Walter “James” Langley, passed from this world on Thursday, August 29, 2019 and began his eternal rest at the age of 89. A memorial service will be held at 10:30am on Tuesday, September 3, 2019. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation.
James’s long full and productive life began on May 21, 1930 in Glencoe, Oklahoma where he was the oldest of four children born to Earnest and Viola Langley. As a young boy he learned the value of work and family, as he always cared for his sisters and was always busy. An early work ethic that he learned during the depression years served him well through life.
On March 14, 1949 James married Clara O’Dene Swisher and thus began a wonderful journey of love and family that would begin in Stillwater, but it would be Ponca City that would become their lifelong home for some fifty-four years. James’ working career included working for Meadow Gold and Mid-West Dairies in Stillwater, Okmulgee, Tulsa and finally Ponca City. It was in Ponca City that James took the initiative to become an entrepreneur. He owned and operated Long’s Conoco on north first street for several years. However, most everyone knew James for his business on south Pine, Auto Safety Center, which he owned and operated with his son, Mark. Everyone knew two things about James and his business, no one would work harder and no one was fairer and more honest. Even after retiring from Auto Safety Center, James kept busy with his rental property. Everyone who knew James understood that staying busy was in his DNA.
James will be remembered as a wonderful husband, a caring father, a loving grandfather and great grandfather. Their marriage produced four children, Linda, Nancy, Martha and Mark. Family was always very important to James. Family gatherings were always one of the highlights of his life. His favorite time was spent on his small and rural getaway “Our Place” This is where he found peace, raising gardens, mowing on his tractor and preparing for those family gatherings, and the more family that showed up the better. Two catch phrases that James always said that shows his genuine love for family and friends, “what’s your hurry” as you were getting ready to leave and “see you more later” as if to say, come back soon. James was always, a man of integrity and humility, two qualities that he possessed in abundance.
James is proceeded in death by his parents, his loving wife of 69 years and one sister, Thelma Madison.
He is survived by his five children, Linda and (Mike) Culver, Nancy (Gary) Watters, Martha (Matt) Cremers, Mark (Sandra) Langley, Suzy (Jim) Pascal. James is also survived by 16 grandchildren and 29 great-grandchildren; two sisters, Elvina Cox of Jones, Oklahoma and Velta Benson of Catoosa, Oklahoma as well as numerous nephews and nieces.
