Obituary for Albert Ray Langston

Albert Ray Langston, 67, passed away peacefully at his home on Sunday, April 14, 2019 after a 7 year brave and courageous battle with colon cancer.

A graveside service will be held Thursday at 1 PM in Pinewood Memorial Park with Rev. Lenny Waters officiating. The family will receive friends following the service at the cemetery.

Albert was born on July 14, 1951 in Wilmington, NC. Since early childhood, Albert had a great love for all animals and nature. He spent his early years at the local zoo helping to care for the animals. Albert graduated from New Hanover High School and began his 36 year professional career in the construction industry, but due to declining health was forced to retire.

Albert is proceeded in death by his best buddy and grandson Jesse Ray; step-son, Cj Adams; parents, Albert and Hazel Langston; and grandparents, Furney and Ella Howard.

He is survived by his wife, Sandy; brothers, Lynn of Shallotte and Wayne of Wilmington; sisters, Sandy Kinney and husband, Joel, of Newport, and Janet Odom and husband, Dempsey, of Leland; nephews, Allan and Matthew Langston; niece, Angie Langston; and special friends, Skinny Keny of Leland; Tyke Adams of Dover; and Mark Manwaring of Tennessee.

To honor Albert’s wishes, there will be no viewing or family night.

In lieu of flowers, Albert’s greatest enjoyment would be for you to take a child to the zoo, fishing, hunting, visit historical sites, the mountains, or the beach.

A heartfelt thank you to the staff of Vidant Home Health & Hospice for their professional and supportive care during Albert’s illness.
