He was born Jan. 23, 1933, in Thayne, Wyo., to Clinton and Leone Livingston. He was raised in Alpine, the third of eight children.
His life without education was often hard, but after joining the U.S. Navy at 20, he made his living in construction and ranching, becoming a jack of all trades.
Survivors include a son, Ronnie Bowman of Idaho Falls, Idaho; and siblings Barbara Ellis of Ririe, Idaho, Darlene Frey (Leonard) of Cody, Gloria Knight of Etna, Ted (Lylia) Livingston of Cody, Anne McCraw of Idaho Falls and Pamela Foulds (Gordon) of Idaho Falls.
He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Douglas Livingston.
Graveside services will be Friday, Sept. 26 at 10 a.m. at Riverside Cemetery in Cody. Thompson Funeral Home is in charge.
