Mr. Livingston was born April 19, 1934 in Shell Lake, Wisconsin to Robert Livingston and Martha Shorey Livingston, and passed away on Sunday, September 8, 2019 in Marshall, TX.
Warren Livingston grew up in Shell Lake, Wisconsin, and upon completing high school he trained and competed as a welter weight boxer. After a short career in the ring, Mr. Livingston would go on to enlist in the National Guard and after serving six years, he enlisted into the United States Air Force. Warren went on to become a B-52 Bomber Pilot where he would fly several successful missions and rise to the ranks of Major. One of Mr. Livingston’s favorite stories was of landing a training flight in a cornfield, and when asked by the trainer “what are we going to do about this?” Warren responded, “Pass me, I landed safely.” Mr. Livingston completed a 24 year career in the USAF and moved his family to Marshall, TX. Warren would go on to receive his LVN, become a certified welder, and enjoyed maintaining his old Ford Tractor. The Wednesday Night Poker Group will be missing a great host, a good bluff, and a fun player. Warren was a man of values and his family and friends will miss his stories, kindness, and his sly sense of humor.
Mr. Livingston is preceded in death by his loving wife, Marjorie Lewis Livingston; two sons, David Livingston, and Joe Livingston; and his daughter, Kelley Livingston. He is survived by his brother, Dan Livingston, of Shell Lake Wisconsin; daughter-in-law, Angela Livingston, and several nieces and nephews, and numerous friends.
