They said Levin was very popular delivering auto parts to body and repair shops across the Philadelphia area.

Anthony Kitt, a shop owner at MrKitt's Service Center, said he last spoke with Levin two weeks ago. They had a long-term friendship that continued after Levin retired.

"There was a post that I had put on Facebook about a business venture that he was familiar with, the location, and when he saw it, he put 'Wow,' on my page, and then he gave me a call," Kitt said. "It was pretty much just general encouragement, 'I watched you 20-plus years ago when we met, to see you where you are now.'"

Kitt said the shock over what happened is being felt by many in Philadelphia who knew Levin.
