David Scott Lievsay (TJ) passed from the loving arms of his family into the ever-loving arms of his Heavenly Father on Wednesday, June 14, 2023.
TJ lived a full and vibrant 61 years, taking opportunities to connect deeply through unique intersections of life. He was born to Diane and Tom Lievsay on December 15, 1961, in Kansas City, Missouri, and grew up in California with his family.
He met Jesus as a young child, developing a servant’s heart like his Lord’s along the way.
TJ was a lover of learning and a lifelong student. He earned three degrees throughout his adulthood, the first of which brought him to Grand Canyon College in Phoenix, Arizona. Working while earning his degree, he met his sweet angel and the love of his life, Angie (Haymore) Lievsay. They were married for 33 beautiful years.
Though TJ’s life’s work was multicolored in profession, his love for his wife and three children, Parker, RuthAnne, and Dawson, was steady. TJ lived his life much like he gardened: he tended first to his God and his family. He cultivated adventure through his love for travel and culture. He nurtured his delights for art, language, and cuisine. And he harvested a life full of friendships and goodness and beauty.
Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Angie Haymore Lievsay; his children, Parker (Heather) Lievsay, RuthAnne (Mason) Kellar, and Dawson Lievsay; his three granddaughters, Lucy Brynn Lievsay, Sophia Scott Lievsay, and Lydie Lievsay Kellar; his mother, Diane Lievsay; and two brothers Dan (Sandy) Lievsay, and Deric Lievsay.
The family will receive friends on Friday, June 30, 2023, from 1:00 until 2:00 PM, with services following at 2:00 PM. All will be held at Reynolda Church of Winston-Salem. The family welcomes donations to IllumiNations Bible Translators (https://illuminations.bible) as a memorial to TJ’s life and an expression of his love for Jesus, the Word, and people of all nations.
Moody Funeral Services in Mount Airy is serving the family.
