This is a very sad moment for us, Livingston became part of our lives when we met at a mini church in Hawaii. He was like a little brother to me and a wonderful uncle yo my oldest daughter Nadlan. He was always full of life, playful and very kind hearted. Soon after he bright Mayra into our lives who is very special, loving and caring. I have wonderful memories of them both and their beautiful family. I can’t express with words how sad I really feel to know that Livingston is not here with us, but I have the hope that we will see him again in heaven. May God continue to bless this beautiful and loving family always. You will be missed.

My heart aches for the great loss to this amazing family. There are not enough words to say what you, Livingston, meant to your Ohana near and far. I only met you a few times, but I know from Mayra and your beautiful children how much you meant to them. I know you are free of pain and watching over your family from up above. Thank you for your service to our nation, may God keep you by his side. Until we meet again!

Sending aloha and deepest condolences to the Hickling family -- Mayra, Kaleb, Miranda, Liv, Rocky, his mom and dad and other family. It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this as we have only good memories of living next to you folks as neighbors for well over 10 years on Halekāpiʻo Street in Waipahū. Livingston always made time to touch base with people even though he was so busy and enjoyed talking story with him when we did. We miss him and you folks in the neighborhood dearly. He was a good person who had a deep love for his family, his community, his country and for the world and this planet Earth in general. We believe he is serving a greater good for all and we can take comfort in that. For his children who we've seen grown from little infants to respectful, caring young people, we ask that you become outstanding citizens and caretakers of this planet and its people and to make your dad so very proud of you and to remember he will always be with you in your memories and will always be watching over you in your challenges and accomplishments. Be brave and do good the best that you can for your mom, for your grandma and grandpa but especially to honor your dad. Onaona i ka hala me ka lehua. Fragrant is the pandanus and lehua. Aloha nō.

Your Halekāpiʻo ʻohana @ 1062

It’s hard to chose just one memory. I’ve known Uncle Livingston almost my entire life. He always had the biggest smile on his face every time I seen him, he always gave me the warmest hug and made me laugh. I was a really shy kid and he’d help me open up to go to Sunday school every Sunday by being the friendly, funny, loving ball of joy he was. He was one of very few men who never made me uncomfortable. He touched many lives, including mine. I’ll miss him forever.

Aloha Hickling Ohana,

Man, write about Livingston? Where do I start? LOL. I used to go to Inspire Church and there is where I met this wonderful family. Livingston and Mayra were (are) the most beautiful couple--so loving and so in love. Their kids were (are) super adorable. My kids loved playing with them. Livingston was always a gem but he shined the most when he helped me in my often and low times. I couldn't have gotten through the day without seeing Jesus working through someone like Livingston. I loved his always pleasant demeanor, servant heart and positive attitude. I could easily see why he had the happiest wife and kids. Thank You, God, for creating him, allowing Livingston 41 amazing, impactful years here, and blessing so many with wonderful memories and lasting legacy!

His genuine greetings and aloha spirit will be missed. I remember LTC Hickling as an eager, young Lieutenant in Baghdad and an astute, mature Major in Hawaii. Heartfelt condolences to his ohana from my ohana. A hui hou, LTC Hickling. Aloha.

My sincere condolences to the Hickling Ohana.

To my friend, Hickling (man how you hated when I would say Livingston) - I met you when we we're LTs in the 2-299th IN (KOA) and deployed to OIF III. You were always mission first and a great PL to the scouts. Will never forget you my brother, nor the good times we shared at home and abroad.

Rest in peace my fellow brother in arms!

Ahui Hou,
