Roger Olen Langford

In the early morning of Saturday, May 30, 2015, Roger Olen Langford left this world after a long, courageous battle with cancer to join his wife Mariana for eternity in our heavenly Father’s home.

He worked in Odessa, Seminole, and Monahans for the Coca-Cola Company from 1966 until his retirement in 1996.

After his retirement, Roger enjoyed volunteering and serving VFW Post 4372 of Odessa, Texas.  He was the Commander of the Honor Guard and took great pride in ensuring our men and women who served our country were given a proper military funeral.  One of the highlights of his service as Commander of the Honor Guard was when he received a Challenge Coin from the Secretary of the Army, Les Brown-Lee, for a funeral done for a young soldier killed in Iraq.  Roger was the Commander of VFW Post 4372 from 2005-2010.  In 2008, he traveled to Washington, D. C. to receive the honor of VFW Commander of the year.

The family would like to take this opportunity to say a very special thank you to Midland Hospice, Sharon Kenyon, Angel Castro, Rick and Cindy Thornhill, and many other family members and friends who supported us during this difficult time.
