    In Memoriam: Bradley “Scott” Levine, Former President of GGBA and the Rainbow Business Association

    Bradley Scott Levine, a Bay Area-based attorney and LGBTQ community leader, died on July 20, 2022.

    Born in 1958, Scott grew up in New York State and was the son of Chuck and Natalie Levine. He spent his teen years in Florida after his family, including brother Marc, relocated. He entered college at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA, at the age of 16. Following his graduation in 1979, he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area to enter the University of San Francisco Law School, where he excelled and earned the coveted American Jurisprudence Award in Corporation Law and graduated in 1982. He completed the LLM advanced law degree from Golden Gate University Law School.

    His career in law spanned more than four decades and included his active practice followed by service as an arbitrator/mediator where he helped litigants settle disputes out of court. The San Francisco Bay Times was among his clients.

    Scott loved living in San Francisco and made his permanent home there with partner Kevin Cox. He became “Uncle Scott” to Kevin’s many nieces and nephews and was deeply admired and inspired by Kevin’s mother, Juanita. Scott and Kevin’s relationship spanned 28 remarkable years and they acknowledged bringing out the best in each other.

    Scott was a volunteer and leader in the Bay Area’s LGBTQ community, serving as president of the Golden Gate Business Association (GGBA), where he was revered as a Business Networking Group leader. He also served as president of the Rainbow Business Association in the East Bay and was known for organizing San Francisco Bay cruise parties during the holiday season in December.

    Members of the San Francisco Bay Times team fondly remember Scott for his role in carrying the banner in the newspaper’s San Francisco Pride Parade contingent for several years as well as for his legal counsel.

    A memorial service was held at the Green Lawn Memorial Park Chapel in Colma. Memorial gifts in Scott’s memory may be made to the GGBA:
