Joseph Lee Livingston a.k.a. Marlon, an amazing son, brother, friend, and HANDS DOWN most awesome kid, passed on December 24, 2017 from injuries sustained in a car accident. He was born on March 7, 2001 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota to Brad and Amber Livingston. Joseph grew up in Marshalltown, Iowa where he attended Franklin Elementary, Lenihan Intermediate School, Miller Middle School, and then BCLUW in Conrad, Iowa. Joseph was a Junior at Southeast Polk High School. He will be missed by so many of his friends and classmates.

Joseph had a love for the arts, from music to movies his taste was impeccable! As a young boy, Joseph loved Thomas the Tank Engine and Baby Einstein. That love evolved to Nintendo and the Super Mario Brothers, Star Wars, The Terminator and Quentin Tarantino movies. Joseph loved to draw, paint, write stories and listen to classic rock music. His favorite bands included Oasis, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, just to name a few. He put his love of music into his own talents and recently taught himself to play a right-handed guitar, despite being left-handed.

He is survived by his proud and loving parents, Brad Livingston and Amber (Craig) Hayes; siblings; Adam, Aaron, Maddie, Molly, Juliana, and Joshua Livingston; step-siblings, Palmer, Brant, and Karlee Hayes; grandparents, Jim and Mary Vollmer, Brenda and Mike Dowd; step -grandparents, Bud and Judy Hayes; and a host of extended family and friends.

Joseph was preceded in death by his grandpa Richard Frazee.
