He was born October 21, 1947 in California, Missouri, the son of Grayson Mack Livingston and Florence (Evans) Livingston. He was a graduate of California High School. Alan began his working career in construction and later went into law enforcement.

From 1995 until 2017 he and his wife, Betty, owned and operated Discount Smokes and Liquor in Nixa. Alan was always a hard worker, enjoying all tasks he needed to do. In his spare time, Alan liked playing his guitar, watching Westerns and listening to bluegrass and country music. He also loved spending time outdoors fishing and hunting. He loved his family and will be missed by each one of them. Survivors include: His wife, Betty; a son, Rex Livingston and wife Janet of Flower Mound, TX; grandchildren, Peyton and Jonathan Livingston; step-daughters, Donna Carpenter of Beatrice Nebraska, Susan Young of Overland Park, Kansas, Shelly Krueger and husband Chris of Lake St. Louis, Missouri, and Mary Kettle of Sedalia, Missouri; several step-grandchildren; and a sister-in-law Sharlene Livingston of Sheridan, Wyoming.

Betty, I remember when you and Al met. It was my birthday and you were together from then until the end. You built a wonderful life together. He and Ben had met years before and been such good friends. When you visited there were always so many shared memories and stories. I am sure now they are together sharing those stories again. We will all miss him. Love you, Dorothy
