SFC Levi Aaron Presley, 34, of Crestview, FL passed away on December 12, 2020, of a rare autoimmune disease. He was born on September 6, 1986, in Milwaukie, Oregon. Levi grew up hiking, camping, and fishing throughout the State of Oregon. He developed an interest in BMX bikes and created many friendships. He loved to swing dance. He loved exploring National Parks and Monuments, drinking beer, traveling, and being surrounded by his family. Prior to his passing, he took his entire family to Disney World. Levi was father to a blended family of six children, all of whom he loved fiercely. He and his wife, Erin Presley of Fort Brag, NC, lived with all six children in Crestview at the time of Levi's death. He loved gaming and collected several friends in the gaming world. He had an infectious laugh. He couldn't play poker because his dimples gave him away every time, nor could he lie to his mother. He had a way of being sarcastic that left you wondering if he was funny or dead serious.

Levi enlisted in the U.S. Army in 2004. After completing Basic Training, he was assigned to several different duty stations including South Korea, as well as graduating Airborne school. He loved jumping out of airplanes and helicopters. He made two deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan where he was critical to maintaining the Satellite Communications Network that allowed for effective command and control throughout each country. He earned numerous awardsand decorations for his achievements during his enlistment.

He was beloved of his father-in-law, his brother-in-law, and all who knew him. He left behind not only his beloved wife, Erin, but his six children: Kaysie, Justin, Micah, Lorinne, John, and Nolan. He also left behind his mother and father, Donald and Jaci Presley, or Oregon City, Oregon as well as his sister, Arwen Weisser of Homer, AK, brother-in-law Samuel Weisser, and three nephews and one niece. Levi was a great Soldier, father and hero, brother, and son, both to his family and to his 7th Group family. He will be loved and missed by all who knew him.

He will be forever missed.
