Levi Stewart Udall was born January 20, 1891 at St. Johns, Arizona. He is the brother of past Chief Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court, Jesse A.Udall. Levi attended public school in St. Johns, completed his secondary education at Gila Academy in Thatcher (1910-1911), and briefly attended the University of Arizona in Tucson. In 1914, he married Louise Lee of Thatcher. They are the parents of Inez, Elma, Stewart, Morris, Eloise, and Burr Udall.

For twenty-eight years, Levi served in the Apache County Courthouse in various public service positions including: Clerk for the County Board of Supervisors (1915-1918); Clerk of the Superior Court (1919-1922); in 1922 he was admitted to the Arizona State Bar; County Attorney for two terms (1923-24 and 1927-28); and Judge of the Superior Court (1931-1946). In January 1947, Levi was elected to the office of Judge of the Supreme Court of Arizona, a position he held until his death on May 30,1960 in Wickenburg, Arizona.

A member of many civic associations, Levi was awarded both the Medallion of Merit (1959) and an honorary Doctor of Laws (1960) by the University of Arizona. From 1915-1920, he held the position of Ward president for the Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association (1915-1920), a Mormon organization, and was ordained into the priesthood by his father, David K.
