As you know Andrew S. A. Levine, GPANDA, passed away at 2:20 PM today at the North Shore Hospice facility in Danvers, MA. He was in a truly lovely peaceful location with Beth and others at his side.

Most of us from the Asia Board knew him best as simply Gpanda. He was fun, informative, bright (just ask him), loveable and very generous with his time. He will be missed. When his obit is ready, I will reproduce it here for you to read.

A memorial fund has been set up in his honor. We would welcome your participation in this fund. Beth would like to honor him by making funds available in his name at the Moo Baan Alternative Education Community (School) near Kanchanaburi, Thailand. This is a place that spoke to Andy and Beth’s hearts when they visited there a couple of years ago. Hanuman has agreed to assist us with the funds from the Thai side.

If you would wish to honor Andy’s memory please direct your funds to:

The Andrew S.A. Levine Fund
% Robert Kimball
9 Ridgeway Avenue
Needham, MA 02492 USA

We are all saddened by what has transpired over the last year and ½, but Andy is now with the other stars in the sky and resting comfortably.

We encourage you to leave messages here, both reverent and irreverent (his preference) in Andy’s honor. At a later date, Beth and others will enjoy reading them.

We thank the Fodor’s senior editor for allowing us to post this memorial site here.
