Dr. Michael Claude Philip Livingston May 9, 1928 - July 25, 2014 Born on May 9th, 1928 to Sir Philip and Lady Livingston, Michael grew up in London just before and during WWII. Witnessing his father's career as an eye doctor in the RAF, he followed his footsteps into medicine. Michael was educated at Cambridge University, St. Thomas' Hospital and University of Alberta. He practiced medicine for 40+ years, caring for the Richmond Community with privileges at the Richmond General Hospital. As a family doctor he cared deeply about the patient, their story and was often generous with his time. He had many articles published in various medical journals and wrote 3 books: "Family Medicine an Inside Look", "Back Aid" and "Listening in Medicine." His passion for life extended beyond medicine to his family, sports and nature. He loved fly-fishing, dogs, hunting ducks and grouse, racquet sports, skiing, music, reading and of course, cricket. A strong batsman and leg-spin bowler, cricket had a special place in Michael's heart. He quietly led by example and was an amazing father to John, Peter and Timothy and a devoted husband to his wife of 57 years, Diana who passed away earlier this year. He is survived by his sons, John and Peter, and 5 grandchildren, Philip, Michael, Kaylyn, William and Sophie. We remember Michael as a loving, caring, thoughtful person who made a difference in many of the lives he touched. A Memorial Service will be held at St. Mary's Kerrisdale Church (2490 W. 37th Ave. at Larch St.) on Saturday, August 9th, 2014 at 10:00 a.m.
