Levi Stoneburner Jr. Obituary

Levi Edgar Stoneburner, 87 of Zanesville passed away at his home, embraced in the arms of his best friend and loving wife, Phyllis.

Levi, fondly called “Pappy” by his family and “Stoney” by his friends, was born to Levi and Josephine Stoneburner on April 4, 1936, in East Fultonham, Ohio.  He served his country in the Unites States Air Force before beginning a long career traveling the country, transporting goods for various trucking companies.

After retirement, Levi enjoyed his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, attending their sporting events and celebrating birthdays and holidays together.  Family was always first and foremost in his heart, offering his unconditional love always; a gift we will carry forever.
