Lang Gary John Lang went Home to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 17, 2013. He was born on June 23, 1955 in Natrona Heights, Pennsylvania to John Lang 1909-1975 and Margaret Pobicki Lang, 1915-1997. His father was born in Germany and his mother's family came from Bratislava, Czechoslovakia. His ethnic background helped to make him an accomplished cook. He was an avid gardener and had a large garden of fruits and vegetables. Surrounding the garden was a large flower garden attracting hummingbirds, bees and birds. He spent mowing and trimming the lawn until it looked like a golf course. A protective brother and caregiver to his brother Allen Lang, he possessed a strong work ethic and was self motivated and a hard worker. He graduated from Highland High School in 1973 and attended Penn State University
. He had a love of nature and animals and the outdoors and enjoyed the feeling of the wind in this face while riding his motorcycle, jeep and bike. Survived by his sister, Marion Lang Bernacki and husband, Walter S. Bernacki; brother, Allen J. Lang, with whom he made his home; nephews, Dr. Walter L. Bernacki, wife, Polly and children, Lauren and Walter, Dr. Brad L. Bernacki, wife, Kimberly, children, Haley, Benjamin and Alexis.
