Attorney Paul Levine, 71, of East Hartford, long-time Deputy Chief Clerk of the Superior Court at Hartford, died after a long illness on Friday (July 18, 2003). Born in Hartford, the son of the late Joseph and Sylvia Levine, he attended local schools and was a graduate of Weaver High School. He later attended the University of Connecticut, where he earned both Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts Degrees. He then attended the Law School of Boston University, where he earned his Bachelor of Laws Degree. In 1959, he was admitted to practice before the Courts of the State of Connecticut. Paul made the decision, unusual for the time, to forego private practice in favor of a career in public service. He spent his entire career in the Clerk's Office where, prior to his retirement in 1994, he became first a fixture and then a legend, and certainly an invaluable resource to all. He was unfailingly gracious and helpful to such an extent that he earned the respect and admiration of all and the abiding affection of many. His desk was the heart of the civil court; the lawyers with whom he dealt, and especially the generations of young colleagues whose careers he assisted, became family to him and to each other. Paul was an innate gentleman, personally modest, but with a keen appreciation for quality in things, and even more, for quality in the characters of the people he knew whose characters he himself helped to mold. He was careful in the formation of his opinions and preferred to listen rather than to speak. Paul possessed a wonderful sense of humor and was without peer in his willingness and desire to be social, simply spending time with and "listening" to friends. He enthusiastically gave of himself never asking for, demanding or expecting anything in return. Paul was truly a best friend. He touched all of us and made our lives better. Paul will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him. Paul had an unusually sunny and optimistic disposition; he was grateful for good fortune and accepting and uncomplaining of bad. In his last illness, instead of bewailing his predicament, he expressed his praise and gratitude to those who treated and assisted him. Paul's survivors wish to express their gratitude, as well, to Dr. Bilgrami, his staff and the staff of St. Francis Hospital, all of whom treated Paul with consummate skill, compassion and dignity. Even on his last journey, Paul went first class. Those who wish to honor his memory may do so by emulating his example and performing some unobtrusive act of generosity or public service. Paul left instructions that no memorial service be held. He had good reason to believe that his life did not need to be marked by ceremony, that his memory was ever secure in the hearts of all who knew him. He is survived by several cousins, his innumerable best friends and by the Superior Court itself, which was for him a living thing and not merely an institution.
