Obituary for Gary W. Langan
Langan, Gary W.
Gary Walter Langan, 75, passed away on December 16, 2017. He was born on September 22, 1942 and was the beloved son of the late Ruth and Walter Langan.
Gary is survived by his beautiful and caring wife of 52 years Marilyn Langan. He was the loving father to his three children: David (Andrea), Bonnie (Raymond) and Keith (Tracy). He was blessed to have 10 grandchildren: Bryan, Megan, Taylor, Bridget, Kylee, Ray, Annie, Zach, Emerson, and Kinley. He would light up every time the kids entered the room. He is also survived by his two younger siblings, Paul (Patty) and Diane (Tom), and his sister-in-law Nancy Hampson. He was “Uncle Gary” to his nieces and nephews and his kind and giving spirit brought many friends into his life that he cherished dearly.
Gary graduated from Hofstra University and served proudly in the Marines. He spent 26 years as a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He was very proud to be part of the organized crime unit. He cherished the relationships with his partners and colleagues and looked forward to the many “lunches” with the guys from the squad.
Gary was always seen at all of the kids’ sports, he was the man in the stands for every game. He and Marilyn spent 20+ years raising their children in Medford, NJ where they also developed many friendships that they still cherish today.
Family and friends meant the world to Gary. Harvey Cedars in LBI was a central spot where all could come and share a million laughs as they watched the sunset from the deck. There is no place like 80th Street. And, of course, seeing Grandpa make Mickey Mouse waffles in the morning was the highlight to most weekends.
Family and friends may visit the Bradley Funeral Home this Thursday, December 21, from 5:00-8:00 PM or Friday, December 22, from 9:45-10:45 AM at St. Thomas More Church. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated starting at 11:00 AM. A luncheon for family and close friends will follow. As a former Marine, Gary always supported the armed services.
