My condolences to Nate’s family. He was a brother-in-law to me when I was married to his step sister, Jackie. We became friends in the 70’s and he sold us our first used car. Semper Fi’ to a brother Marine!

My condolences to the Levitan family.  We bought a car in the 90’s and Nate always called on the holidays even decades later.  Wonderful man.  May he rest in peace.

So sorry to hear about Nates passing. He was friend of my dads since I was a little girl. He sold me my first car. Him and my dad use to talk cars all the time and they did a lot of buy and sell to each other. So many memories of then.
