Tom Livsey Navy linguist, restaurant manager/caterer, missionary
Thomas (Tom) Livsey passed away Thursday, July 5, 2012 following a long illness.
Tom was born in Scranton on June 5, 1937 and grew up in Manhattan, N.Y.
He graduated from Cardinal Hayes High School in 1956 and joined the Navy, where he served for 20 years as a linguist. After retiring from the Navy, Tom earned a degree in business administration from the University of New Mexico. He had a lifelong interest in cooking and spent much of his career working in restaurant management, commercial catering and nonprofit foodservice. His dedication to community service included providing vocational rehabilitation training to disabled persons, the indigent and former inmates. In his later years, Tom served with Phyllis, his wife of almost 30 years, as missionaries for China Outreach Ministries working with Chinese students in Shanghai and at the University of Florida.
The Livsey family originally lived in the Lititz and Ephrata area and were active at Lancaster Evangelical Free Church (LEFC).
Tom is survived by his wife: Phyllis; his sister, Barbara; his children: Thomas, Carol, Debi, Phillip, Alicia and Aaron; their spouses: Sharon, James, Rocky, Rebekah and Joni; seven grandchildren: Kimberly, Chris, Jan, Carilee, Kari, Andrew and Connor; and three great-grandchildren.
A special memorial service will be held Sept. 29 at the LEFC with family visitation from 10 to 11 a.m. and memorial service from 11 a.m. to noon. Glen Osborn, president of China Outreach Ministries, will serve as special speaker as well as several of Tom’s friends and co-workers. LEFC is located at 419 Pierson Road, just off Route 772, 1 1/2 miles east of the square of Lititz.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to China Outreach Ministries, 555 Gettysburg Pike, A200, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055 or online at chinaoutreach.org.
