You don't have to be a Xavierian to be aware of a man like the late Revd Brother Charles Levin. I considered it a great honour to have met this former Brother Director of the Saint Xavier's Institution at the Dewan Sri Pinang in July 2010 when he was made a Datuk at an investiture ceremony on the occasion of the official birthday of the Penang Governor. Getting to meet him was momentous enough for me to have this picture taken with him.
Yesterday morning (14 Oct 2012), I received a message that Brother Charles had passed away at the SXI grounds. According to the newspapers, he had been complaining of pain since last Friday but early yesterday morning, he was rushed to hospital but died soon afterwards.
Brother Charles was German and his real name was Karl Henry Theodor Wolff.
