Yes he was a great teacher. I had him for a little under a year in first year algebra. I was so happy to learn from him. He was a true master. He is the reason I became a math teacher. Thanks to God for all his years of teaching.

Mr. Leverence was one of the great ones. We have often thought of him respectfully and fondly often over the years, and will continue to do so. Our own children have been amused and entertained by our stories of math classes with him at the blackboard. I have never seen a piece of chalk without thinking of Mr. Leverence!! He was truly a powerful influence in the lives of countless young people who were privileged to learn from him! We are rejoicing through our tears that he has entered into his heavenly home. Well done, good and faithful servant; we’ll see you soon, Mr. L.!
I was privileged to have Ken for senior math. In his own quiet way he challenged me to reach levels I never thought I could achieve. Because of him, college calculus was a breeze. I’ll be thankful forever.
After college I had the opportunity to come back to Wisco and teach alongside my high school instructors. They treated me as an equal when I definitely was not. I was a rookie and buried, just trying to keep my head above water. Ken along with Walt Sebald and Herb Sitz took me under their wings and gently taught me the way. Ken had a way of knowing when you were down and just needed some positive encouragement. I will always remember him as one of my most important personal mentors and friend. Lifelong great teachers like Ken should be cherished by all of us.
My heart and prayers to the Leverance family. I was blessed to share the faculty lounge with him for a time in the 90’s and his stories and encouragements were a great blessing and inspiration to me. Many memories to be cherished for sure!
Ken was a great friend and teacher. I gave him credit for each step of my academic career.
He introduced us to the world of computers (back in the day when they were “new”), and always had time to talk and share ideas. A great teacher and caring man. My sympathy to his family.
My prayers for the Leverence Family. H e was one of my favorite teachers at WISCO.
Mr. Leverence was my teacher many years ago. I still remember him fondly. He was a wonderful person and a faithful servant of God. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family in their time of loss. He will be missed.
Our sympathies to you all. May Jesus’ promises comfort you in the days ahead. Ken and Sue Brokmeier.
Prayers to all in the Leverence family. You all are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. We also rejoice in knowing that he is now in the arms of our Savior, Jesus. Tom and Chris Benzing
