    Cub was a strong supporter and advocate for the Livingston Economic Development Council (LEDC) for many years. I am grateful for this and his friendship. He was one of the best.

    Cub Covington was one of the kindest and most caring gentleman I have ever known. He was always positive and upbeat, smiling his way through life’s challenges and good times. His bear hugs and gentle encouragement were classic Cub; he was all about bringing joy to all he encountered. Blessings on his beloved family.
