Funeral Arrangements for Nick Livingstone…


August 05, 2014

Weaver Funeral Homes – Trenton West Chapel, Ontario  Service details  here!

A place to post memories, stories and photos to share is on the Weaver funeral home site.

Also, consecon.ca our website has a History Page and you have been invited to share stories and images of Nick’s connection with Consecon and the renovation and development of the Cascades mill.

A bigger than life character, with a generous heart, Nick provided his garage at the Cascades Mill every year for decorating the C.A.R.A. float in the Consecon Santa Clause parade every year.

Nick also generously donated his employee’s time to install the original banner brackets for Consecon Banner Painting Festival in order that we might enjoy them.

Consecon Day,  Nick was a good sport,  here at Cascades Friday morning he was reminiscing about  getting “knocked around” in the dunk tank, how hard it was and that he had done it over the years and now he was leaving that to others now!!!


 

 

 

Nick Livingstone has died…


August 04, 2014

Nick Livingstone, a larger than life character around Consecon, died suddenly at his home on Sunday, August 3rd, from a massive heart attack. Nick, a Master Electrician, owned and operated Livingstone Construction and the the Consecon Mill property known as Cascades.  On behalf of C.A.R.A., and the village of Consecon we send our deepest condolences to Nick’s wife Linda and his children.  This wonderful big character will be missed around here. ​Nick’s legacy in Consecon was bringing new life to the village by purchasing the Consecon Grist Mill, the Seed Mill and two houses along the water’s edge with a vision for a centre of lively activity.  After a fire he rebuilt the mill into apartment units, a pub & grill with a dance floor and a deck to enjoy the water.  And completed one of the houses as a commercial/residential space.  He was thrilled when the final touch, to have art was realized when Janet B Gallery & Studios arrived in 2012 also bringing yoga and inviting more artists so in 2013 he converted the 123 year old home into a loft apartment and studio, home to the Goddess Fab Jewelery Design Studio. Originally, Nick operated Cascades Pub & Grill with his former wife Patti.  He returned to work at Livingstone Construction full time and in 2010 Rick and Deanna Furber carried on the tradition and are celebrating their 4th anniversary as proprietors of the Cascades Pub & Grill.
