  1. To the Langner Family,
    My prayers will be with all of you during the days ahead. Papa, as we lovingly called him, will always be one of the sweetest, kindest and most loving people on this planet. He adored his family more than anything in the world, and I’m sure loving and awaiting arms are there to welcome him to The Other Side. Sending lots of love and prayers, June

  2. So sorry for your lost. He was such
    a pleasure when I worked at masoniccare. Xoxo always a great humor about him.

  3. I am very sorry for your loss. Your Mom and Dad were very special people. May your Dad Rest In Peace. I still remember you having ducks in your yard and thought that was so much fun running after them!😊

  4. To the children and grandchildren of Bob.. my siblings and I are so sad to read of Bob’s passing. Bob and I stayed in touch over the yrs and enjoyed each other’s family’s stories. His mom..Mary was like a sister to my mom Evelyn..although they were first cousins and many times lived together in both Fort Covington NY and here…Bob was always with them for his early years and my parents were very fond of him….he was a really nice person. He never stopped missing his wife who was taken so young and now they are reunited….along with their son Lawrence. Truly a man who saw the best in everyone.

  5. To the Family of Robert Langner,
    My Condolences to the whole Langner family. I remember Bob and his family coming to visit my parents Frederick Conrad Langner and Janis Langner in Torrington, CT when I was a little boy. I do remember playing with all of Bob’s sons during their visits and we had such a good time. I received a special note from Bob when my father died in 2010. Although I didn’t know him that well it meant a lot to me and I just knew he was another wonderful Langner gentleman. May he rest in peace.
