Don was born on August 31, 1943, in Many, Louisiana to Roy Livingston and Bertha Rivers Livingston, and passed away on May 31, 2022, in Bossier City, Louisiana.
Don loved having family and friends around hosting cookouts for holidays, birthdays, sporting events or simply because the sun rose. Don had unconditional love for his children and grandchildren who meant the world to him, nothing made him happier than holding his babies in his lap. For those that had the honor of knowing Don, he was the strongest man we knew, surviving many trials and tribulations without the slightest complaint and always standing steadfast as the patriarch of the family. He never met a stranger and would go above and beyond for anyone that crossed his path. Don enjoyed a good time and was known as a venturer in games of chance. He enjoyed football on Sunday afternoons, his favorite team was the Cleveland Browns or any team that was beating the odds. Don had a great sense of humor, a quick wit, and an infectious laugh and was loved by all he and his presence will be greatly missed.
