Clifford Langlais Obituary

Grief is the price we pay for love. Clifford "Ron" Langlais age 75, adored father and grandfather ascended to the heavens on a beautiful Father's Day afternoon (Sunday June 15, 2014) after a fearless nine year fight with cancer. He was one of 16 children born to the late Edward and Lucy (Theriault) Langlais on December 5, 1938 in Caswell, Maine. Ron's family was important to him and was the center of his world. He was a father that you could always count on, easy to look up to and respect. Ron was a US Army veteran of the Vietnam War. A "true handyman" he was always called upon when someone needed help. He was a meat cutter by trade working in local grocery stores, but his true love was mowing lawns. After his retirement he pursued the love of mowing by having his own mowing business until he could no longer because of being stricken with cancer. He was a brave man, with a gentle heart that gave quiet guidance. His kind, loving soul will be forever missed. Ron leaves his devoted and caring wife of 53 years Bernadette (Ostroski) Langlais. He leaves three children, Michele Roy and her husband Daniel, Ron Langlais and his wife Lucy, Robin Raboin and her husband Jeffrey all of Bristol; and four grandchildren, Jenna and Carli Roy, Austin and Noah Langlais. Ron is also survived by one sister, Martha Lizotte Bristol, one brother, Yvon Langlais and his wife Beverly of Bristol and a special sister-in-law, Judie Ostroski of Bristol. Ron's life will be celebrated at a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 A.M. on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, at St. Stanislaus Church 510 West St, Bristol. Burial with military honors will follow in St. Joseph's Cemetery in Bristol. There are no calling hours. In lieu of flower, please do something nice for someone.
