Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Robert Lang announces his sudden passing on Thursday, December 11, 2014, at the age of 65 years.

Robert had a very adventurous life. He joined the U.S. Marine Corp. when he was 17 years old, did two tours of Vietnam, and left as a 20 year old Sgt. He came back to Canada and after a stint with the Canadian Airborne Regiment, he decided instead of fighting people, he wanted to save them. He spent 20 years as a Search and Rescue Technician (Canadian Armed Forces) saving hundreds of people from sinking ships to crashed airplanes. If you asked anyone who ever worked with him, they would tell you how great a leader and friend he was. After retirement, he spent his time as a Dad and Grandpa, a uniform he wore proudly. He will always be in our hearts and always remembered.

Robert is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Lorna; his children: Tammy Bonko of St. Albert, Tina (David) Ponce of Vancouver, Johnny (Claire) Lang of Victoria; grandchildren: Jake, Matthew and Kate Bonko, and James Lang; his mother, Ethel Lang; brothers: Bill, Ray, Tim and Michael Lang; sister, Myrna Lang; and his little buddy, “Max”.

He was predeceased by his father, Gordon Lang.

A Celebration of Robert’s Life will be held at 2:00 p.m., on Thursday, December 18, 2014 at Connelly-McKinley St. Albert Funeral Home, 9 Muir Drive, St. Albert.

Memorial donations in Robert’s name may be made to the Edmonton Humane Society, 13620-163 Street NW, Edmonton, Alberta, T5V 0B2.

In Loving Memory of
Robert Kenneth Lang
