It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of my loving husband, Robert Jonathan Langston. Bob will be greatly missed. I hardly know how to go forward without my best friend and love of my life.

A retired sales manager and sales trainer, Bob loved fishing with his son and granddaughter, spending time with his family, wood working and tinkering in his garage, taking care of his vegetable garden and lawn, cooking gourmet meals, meeting with his Veterans PTSD Group, and being a member of Clinton Art Gallery.
