My deepest condolences to the Trentalange family. Mickey was a great guy - a real gentleman. Who could ever forget that wonderful smile! He is one of the last of an era - Buddy Vaughn - Goldie - my father in law Joe Ranaudo. My brother, Brian Ladden, called me this morning to tell me about Mickey. Brian (who now teaches music in the Waterbury school system) took lessons at Lange's, I took lessons from Dan Bergantino at Mickey's & John's.
Mickey contributed so much to music in the Waterbury & greater Connecticut area. It was an honor and a privilege to know him. May God grant him eternal rest.

A great role model for all of us. Always had a smile. And a musical father for all of us who gained careers in the music business.
Mickey was a family friend for years. With his passing, the music has stopped. He was the sound of music for Waterbury.
Mickey kept the beautiful music alive by teaching the next generation of musicians.
We will never forget you.
Dear Aunt Rosemary, Mark, Stephen, Donna, Michael and Paul,
Our deepest sympathy to all of you and your families. Uncle Mickey Lange was a dear uncle and an inspiration to all of us.
We mourn his loss and all that he symbolized to our family and our country. We remember his music as well as the stories about his extraordinary WWII service.
May he rest in peace. There's no doubt he'll conduct beautiful music for the glory of God.
Thank you Mr. Trentalang for all that you've given to music, to Waterbury, and for trying your best to teach me to play the guitar. My most sincere condolences to your family.
