David Allen Langner Obituary
TUSCALOOSA | Devoted husband, father and grandfather, David Allen Langner, 62, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, passed away on Saturday, April 26, 2014.
Born November 8, 1951, to the late Frances and Charlie Langner of Florala, Alabama, David graduated from Woodlawn High School in Birmingham in 1970 and attended Auburn University on a football scholarship from 1971 until 1974. In 1975, David was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs and the Birmingham Vulcans.
Beloved by his family and friends, David is survived by his wife, Toni; son, Brad Langner (Laura); stepson, Andy Lynn (Stephanie); stepdaughter, Ashley King (TR); brother, Chuck Langner (Zoe); two grandchildren, Daylon and Charleigh Lynn; aunt, Ann Langner and numerous loving cousins, nieces and nephews.
David became an Auburn football legend following the 1972 Iron Bowl when he returned two blocked punts for touchdowns and a 17-16 win over Alabama. After a forty year career in the automobile industry, David retired from Tuscaloosa Hyundai in October 2013. David's warmth, devotion and generosity was his trademark. His life's passions included football, fishing and golf, but most of all helping others.
A celebration of his life will be held on Friday, May 2, at 2 p.m. at the home of his dear friends Babs and Michael Anderson, 508 Waterford Place, Tuscaloosa, 35406. Dr. Buddy Thorne, his closest friend will officiate.
