Tom Livengood, son of Roy and Margaret Livengood, died on January 9, 2021 at the age of 66 after his valiant fight with COVID. 

He was united in marriage to Cheryl “Cheri” Stottlemyre on October 10, 1981 in Unionville, Missouri.

He was an amazing man who loved cheering on his favorite baseball team, the Kansas City Royals and taking pictures for the Big Reds.  Anyone lucky enough to know Tom knew he loved his family and his faith and love were inspiring.

Tom spent many dedicated years working for Curwood/Bemis in Centerville.

He is survived by his wife, Cheryl “Cheri” and his two children, Brett Livengood and Jamie (Josh) Wiggins; along with his grandchildren, Madyson, Justin and Gabrielle Wiggins.  He is also survived by his siblings, Sally Shepard, Connie (Gene) Davis, and Ron (Diane) Livengood; and a brother-in-law, Jim Sherrard. 

He was preceded in death by his mom and dad, Roy and Margaret Livengood; his sister, Susan Sherrard; and a brother-in-law, Stan Shepard.
