John was born on April 8, 1955, to John C. and Rose Mary C. (Bourg) Langdon in Hastings, NE. John graduated from Hastings High School with the class of 1973. On August 14, 1976, he married Hope Schlueter in Byron, NE. They were blessed with two children: Melinda and Lisa.

During his lifetime he worked for Built Rite and Carmichael’s Construction. Most recently he retired from the Hastings Street Department after working there for over 28 years. You might have also seen him working at the South Gas N’ Shop where he enjoyed talking to all of the customers as they stopped by.

John loved many sports. In his younger years, he played baseball and continued to enjoy playing and umpiring softball for many years. He was also an avid golfer and was admired for being a part of the “Dream Team” at Southern Hills Golf Course. He bowled and traveled many times out-of-state for National Bowling. He cherished the time when he went turkey hunting with his grandson, Ryker, and hunting with his family at “Deer Camp”. After his retirement, he was known for his woodworking skills where he built many wood products for family and friends.

John was preceded in death by his parents; father-in-law, Marvin Schlueter; and brother-in-law, Jim Rempe.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife, Hope; children, Melinda (Travis) Sturgill of Grand Island and Lisa (Eric) Wheeler of Hastings; grandchildren, Ryker, Hynlee, Colbie, and Cooper; his siblings, Jan Rempe, Julie (Alan) Meyer, Jim Langdon, Jeff (Michelle) Langdon, Jo (Bill) Cline, Jeri (Curt) Manske, Jackie (Eric) Moline and Jenny Langdon; mother-in-law, Henrietta Schlueter; sisters and brothers-in-law, Varena (Gaylen) Kloepper, Dan (Karmen) Schlueter and Phillip Schlueter; and many nieces and nephews.
