Obituary of Byron David Livingston
Byron David Livingston, 67, of Swansea, SC entered his Eternal Home with Jesus on November 9, 2023.
Born in North, SC, he was a son of the late George Clarence Livingston, Jr. and Pauline Reed Livingston. He grew up on the farm where he learned to drive a tractor at an early age. He enjoyed many hobbies including hunting and fishing. He raced his dirt track car at Sumter Speedway, and found his passion for motorcycles in his later years. He loved riding his Harley Davidson with many friends and was known as “Cricket”. His other loves were his Corvette and Mustang 5.0.
Byron was a long distance truck driver and traveled the United States in his early years. He then went on to operate heavy equipment for Lad Corporation where he later retired. After retirement, he and Judy spent summers in Maggie Valley, NC where they made a “Home Away from Home” where they made many beloved friends.
