Livingston, Laurence "Swede"  
LAURENCE "SWEDE" LIVINGSTON May 7, 1938 ~ June 20, 2016 Swede was 78 when he passed away from congestive heart failure in Vancouver, WA. He was born in Kalispell, MT. Swede lived there for the first few years of his life, until his parents and sister moved to Bremerton, WA. As a young boy growing up, he played Pop Warner football. In Jr. High and High School, Swede played football, basketball, and baseball. He lettered in all three sports and graduated from Central Kitsap in 1957. As a young boy, Swede would practice basketball outside on a gravel driveway with a basket attached to a light pole. He earned a scholarship to Olympic Jr. College, and went on to Central College of Education where he held a record for the most consecutive free throws. In baseball, Swede was the only all-star to make the State Squad and athlete-of-the- year in 1955. His batting average was .545, the highest in the league. In league games alone, he batted .600. Swede pitched, caught, and played outfield or whatever was needed because of his batting average. He moved from Bremerton to Portland, OR, and then to Vancouver, WA in 1963. While employed at Safeway, he met the challenge of his life, his wife Joyce Uhacz, and were married in 1965. Swede and Joyce have two children, Suzanne and Mike. He spent six years coaching Mike in the Evergreen Little League, coached and managed the all-stars for three years, and went to state one of those years. He also coached YMCA Basketball for three years. Although gymnastics was out of his league, he was a big supporter of Suzanne in gymnastics and dance. Swede and Joyce were known to cut a mean rug on the dance floor, they enjoyed golfing together, playing racquet ball, and water skiing. He loved to fish, clam and go camping. He spent lots of time fishing the Toutle River with his parents and later enjoyed fishing with Suzanne, Troy, granddaughters, and many friends. Clamming was an annual event from way back when, until last year. His grandchildren were the love of his life. Swede is survived by his wife of 51 years, Joyce; daughter, Suzanne (Troy) Griffin and Mike (Jodie) Livingston; grandchildren, Michael, Brandon, Brittnie, and Amber; sister, Rita Bergin of Silverdale, WA; in-laws, JoAnne (Karl) Byers and Carol (Alan) Parker. He was preceded in death by his parents, Smith and Beth Livingston. We want to thank Hospice-Peace Health Heart Connection "Karla", an angel sent from above. A memorial service will be held June 25, 2016 at 10a.m. at Evergreen Memorial Gardens. A luncheon will follow at the Livingston home. Please sign his guest book at: www.columbian.com/obits .
