Death of Susan Williams’ father

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of Susan Williams’ father, Paul Lang. Susan works for Grace Communion Seminary and is married to Greg Williams (GCI-USA, Church Administration and Development director). Here is Paul’s obituary.  

Paul Richard LangPaul Richard Lang completed this life’s journey on March 5, 2015. He was born in Bismarck, North Dakota in 1933 and grew up on the family farm. Paul married Jennie Marie Mandigo in 1954. In 1978, after 24 years working the farm, the couple moved to Eugene, Oregon where they owned and operated P&J Tool Company until retirement.

Paul is survived by his wife Jennie (they were married for 60 years); three daughters, Debbie (Mark) Larson, Connie (Art) Cady, Susan (Greg) Williams; 11 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and siblings John Lang, Corine (Marvin) Hasson, Marilyn (Robert) Showalter. Paul was preceeded in death by his sisters Pauline Jackson, Maxine Gleason and Verna Schumaker.

The pillar of his family, Paul loved unconditionally, worked tirelessly, was quick with a smile and faithful to his Savior. His family share that faith and take comfort knowing they will be reunited one day.

  1. We missed you at the Prayer Retreat last month but we are so glad you got to spend that time with your father. What a blessing that was to him and to you. We and the congregation at Christian Family Fellowship in Seattle will be praying for you, your mom and all your family. The Lord will do a beautiful work in this time of your loss and grief.

    All blessing, peace and comfort in Him,
    Wayne & Patty Mitchell

  2. Dear Family,

    We are very saddened to hear about Paul’s passing away. Facing the reality of our temporal existence is never easy. To see our loved ones depart to be with the Lord always leaves a painful void behind. And yet, we are comforted by the assurance of eternal life. The time of the “Great Supper” draws ever nearer. Just think of the indescribable joy we will all experience when we are reunited with all our dear ones.

    May His love carry and comfort you.

    In Him,
    Santiago and Elke

  3. There is no greater blessing than having family with you when a loved one dies. Your Dad is in the Best of Hands. He has finished his course in this life. Knowing that we will all see our loved ones again is very comforting, but their loss leaves us with longing. Having the Lord there with each one of you helps in this part of your journey. Sixty years together for your Mother & Dad – a tribute to God being with them all these years!!

    God Be With You All!!
