April 14, 1947 - January 9, 2006

Don Langenburg, of Cape Coral, went home to be with the Lord on January 9, 2006. He was a man who set for all of us the finest example. He loved the Lord and demonstrated his faith and devotion every day of his life. He loved his wife, Diane, of 35 years, and based their loving marriage on faith and togetherness. She was the love of his life. He adored his children, Kiersten and Kurt, and referred to them as being his treasure. He was the most wonderful dad and the closeness of father and children was a special bond. His son-in-law Matt and daughter-in-law Gwen were very special to him and made him happy that his children had these important people in their lives. “Pop Pop” cherished his granddaughter, Sydney, and the affection and tenderness that they shared will surely live forever. His sister Patricia he constantly spoke of with love, respect and admiration. His niece Janell always had a special place in Don’s heart. He and his Aunt Louise shared a deep love and closeness. Don was a gentle man filled with love.

He grew up in New Jersey. He was a graduate of Paul Smith’s College. He served his country with the U.S. Navy, aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln (a nuclear submarine). For the last 24 years, Don was a faithful employee for AMS as a sales representative. He raised a beautiful family. He was a deacon in his church, and he set an example in the community of what a good and faithful servant is all about. Today, Don is in Heaven with the Lord and with his dearly loved parents and grandparents. Don lived his life for Jesus Christ and will be in heaven for all eternity. God bless him and keep him and we will all see him again someday.

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For you are with me;
Your rod and Your Staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. (Psalm 23)

In Loving Memory of
Donald Herman Langenburg
