Arnold S. Levine, formerly of the City of Tonawanda, died Monday in North Carolina, where he had moved in recent months, after a long struggle with his health. He was 85.

Born in Buffalo, Mr. Levine was a machinist for Are Kay Tool on Young Street in the City of Tonawanda for more than 25 years. He retired in the late 1980s.

He served as the team captain and a board member of the Mohawk Rifle and Pistol Club for more than 35 years and helped coordinate events for the Niagara Frontier Pistol League.

Mr. Levine enjoyed racing cars in his younger years and he also enjoyed traveling. He took a cruise to the Bahamas and trips to Disney World, Las Vegas and NRA conventions.

His wife, the former June M. Reynolds, died in 2000.

He is survived by two daughters, Robin-Ann Austin and Tracy Lynn Koch; and two grandchildren.

A service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday in Hamp Funeral Home, 37 Adam St., City of Tonawanda.
