Bobby A. Langdon, of Oxford, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Oct. 19, 2019. He was 84.
Bobby is survived by his loving wife of 60 years Patsy Gail (Ewald), daughter Kimberly (Richard) Skalnek and son Robert Langdon; grandchildren Kellie (Brett), Ryan (Leah), and Trey; great-grandchildren Ava, Harlow, Brooks, and Georgia; sister Dawn Boucher; sister-in-laws Lorelei (Tim) Arthaud, Janet Bedford, Mary Ann Ewald and Laverne Langdon; many nieces and nephews; and his great grand dogs Lola and Tiberius.
Bobby was born Sept. 15, 1935 to Harry and Betty Langdon in Orchard Lake. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers Harry, Stanley, Jerry, and Kenny; sisters Bonnie, Myrna, Judy, and Faye; and his beloved grand dog Maxwell.
Bobby married his sweetheart Patsy in June 1959. He proudly served his country as a sergeant in the U.S. Army from 1959-65. Bobby retired from ITT Higbie in Rochester after 30 years of service. One of his passions was coaching little league baseball in Oxford. He coached his son Bob and his grandsons Ryan and Trey. He was an avid sports fan, especially University of Michigan football, and was affectionately called “Michigan Bob” and “Big Bob” by many. He enjoyed his daily morning coffee with “the guys” at Art and Dick’s Party Store. Bobby was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.
