Robert J. Langhamer

Born: August 1, 1930; in Chicago, IL

Died: July 7, 2018; in Cary, IL

Robert "Bob" Langhamer passed away at home on July 7, 2018.

He was born at home in Chicago, IL on August 1, 1930 where he lived until 1961 when he moved his family to Cary, IL. A first generation computer programmer for Uarco, Inc., Bob at age 18 began working in Uarco's mail room in Chicago. He was educated by IBM & Honeywell & became Lead Programmer & Technical Specialist among other titles & positions. He retired after 45 years with the same firm. Always a techie, Bob had recently purchased a smart phone, began texting & also maneuvered his way through his smart TV to watch movies on Amazon Prime. Bob & his wife Kay enjoyed playing golf since 1972 & were long-time members of Cary Country Club.

In his later years, you could find him tuned into the professional golf tournaments on television every weekend. In the 1960s he & close friends served as auxiliary policemen on the Cary Police Department; a rewarding experience. A quiet man who was a true homebody, Bob enjoyed the home he made for himself & his family in Cary & he seemed to prefer sitting at his computer or on his LaZ-Boy watching his programs to any place else. His keen sense of humor kept everyone in stitches but you had to listen carefully as he threw out his quips in hushed comments. An avid woodworker for many years, Bob made many pieces of furniture for his family that are cherished gifts.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Kay (Catherine) Langhamer; his son, Keith Langhamer; his brother, Joe Langhamer; and sister, Sylvia Dagenais; and his parents, Adolf & Mary Langhamer.

Bob is survived by his daughters, Renee (Darren) Jones & Cathy (Tim) Porter; his daughter-in-law, Amy Langhamer; grandchildren, Jason (Allie) Porter, Kyra (Tom) Tillman, Gina Jones, Melissa (Paul) Williamson, Shana Jones, Jenna (Randy) Freeman & Kaitlyn Langhamer. His great-grandchildren, Ben Porter, Reagan & Killian Tillman, Chloe & Lily Unger, Karl, McKaylee & Rowdy Williamson, Brenna, Jordan & Lincoln Freeman were recipients of his big-hearted love. He is sorely missed & loved by all of his family that includes beloved nieces & nephews, sisters-in-law & brother-in-law & dear friends who are part of the family.

Visitation for Bob will take place Friday, July 13, 2018 beginning at 10:00 AM and concluding with a Memorial Service at 12:00 Noon at the Kahle-Moore Funeral Home, 403 Silver Lake Rd., Cary.

In lieu of flowers, memorials would be appreciated to the Cary Firefighters Association.
