Levite was the sixth child of seven born to Frederick and Mary Demrise Parent Ouellette. He had 2 sisters and 4 brothers.

Born in Canada, his family would soon move to Anaconda Montana where he would live until about 1920.

On February 19, 1912 he married Mary Josephine Opray (1892-1918) and they would have three children.

Therese Imelda Ouellette Wilson (1913-1973)
Levite "Joe" Joseph Ouellette (1914-2005)
Warren Frank Ouellette (1917-2001)

Mary would die in the 1918 flu pandemic (the Spanish Flu). She died in Dec 1918 leaving Levite with three small children to raise. The youngest Warren being just 14 months old. Levite made the decision to go to San Francisco to look for work leaving the children in the care of the maternal grandparents, the Opray family.

Levite found work as a linotype operator. As the name implies, the Linotype is a machine that produces a solid "line of type." Introduced about 1886, it was used for generations by newspapers and general printers. So Levite found his life's work. In San Diego he worked for the San Diego Sun until it closed in 1939. He went on to work for the San Diego Daily Journal and was still working there in 1947.

Meeting in San Francisco and then marrying about 1922, Florence Blymyer Miller (1890-1982). Florence had one son from her previous marriage, Ceja James Miller (1913-2006), they would move on to San Diego California and be joined by the Ouellette children.
