John Livingston Wycliffe

Wyc passed peacefully into the presence of his Lord and Saviour in the evening on October 15th. Wyc was born In Lurgan, Northern Ireland to Robert and Annie Livingston. He had three sisters and three brothers.

He married Ruby Wilson in 1948 and on their honeymoon, they emigrated to Canada and worked on the Solly Poultry farm in Duncan, B.C.

Wyc worked for Heinz Foods and Carlton Cards. Feeling the call to be missionaries, they left Canada in 1955 with two young children and went to work in Lima Peru. Wyc & Ruby served God as missionaries in Lima for 20 years, returning to Vancouver where Wyc was administrator of Blenheim Lodge until his retirement. They retired to Saltspring Island and enjoyed many wonderful years there.

Wyc had an enduring and secure faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that governed his every action in life. He was a deep thinker and gentle beyond measure.

Wyc is survived by his wife of 64 years, Ruby Livingston, his younger sister Bertha McNally of Northern Ireland, his children Stan (Joyce) Livingston of Qualicum Beach, Maureen (Chris) Gix of Saltspring Island and Susan (Martie) Goulding of Ladner. He is also survived by his adoring grandchildren – Maia, Kristy, Emily, Eryn and Caleigh, his only great grandaughter Alana Garland, many family members in B.C. and around the world.

Private family graveside service October 20th, memorial service Saturday October 27th at 2:30 pm at the Saltspring Community Gospel Church.

Our sincere thanks to Dr. Reznick, Dr. Woodley, the caring staff at Lady Minto Hospital and his wonderful home support workers.

Donations may be made in dad’s memory to MSC Canada for the work in San Martin de Porres, Lima Peru, c/o Gordon Wakefield.
