Jack was involved in the auto industry his entire life starting his career at the UCBC. He then went to Ernie Myers Ford as a salesman before starting his own used car lot (Jack’s Auto Sales) in Greenville, OH. In February, 1968 he bought the Ford dealership in Union City, IN and in 1972 switched to Chev. Pont. & Olds. In 1978 he gave up the new car franchise and began used car sales and service which he continued to operate along with his daughter Trish and two of the most loyal employees as well as friends, Alan Longfellow & Stanley Clark. In 2019 he was forced to retire due to his health but always made sure they kept his legacy going. Jack was a member of the Elks Lodge #1534 in Union City. Family was his greatest love in life. He could be found attending his grandchildren’s various sporting events across the Midwest. He was an avid gin player and was never too busy for a game with his grandchildren. The family would like to give the employees of American Heritage a special thanks for the loving care they gave him the past two years. We will forever be grateful.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Edward Livingston, Aline Noggle and stepfather Lawrence Noggle, infant son, Randall Livingston, in-laws Chet &Pauline Wright, brother-in-law, Dan Wright, sister-in-law, Patricia Spradling and infant granddaughter, Emily Livingston.
