Sir montague B Levine 14 February 2013


It was with great sadness that the Society has learned of the death of Sir Montague B. Levine.  He died early this morning 14 February 2013, aged 89.  He served as Coroner for Inner South London for many years until 1997, and was given the Freedom of the London Borough of Southwark on his retirement.  He wrote Levine on Coroners and was a great source of wisdom and support for me and many other Coroners, Deputies and Assistants.  He had a big personality and a big heart; he was kind, compassionate, with a great sense of humour.   Underneath his enthusiastic and cheerful exterior was a man who worked extremely hard and conscientiously, and whose overriding objective was to act fairly and professionally to all people at all times.
