ForeverMissed
Glenn Alan Langner, the most incredible man to walk the face of this earth besides Jesus Christ himself, went to his permanent home in Heaven on Sunday, November 1, 2020, after a brief battle with malignant bladder cancer.  He was surrounded by his loving family at the time of his homegoing.  He was greeted by his precious parents, Clyde B. Langner, Sr and Marian W. Langner; special friends, Tommy and Cynthia Price, as well as many others who had gone on before.

He left behind on this earth his helpmeet and adoring wife, Susan Danielle (Blaney) Langner whom he married in 1991.  Together they had two beautiful daughters: Susan Elizabeth and Laura Christina.  He had three additional children from a prior marriage: Sabrina Ann (John) Clauser, Shanna Melissa Cabe from Birmingham, AL; and Glenn Alan Langner II from Montgomery, AL.  He had two beautiful granddaughters: Erin Nicole and Jolean Elizabeth Cabe; along with three grand furpuppies who knew him as Grumpy.  He is further survived by brothers: Ben (Nancy) and Steve (Lisa), and a sister: Cindy (Mike) Culpepper.  There are many nieces and a nephew; as well as many other extended family and friends who are saddened to have lost Glenn’s earthly presence – many who will rejoice to see him again in Heaven when they go home. 

Glenn spent his life on earth loving his family fiercely and serving his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ just as fiercely with a servant’s heart.  He served churches as Sr. Pastor in Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia, and as youth minister and single’s minister in Alabama.

Glenn’s Celebration of Life service was held on November 5, 2020 at his earthly home at 223 Big Rock Drive, Calera, AL 35040, and was attended by immediate family.  Rev. Randy DeBrabant officiated, with special friends Jimmy and Betty Friday bringing special music to comfort all.  W. E. Lusain Mortuary attended to his earthly remains.

Glenn is more than my friend and he will be missed as much as anyone that I have known. I first met him in 1958 as my grandparents were building a house behind the Langners. In 1963 when I moved to the neighborhood we became special friends developing a love of sports and competition that lasted a life time. Unfortunately he was better at almost everything we did and I always came up short unless it was a foot race and he was too smart to let me have many of those victories. But in everything else I kept trying fruitlessly including our last basketball games in 2016. He truly enjoyed beating me at everything we did. He was also a big part of my memory as he remembered so much more than me. I will so miss the things that he could tell me about our times together.

He was truly the finest man I will ever know and I will sorely miss our conversations and lunches that we had begun prior to this terrible time we call 2020. A time that has taken so much away from all of us.

Finally, I would like to add that in the race that counted, he has completed it and heard his Lord and Savior say "Well done, Glenn, well done". Just had to beat me one last time...

Much love, my brother.
