Yosef Levy, 57
Aug 18, 2011 - Yosef Levy, 57, of Holon was one of eight victims of a series of terrorist attacks perpetrated against civilians and IDF soldiers in Israel''s southern region.
Yosef Levy was driving back home with his wife from a vacation in Eilat when the attack occurred. They were ambushed by a terrorist who rained bullets on their vehicle, causing it to skid to a halt and flip over. Yosef was killed and his wife Esther suffered a gunshot wound.
Yosef was a veteran employee of over 30 years of Elbit Systems, and had recently been appointed head of a department. "He was such a good man. The salt of the earth. This is a tremendous loss," related a cousin.
Yosef Levy was buried in Holon. He is survived by his wife Esther, two sons - Eliran, 27 and Ra''anan, 24 - and daughter Urel, 17.
