David K ""Doc"" Livingston(1953 - 2013)

Maj. David K. Livingston, U.S. Air Force (Ret.)
"Doctor Livingston I presume..." Doc, a name given to him upon his first assignment by his squadron commander. No silver wings needed now; he has his own.
Originally from Dayton, Ohio, David entered the Air Force Academy and graduated in 1975. Doc became a fighter pilot, proudly serving his country for 20 years. After military retirement, Doc began working for the Fort Walton Beach Golf Club until his early earthly departure 18 years later.
David left behind his loving wife Cherie; his goober, Kelsey; doting mother, LaDona; and brothers, Bob and Steve; along with many family and friends too numerous to count. Arrangements are being made for a fall military send-off at Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola, Fla.
A celebration of life will be held at Two Trees Restaurant and the Fort Walton Beach Golf Club on Sunday, Dec. 29, from 3 to 5 p.m. We invite all who knew Doc or Cherie to join us.
