February 25, 2021 at Grace Community Church in Newton. A private family funeral service will be held. Please check back
for instructions for the community to honor Sgt. Minkevitch with a honor line following the family service.
Funeral services for Sgt. Levi Minkevitch are private; however, the family would like to provide the community an opportunity to pay their respects by lining the processional route during Levi’s final patrol.
The procession will begin near SE 14th and Kansas at approximately 11:45 AM on Friday, Feb. 26. The procession will continue north to N Main and then east on East Broadway. Community members are invited to line the procession route to show support to Levi, his family, and the law enforcement community.
The Newton Police Department and the entire law enforcement community are sincerely appreciative of the heartfelt support provided by our community. Levi was the strength of our department in so many ways, and it is obvious by the outpouring of affection and support that he similarly impacted so many in our community. Our deepest condolences, thoughts, and prayers are continually extended to Levi’s family and friends.
