We Remember

LANGIN, Ferguson Robert

It is with sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Ferguson Robert (Bob) Langin on May 1, 2015, in Kelowna. Bob, the son of Clifford and Rita Langin, was born in 1928 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is survived by his loving wife Geneva, his children Shaun (Sandra), Laurie (Brian), Greg (Nathalie), Geraldine (David), Grant (Laura), his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Bob also leaves his sister Marjorie Lindsay and brother Clifford (Jill), of Halifax and his cousin Margaret Mitchell (Ray). Sadly, Bob was predeceased by his first wife Isabella, son Bruce, brother Hugh and brother-in-law John Lindsay. A graduate of Dalhousie and Acadia Universities, Bob had a long and varied career in social work, community development and psychotherapy. His career took him from the Maritimes to the Canadian North and finally to Alberta before happily retiring with Geneva to his beloved “house on the hill” in West Kelowna. A memorial celebration will be held at Springfield Funeral Home in Kelowna on Friday, May 8, 2015 at 2 p.m. If desired, in lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the British Columbia Lung Association.
