Obituary of Barry Joseph Livingstone

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Barry Joesph Livingstone. A husband, a father, and a friend. Barry passed peacefully at home with his loving wife of 61 years, Millie, on Sunday July 16th just 4 days before his 90th birthday. Barry was a career millwright at Kellogg’s in London, Ontario. He was a voracious reader, an avid skier and golfer and loved playing cards. Barry and Millie travelled the world extensively and enjoyed close friendships with Peter and Cathy Mills, Peter and Janet LaFleche, Keith Thomas, and the whole San Lan Ranch gang in Florida. Barry leaves behind his devoted companion and wife of 60+ years, Millie (Marsh) Livingstone and two sons and daughter-in-law-laws who adored him, Chris Livingstone (Mary Walker) and Rob Livingstone (Remily Starbuck). Barry thoroughly enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, Molly and Morgan, as well as Jennifer and Jordan and their significant others, Vicky, Jason, and Dani. Barry was lucky enough to even get to know his great grandchildren, Ivy, Kamdyn, and Kinsley. His brother-in-law, Brian Marsh (Brenda) held a special place in his life as did all his nieces and nephews, Leeann, Diane, Terry, Cathy, and Judy. Barry was predeceased by his parents, Keith and Frances (Burke) Livingstone, siblings, Peter Livingstone and Patricia Peckham as well as nephew, Tammy Peckham. We will miss his sharp wit and intellect, his endless curiosity and interests in all things, his pragmatic view of the world and his best intentions towards those he loved. He was very human in every way, and we loved him dearly. Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of T.J. Tracey Cremation and Burial Specialists, 6 Churchill Drive, Sydney, 902-539-7175. As per Barry’s wishes, there will be no visitation or memorial service, instead we’d ask if you feel compelled to make a donation to your favourite charity including the Downs Syndrome Society of Canada that held a special significance to us.
