Robert Levon Reeves

June 10, 1936 — March 17, 2023

Mount Pleasant

Born in Brundidge, Alabama June 10, 1936 to Robert and Donie Reeves as the oldest of 4 siblings. Levon loved the outdoors and growing up in rural Alabama made it easy to fulfill a lifetime dream of hunting and fishing. At a young age, he fished from the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the lakes of the Tennessee River. He entered the US Army in 1954 and soon after his service he married Ms Linda Lee in 1958 while both attending Troy State University. They soon after took up residence together in Troy, Alabama. Levon and Linda moved to North Alabama in 1964 where he pursued a career in the office supply business while continuing his love for fishing on the Guntersville, Alabama lakes. In 1970 he made a career move while working for Daniel International Construction Company that would take him and his young family to Charleston, SC for his next career in construction management, in Berkeley County on the large project for Dupont Cooperation, Cooper River Facility. While engaged in the management of the large construction project for Daniel Construction, he continued his life long love of golf, hunting and fishing on lakes, rivers and now the Atlantic Ocean. Levon became more involved in finding his dream job in 1976 with the start-up of the family's business of charter fishing in the Gulfstream offshore of South Carolina. His love for fishing evolved into his final career of the fishing business for many years to come while raising a family in Berkeley County and later on Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant. He made many dreams fulfilled in the next 35 years by taking families and tourist fishing aboard the vessel "Thunderstar" and other boats from the Charleston City Municipal Marina to Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant. He became known as "Captain Levon" on Shem Creek for many years with his passion for fishing. Levon had an open door to mentor and even provided a home at times for many young boat mates and captains pursuing a life on the ocean.

Mr. Levon and Mrs. Reeves had become close to Christ and attended First Baptist Church of Mount Pleasant in his late life. He is survived by Mrs. Linda Lee Reeves and two sons, Stuart Reeves (Robin) and Dr. Steve Reeves. Grandchildren, Amber Lee Worthen, Jeremy Reeves and great grandchild, Dylan Chance Worthen.
