B. B. Livers, son of Isaac and Alice (Cochran) Livers, was born on September 3, 1946 in Tahlequah, Oklahoma and departed this life to be with our Lord on Sunday, October 11, 2020 in Tulsa, Oklahoma at 74 years of age.
BB was a strong, hardworking man and provider. He worked as a heavy machine operator for Adair County District 1 for over 25 years. It’s been said several times to his family that BB was one of the best road grader operators around. Most days after work he would be found in his garage working on vehicles. He was a trusted mechanic to many people. His family has many fond memories of stories, laughs, joking and carrying on with all those who came by to visit and lend him a helping hand.
When BB’s health permitted some of his hobbies included, car races, hunting & fishing with his brothers and pitching horseshoes. Another favorite past time for him was watching all his kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews playing ball games. He also enjoyed gospel singings, sitting around visiting, and backroad drives. BB was very strong in his faith and was a long time member of Salem Baptist Church, and upon moving several years back became a member at Mulberry Tree Baptist Church.
He was preceded in death by his wife of over 40 years: Thelma (England) Livers, parents: Isaac and Alice Livers, brother: Jimmie Ray Livers, daughter: Charlene England, grandson: Thomas England and granddaughter: Melanie England, sisters-in-law: Pauline Livers and Darlene Livers.
