Larry Dean Langley

Scottsdale - Larry Dean Langley passed away on Feb. 24, 2018 in Scottsdale, AZ. following a month long battle against a rare form of cancer. He was born in Tulsa, OK, on Feb. 7, 1942 to L.J. "Shorty" and Lucille (Roschewski) Langley. He graduated from Oklahoma State University and moved to Northern California in the mid-'60s where he lived for 40 years. After receiving his law degree from the University of San Francisco in 1973, Larry enjoyed his profession as a trial attorney and was honored with many distinguished legal awards throughout his career. He and his wife, Kathy, moved to Scottsdale in 2004 where they opened their law practice, Langley Law Firm.

Larry had a passion for big band music which began in high school. He played saxophone in the Shadow Lake Eight band to work his way through college and his love for music continued to the present as he played in the North Ridge Community Church orchestra and founded and led the Terravita Band and Forever Young Orchestra in Scottsdale.

Larry lived life to the fullest with a smile on his face every day and love in his heart. He was humble and kind to everyone he met and was loved and respected by all. His passions were his devotion to God, his wife, Kathy, and their life together, his accomplished children, family, friends, golf, tennis and music.

Larry is survived by his wife of 21 years and partner in law, life and love, Kathy (Bernard) Langley; daughter, Lisa (Langley) Costello; son, Mark Langley and his partner, Theresa Willard; daughter, Dr. Kathryn (Langley) Hughes and her husband, Peter Hughes; and granddaughter, Emily Costello. He is also survived by his sister Margaret (Langley) Butler; sister in-law Julie and husband Ben Romero; brother-in-law Steve and wife Sandi Bernard; and his former spouse Ann (Kennedy) Langley, plus many nieces, nephews and cousins.

The Memorial Service will be held Sat., Mar. 24, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at North Ridge Community Church in Cave Creek, AZ. Donations to Hospice of the Valley or HopeKids, Inc. would be appreciated in lieu of flowers.
