The soul of Frederick Allen Livingood slipped into Paradise in the morning hours of the Lord’s Day, May the 31, 2020. Fred was wheeled to the breakfast table that morning, but the Lord decided that He would take Fred on to glory to sit at His table to feast instead. Fred has now been freed from the pains and illnesses of this life and has been restored to even better than his old self.
Only Heaven truly knows the lives that Fred impacted through his life, love, laughter, and ministry that spanned well over 50 years with his wife Carlene by his side until the Lord called her home on October 13, 2017. As a Southern Baptist minister, Fred pastored four churches during his lengthy and faithful ministry: Lawrenceville Baptist, Piner Baptist, Waco Baptist, and Knob Lick Baptist. Their longest tenure was 40 years and six months at Waco Baptist. Fred was devoted to and believed in the ministry of the local church.
Fred was born in Botavia, Ohio November 19, 1941 to J.C. and Dorothy Livengood but soon moved into the Northern Kentucky area where he was raised, married, and pastored until he, Carlene, and their daughter Sheri Renee came to Madison Co. in 1971. Their son Frederick Allen Livingood II joined the family two years later.
Fred was a high school drop-out who struggled in school but went back to get his GED. He then went on to take classes at Georgetown College and finished with a Masters in Psychology from the University of Kentucky. Fred was a fighter and overcomer.
Fred was a man filled with energy and life; for many years he was avid in fishing, hunting, and camping. He loved vacations in Gatlinburg with the family and at the lake on a pontoon boat.
He loved a good basketball game and especially competing in a seven-inning softball game, playing until he was 67. To say that he was competitive is an understatement. If there is a game happening in Heaven right now, Fred is already up to bat.
Fred was a man of passion—passion for His Savior, His family, the Church, his community, State, and Nation. He brought life and joy into all of these with a servant’s heart.
He will be greatly missed by many family members and friends, but his pilgrimage on this earth is over, and he has found rest in his true heavenly home—a home that he invites all to join him through faith in Jesus Christ.
Fred is survived by his brothers and sisters—Gene (Joyce) Livingood, Jim (Margie) Livingood, Mike (Karen) Livengood, Frances “Poogie” Livingood, and Carol Livingood (Kevin Brown), his two children—Sheri (Jeff) Rogers from Berea and Allen (Paula) Livingood from Berea, his grandchildren—Heather (Zachariah) Pennington, Cameron (Peyton) Rogers, Trey Livingood, Tori Livingood, and two great grandchildren—Allison and Madison Pennington.
A Celebration of Life will be from 5-7 pm, Thursday, June 4, 2020 at Waco Baptist Church. Worship services will begin at 7pm. In memory of Fred, donations may be made to Mission Dignity, Guidestone Financial Resources, P.O. Box 819109, Dallas, TX 75381-9109, a mission that financially assists retired pastors.
Condolences may be left for the family at, services will also be live-streamed for those unable to attend.

Wish I was there this evening ! Thank you Sheri for setting up the link means a lot!!!Blessed to have Uncle Fred to be a part of my life . He was my Favorite Uncle!!!He always called me Joel David and took time to talk to me and fish with me and got to hunt deer and rabbit with him . I love the bond he had with Papaw Gene Livingood they were close. When Papaw got serious Uncle Fred would make him laugh . No tighter bond than a brothers bond . Uncle Fred and a bunch of us would play Rook and he wouldn’t take it serious cracked me up !!!. What I liked and will miss most of all is the talks we had when I was got going to EKU talked about our relationship with God , the family and taught me to make good decisions . He was Modern day Barnabas to me. Love you Uncle Fred not the same with out but glad you are home now. Truly Man of God !!!

Bro Fred was very important in my young life. He was a great example. When my Dad died, he ministered to me in ways that gave me hope and gave me peace and gave me strength. One Sunday he took me aside and said profoundly “It’s time to put the pants on!” And I did! Right place right time. He was a wonderful mentor and he showed me real passion for Jesus and for people. I will forever be filled with gratitude. He also was a REAL Nut and it was a joy to be around him. All my love to brothers, Frances and family. Paul Blair

Waco was the first church I went too. I always remember Brother Fred standing at the door with a friendly smile that was always inviting. 20 plus years later my own daughter, Makenzie, spent many Sundays there. Christmas plays and bible school. And always there was Brother Fred with his inviting kind smile. Fred and Carlene really were the sweetest people I knew. I know now both of them will be much missed. However, what a joy it is to know they are rejoicing in heaven together.

Always with words of encouragement through the hard times and such a thoughtful man. He was a delight to watch on the ballfield, always encouraging and laughing. Fred was one of our favorite people and I'm sure he will be so missed by friends and family. Carlene and Fred are together again and with their Savior eternally. Rest in Peace, Fred. You were so loved.
