Reed Vernon Langlois Obituary
1932 ~ 2018
Reed Vernon Langlois, devoted and beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away March 9, 2018 in Provo, Utah at the age of 85.
Reed was born September 9, 1932 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Ruth Chamberlain Langlois and Charles Vernon Langlois. He met his sweetheart, Suzanne Woods, at a church dance and they married on September 4, 1956 in the LDS Los Angeles Temple. They spent the next 61 years together lighting up dance floors across the world.
An intellectual giant, Reed graduated with a degree in accounting from Brigham Young University in June 1953. He served as an officer in the U.S. Navy from 1953 to 1956. He obtained a Master of Business Administration degree from Harvard Business School in 1958 and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of San Diego School of Law in 1970. Reed worked in family and bankruptcy law and was a practicing attorney at the time of his death.
Reed was an active member of the LDS Church all his life filling many ward and stake positions including that of bishop and member of the stake presidency. He was a faithful temple worker for over 40 years. He and Suzanne served as temple missionaries in the Lima Peru Temple from May 2010 to April 2012. Following his missionary service, he continued to utilize his Spanish language skills in his temple service.
Reed approached life like a grand adventure. With Suzanne, he traveled the globe and together they hiked the ruins of Machu Picchu, swam with dolphins in Hawaii, and marveled at the pyramids in Egypt. His favorite journey was to the Holy Land to walk where Jesus walked.
Reed never met a person he didn't like and was genuinely interested in those around him. He will be remembered as a remarkably positive man, a voracious reader, lifelong learner, someone who never missed a family event, and a true disciple of Jesus Christ.
Reed is survived by his wife Suzanne, his six children, Mark Langlois of Colorado, Ted Langlois of Arizona, Doug Langlois of California, Laurie Denning of South Jordan, Matthew Langlois of Payson, and Heather Lindquist of California, 29 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his siblings Larry Langlois of North Salt Lake, Tom Langlois of Salt Lake, and Sharon Langlois of Sandy.
Reed will be honored in a chapel service Thursday, March 15, 2018 at the LDS Meetinghouse on 127 East 3200 North, Lehi, Utah 84043. At 9:30 AM there will be a celebration of life reception followed by 11:00 AM funeral services. www.broomheadfuneralhome.com
