Family-Placed Death Notice
LANGLEY, Jim REV. JIM A. LANGLEY "Think not of their passing but of the Glory of their Spirit." Rev. Jim A. Langley passed away peacefully on March 18, 2010 at the age of 82, with his two daughters by his side. A native Atlantan, Jim graduated from Boys High, Mercer University, and New Orleans Theological Seminary. Jim's life was defined by service to others. He served his country during WWII as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. He served congregations through his many ministries including First Baptist Church of Atlanta and First Baptist Church Riverdale. He served numerous veterans and police departments as chaplain, his greatest privilege being to serve as Chaplain for the 1st Infantry Division's 50th Anniversary D-Day Commemorative Ceremony in Normandy, France in 1994. Jim also served countless individuals and families through counseling. But no one was better served in life by Jim than his two daughters, to whom he served as a devoted, loving, supportive father. "Big Jim," as he was known, lifted up all those he served, and we are thankful for his life. Preceded in death by his parents, Jim and Annie Lou Langley, Jim leaves behind daughter and son in law, Susan and Mike Keeble of Jackson Georgia, grandson Michael John Kessler, daughter and son in law, Julia and Malcolm Butler of Savannah, and many enduring friends. Family visitation will be held at the Sherrell Wilson Mangham Funeral Home in Jackson, Georgia on Saturday, March 20th at 11 a.m., followed by a memorial service at 12:00 noon. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that remembrances be sent to Sacred Journey Hospice in McDonough, Georgia.
