Tom’s life centered around his family. He was a devoted husband and father. He was never happier than when spending time with his grandchildren. He was a freelance writer and also enjoyed photography, collecting odd music, and he enjoyed all things from the world of Star Trek.
He was preceded in death by his parents, David H. Langenback and Mary H. Anderson and his beloved Mom-in-law, Nancy Taylor. Left behind to celebrate his life are his wife Tami, daughters Wendi Langenback and Stayci Langenback and granddaughter Mollie E. Langenback, all of the home, daughter Nancy Hughes and husband Christopher and grandson Ein Hughes of Jacksonville, daughter Merilynn R. “Mollie” Shreffler and husband Andrew and grandson Michael Shreffler of Springfield, son David Langenback of Tulsa OK, brother Edward Langenback of Cherokee Village and sisters Holly Hawkins and husband Martin of Tulsa OK, Mary Langenback of Albuquerque NM, Wendy Abbeduto and husband Michael of Pryor OK, and a host of other relatives and friends.
