DOUGLAS CLAYTON LIVINGSTONE
Born June 11, 1948 in Saskatoon, Sask.
Died Nov 20, 2019 in Calgary, AB.
It is with great sadness that the family of Doug Livingstone announces his passing after losing his battle against Diabetes and Kidney failure, on Weds, Nov 20, 2019 at the age of 71.
Doug was born and raised in Saskatoon, Sask where he attended St. Joseph, St. Mary’s, St. Francis, and St. Paul High School. He was also an altar boy at St. Paul’s church in Saskatoon. Doug left Saskatoon after high school and moved to Calgary where he raised his family.
Doug loved horseracing so much that the racetrack was known as his second home. He also loved golf, football (Go Riders Go), going on picnics with family, and playing cards. Doug also had a passion for traveling the world – his favorite was Barbados and Mexico.
Doug will be lovingly remembered by his wife Tammy, his mini dachshund Smartie, his son Ryan (Carrie), his stepson Rande, son in law Rick, his sister Diane, and his sister Pat (Art). Doug will forever be remembered by his granddaughters Kyrsten, Darrianna and Tayler, his grandson Tiegan (The Little Guy), as well as his father in-law Don, sister in law’s Jacquie, and Vicki (Lavern) and numerous nieces and nephews. Doug is predeceased by his mother Violet, his father Donald, his brother Deryl, his sister Heather, his nephew Dean, his other mini dachshund Squirt, and his beautiful daughter Claycee.
Services for Doug will be held at the Bowness Seniors Centre located at 6422 – 35 Ave NW on Saturday, Dec 7, 2019 at 1:00. A small luncheon will follow. There is a parking lot in the back and side of the building, as well as on-street parking.
Memorial donations may be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada or Diabetes Canada.
My deepest sympathies to Doug’s family on your loss of such a vibrant man! He was fun to work with and to share time with. He will be truly missed. Sandra Hewitt-LeBlanc ( Litemor, House of Light, Brite-Lite ).
You are with your brother Deryl. I will miss you. RIP Brother in law.
I have so many fond and funny memories with Doug. I so wish he wrote that book he always spoke about. Condolences to the entire family.
Doug’s soul shined bright and lit up every room he walked in! Doug was full of life and lived it! He always had a story to tell that would make you laugh! We cherish the memories! We are truly blessed to have known Doug and have him in our lives!
I met Doug at our office (Stampede Park) in the mid-eighties. We shared many an excellent adventure (and some not so excellent) and many laughs over the next three decades. He will be missed! My condolences to Tammy and family.
Sad news for me to read this. Doug and I worked together years ago, we traveled for the job and Doug’s sense of humor made it bearable. We both detested the people we worked for but we really enjoyed working together, he made the worst days on the road fun and enjoyable. Doug made everyone around him laugh. I’ll miss him, be peaceful now my friend….
My deepest condolences to Tammy and all of Doug’s family
My deepest sympathy to the Livingstone family Doug was a wonderful friend and cousin. We didn’t see much of each other in the later years but were inseparable when we were younger. I look back on my childhood and the times and laughter we shared and I would not change those years for anything
I’ll never forget Dougs enthusiasm! He was always happy and could find fun in everything . He truly made everyone feel important. His personality was fun and bold, mixed with a quick wit. When you were beside him you felt ten feet tall. I consider myself blessed to have such wonderful and fond memories of Doug! Rest in peace Doug.
