February’s Presenter is:

John Levy, a licensed attorney, is a senior himself who has a passion for giving back to other seniors. He prides himself on providing fellow seniors with low-cost avenues for avoiding the expensive and lengthy probate experience, and on providing will and health care documents free of charge — “because,” he says, “everyone should have both, regardless of financial circumstance.”  John enjoys spending time with his family and acting as a member of the Lakeway Board of Ethics. He was formerly the President of the Lakeway Newcomers Club and is currently Treasurer of the Lakeway Newcomers Club Alumni. His hobbies include watching sports on television, especially the University of Michigan.
