The name of Harry Lopate's father was Leyb/Leib Dovid HaLevi. He had a double given name. while HaLevi is a designation indicating that he was a descendent of the biblical tribe of Levi. The designation is passed down from father to son, provided that the child is born of a Jewish mother. No surname is mentioned in Hebrew on the stone.....Jo
