Building Dedication Ceremony for Wilber L. Livingston
On January 28, 2013, Seminole Electric Cooperative (Seminole) hosted a building dedication ceremony for Wilber L. Livingston at its power plant, Seminole Generating Station, (SGS), in Palatka, Florida. At the event, Seminole named its Administration building the “Wilber L. Livingston Administration Building.”
Wilber dedicated 29 years of loyal service to Seminole starting in 1982. While Wilber began as an apprentice electrician, his hard work, passion, pursuit, and ever-evolving knowledge earned him the title of Senior Electrical and I&C Engineer.
Serving as a mentor and role model to his coworkers, Wilber’s enthusiasm and desire to support and serve will long endure as a legacy that will be felt throughout the next generation.
Wilber shall be remembered as a valued colleague and faithful friend, who earned the respect of those around him through his forthright demeanor, dedication, unwavering work ethic, and determination. A devoted husband, loving father, and proud grandfather, Wilber will be greatly missed for his humor and thoughtfulness.
In honor of Wilber, his friend and Seminole’s Director of Plant Operations, Brenda Atkins, presented his family with a Coin of Appreciation plaque recognizing the distinguished service provided by Wilber during his time at SGS. On Wilber’s behalf, his wife, Denise Livingston, accompanied by daughters Connie Martin, Brandy Stasiak, and granddaughter Emma Stasiak, accepted the plaque as a token of Seminole’s gratitude and remembrance of Wilber.
