Robert H. Livingston

Director, Writer
( d. Jan 04, 2015 ) Male

A force of nature, a complicated and charming man with a big personality and multiple talents. Theatrical director and gifted craftsman. Owner of The Craftsmen of New York, he custom-built beautiful and elegant kitchens, libraries, and entertainment centers for New Yorkers since 1963. As Adaptor and Director of the off-Broadway show, The Me Nobody Knows, he received two Tony nominations, and went on to conceive, adapt, and direct Taking My Turn, which received a Drama Desk nomination for the Best Musical of 1984. For television, he directed "All in the Family" and the first episodes of Maude. Bob was the "Mayor" of West 39th Street, where his business is located; the "Father" of his residential building where he served on the Board for more than 30 years; an incredibly loyal and endearing friend; and a mentor and source of inspiration to many. Ruth, Bob's wife of 27 years, adored him, as did nephew Adam and dear friends Mike and Kathryn, among others. We miss his spirit and high energy profoundly.
