He was born on September 8, 1944, in Winthrop, the son of the late Frank B. and Marie (Cox) Livingston. Terry was raised in Winthrop and Virginia. He graduated from Essex Agricultural High School, Class of 1962.
Terry worked for GE River Works for over 30 years as an inspector. Over the years he won two “Suggestion Awards” that he was very proud of.
He loved family gatherings, especially at the holidays. Terry was a beer enthusiast, who had a passion for seeking out and discovering new micro brews for his family and friends to sample and enjoy. He loved taking family trips to the North Conway, N.H., area and visiting Edelweiss. He always enjoyed taking his children ice skating at the rink on Boston Street. He would also take them to skating competitions and to the Ice Capades show every year. One thing that Terry truly loved was music, especially from the 1950s and 1960s. He also went to see Meatloaf perform last year. Terry loved to garden and was known for his prize roses and tomatoes.
