Obituary of Frederick Sutherland Livingston


Frederick ( Fred) Sutherland Livingston :  Dad’s favourite saying was “It’s a large day” and so fitting that he would pass away on July 1st 2019.  Born January 23rd 1930 at the Aberdeen hospital New Glasgow. Dad lived all of his life between the communities of Greenwood and Thorburn.  He was a devoted husband to Joyce (MacDonald) for 61 yrs until her passing in 2011. He was also a very proud father, Grandfather and Great-grandfather.  Dad was the son of the late Christena (MacLeod) & Fred Livingston Sr.  He was predeceased by brother John (Marion) Livingston, Sister Isabel (Clifford) MacDonald, sister in law Naida (MacNeil)& Bob Gregory. He is survived by daughter Tena (Paul) MacLellan, grandchildren  Nick (Kayla) Arbuckle, Nicole (Will) McGee, Cailan MacLellan & great grandson Bentley McGee, Nephews Calder Livingston, Rob Gregory, Nieces Helen (Bill) Fox, Melinda (Paul) Currie and several great niecies & nephews.  Dad or Bup, as a lot of people knew him was a true gentleman, for as long as he was still able he wanted to hold the door open for you.  Dad worked as a telegraph delivery boy during the 2nd world war, he then worked at Trenton Works catching hot bolts as he would say.  His life long career was with Maritime Tel & Tel for over 43 years.  He made a number of life long friendships at both work and play as him and Mom were long term campers at D & B Campgound in Black Point. Dad was one of many that put hours in at fund raising to open up the new rink in Thorburn where he coached minor hockey for numerous years.  He was a member of Union Presbyterian Church where he served as Elder for over 50 years, he also served on the board of managers and was a Sunday school teacher. Dad was also active himself playing hockey and lob ball - well past when he should have been playing as Mom worried every time he would leave for the rink.  He loved seeing his grand children participating in their sports as well, wether they be playing hockey, Soccer, rugby or highland dancing.  He even loved hearing the fiddle being practiced. Dads remains will rest in the H.W.Angus Funeral Home  for visitation  from 2-4 &7-9 P.M. on Thursday ,July 4th , 2019 .
