Obituary

Adam Livingstone, long-time resident of Pleasantville, NY, passed away on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 in Chatham, Massachusetts at the age of 91. Adam was born on August 17, 1928 to Mary and Adam Livingstone who had both emigrated from Scotland. He grew up on an estate in Bedford Hills where his parents were both employed. Adam had fond memories of being driven to school by the estate’s chauffeur with the other children who lived on the estate. Adam attended Bedford Hills High School where he was very involved in student activities - senior class president, basketball team and band. He met his wife Phyllis after a basketball game at Pleasantville High School and they married in 1949.

He received both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Education from New York University. He served overseas in the Air Force and was stationed in Newfoundland as an air traffic control supervisor 64th Air Division during the Korean War. Adam was a history teacher at Mt. Kisco High School beginning in 1954, moving to Fox Lane High School when it opened in 1957. Adam then completed the major part of his career as a guidance counselor at Yorktown High School retiring in 1996.

Adam was a member of the Presbyterian Church where he served as deacon, Sunday school teacher and assistant scoutmaster. He also belonged to the Moses Taylor Jr. American Legion Post #136 holding the offices of service officer and historian.

Adam loved traveling especially his many trips to Europe which he enjoyed planning and mapping out in great detail. His most cherished memories were with his family, both in his beloved Pleasantville and during long days at the beach in Chatham. He was a history buff and had a remarkable memory for all things historical as well as sports trivia. In Pleasantville, Adam enjoyed walking downtown to the post office and puttering around his yard. He was a kind, devoted family man and was always interested in what was happening in his family’s lives and the lives of others.
Adam is survived by his son Christopher (Peggy) of New Milford, CT and daughter Patricia O’Leary (John) of Ipswich, MA, grandchildren Jennifer, Kelly, Jack, Molly, Dylan, Sean and great grandson Jackson S. He was predeceased by his wife of 71 years, Phyllis and son, Curtis Stephen.
A private funeral will take place Friday, June 5th, 2020 at Beecher’s-Flooks Funeral home with burial to follow at Kensico Cemetery.
