Lowell Henry "Hank" Livingston On Saturday, June 8th, 2024, Lowell Henry “Hank” Livingston passed away after a brief illness at his home in Decatur, Alabama, in the company of his cherished family. Shelton Funeral Home assisted the family.

A Memorial Service will be Thursday, July 11th, 2024 at 2:00 PM at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Decatur, Alabama, with Reverend Tripp Brogdon officiating. The family will receive friends from 1:00 PM until 2:00 PM prior to the service.

He was born October 5th, 1942, to Lowell H. Livingston, Sr. and Jean (Whiteley) Livingston.
Raised in Marshall, Michigan, Hank was a member of that city’s 1960 high school graduating class
and an accomplished athlete as well as an outstanding math and science student. While still a student, civic organizations such as the Junior Rotarians and Wolverine Boys State recognized him as a promising community leader. He earned a degree in pulp and paper technology (chemical engineering) from Western Michigan University and spent his professional career in the service of the paper industry, first in Michigan and then the balance of his career at the Champion Paper Company in Courtland, Alabama where he became an expert in computer process controls.
Always an engineer in his head and in his heart, after retirement, Hank put his love for all things technical and mechanical to work as an indefatigable servant to his community. For years, he could be found swinging a hammer on the roof of a house for Habitat for Humanity on whose local board he served. When his knees and common sense said it was time to get off the roof, he trained as a volunteer tax preparer for the elderly and others who needed assistance with their income taxes.

Hank is survived by his devoted wife of 57 years, Linda (née Hogenson) and a sister, Phyllis (Michael Mumaw) and by his children Lowell (Sayuri Inoue), Tammy (Luis DeLeon), Mary Kathryn (Katy), and Andrew (Carie Prevo). Also, by his grandchildren Robert, Rachel (Dylan Davis) and Sophia plus a great-granddaughter and several nieces and nephews and great nephews.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Morgan County Habitat for Humanity in his memory would be appreciated.
