Robert Fred Langford

July 21, 1931 – November 11, 2019
Bob Langford passed away on Remembrance Day, and will be fondly remembered. Bob was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and raised during the post-depression and war years in Wells, Quesnel and Prince George. He came from humble circumstances with an intelligent work ethic that saw him rise from a railroader, through the ranks of union offices to a labour relations career in the Provincial government, the Federal government and upper management of the mining industry. He is survived by his sons, their wives and his grandchildren: Ross, Dena, Arden and Owen; Rob, Vickie, Damon and Braden; his sister, Nancy (Garry); and his special friend, Rita. He began his work-life on the railroads, and all- things-railroads was his passion. He knew the most obscure facts regarding railways big and small, and his family will all remember travelling with him to find unique trains or remnants of abandoned railway lines all over the world. He will be fondly remembered any time a game of crib or canasta are played, though he has taken the bragging rights with him when he departed. As requested, there will be no public service, and in lieu of flowers, consider making a gift in his memory to the Canadian Railroad Historical Association. A full life well lived.
