One year on – Glyn Langton – a community figure remembered

In addition to the customary remembrance this day of our fallen heroes and injured, we take a moment to remember one of our own community members who passed on this day, one year ago.


Glyn Meredith Langton – December 8th, 1944 – November 11th, 2011


Today we remember much loved family man, keen sportsman and true gentleman Glyn Langton, who was taken from this world on Friday morning on 11th November 2011 after a short illness.


Glyn left behind his loving wife Yvonne, four children and twelve adoring grandchildren and our thoughts are with them on this day, the anniversary of his passing.


A keen sportsman, games player and outdoors type, 66 year old Glyn Langton whom lived at Clive Road in Balsall Common, built up a long list of friends down the years, including many at his beloved Berkswell Cricket Club, where he was a highly regarded and long serving member.

  1. Thank you for posting a remembrance of Dad.
    He is still much missed.
    Our lives will never be the same.
    Our thoughts are with all those who have lost loved ones this year.

    For the departed:
    May perpetual light shine upon them.
    May they rest in peace.

  2. Thank-you for the remembrance. I can hardly believe I have got through a whole year without him. My family and friends have made a difficult time bearable. I am very lucky. I hope others in a similar position have been as lucky.
