Let the memory of Levi be with us forever
Levi was the oldest of my sons and middle child of my 5 children. He was born with a smile on his face. Levi loved his wife, son, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews,grandma and grandpa Casper, and his IROQ. He came home from Afghanistan suffering from PTSD. 5 years later he took his life. Levi was blessed to have a son, Dylan Lewis Derby. Levi met and married his wife Dianna Higgens after his return from Afghanistan. To those of us that knew him, we will always love him and never forget him. ~Judith S Casper

 Levi's hobbie was racing his 1986 IROC and fishing. He loved children.
Levi's neices and nephews were his whole word for many years. He loved
his grandma and grandpa as his own parents. He was very very close to
them. But then in May of 2005 he became a father of his son Dylan! His
dream had come true. Dylan and his wife Dianna were is world.
