Patrick J. Langan, C.P.A., 68, of Moosic and formerly of West Scranton, died Saturday at home.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born in Moosic on Feb. 28, 1946, he was the son of the late William and Helen Salmon Langan. After graduating from St. John the Evangelist High School in Pittston, he attended Bethel University in McKenzie, Tenn., where he earned a bachelor's degree in accounting. Later becoming a certified public accountant, he worked as the accountant for Hotel Jermyn in Scranton. For more than 25 years before falling ill, he was the owner and operator of Langan's Pub in West Scranton. An avid golfer, he was a Knight of Columbus and former member of Queen of Apostles Parish in Avoca.
Known as "Pat" to friends and "P.J." to family, he was a good listener and loyal friend, whose favorite expression was, "Just take one day at a time." He will be greatly missed.
His family would like to especially thank Dr. Robert W. Kaville for the tremendous care given to Pat throughout the years as a patient.
He is survived by his beloved sisters, Janet Langan, Moosic; and Mona Sheppard and husband, Robert, Clarks Summit; his loving companion of more than 40 years, Betty Eiden, Scranton; nieces, several cousins and several dear friends, including Helga Phau and Dorothy Spindler, both of Moosic.
He was also preceded in death by a sister, Erin Langan.
