Kenneth “Kenny” Langley, 73, died at his home in Union, OR surrounded by his family on Thursday, November 1, 2018.  A Celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

Kenneth Eugene was born in Ontario, OR June 30, 1945 to parents Harry and Mildred Langley.  Kenny was raised on a ranch in Lime, OR about 7 miles outside of Huntington, OR. He attended elementary school in Huntington and High School in Cambridge, ID where he graduated in 1963.

Kenny worked for the Union Pacific Railroad about 20 years and Idaho Northern and Pacific for an additional 17 years. He thoroughly enjoyed working for the Railroad doing rail work and he especially loved to start the engines up.

Kenny liked to fish, hunt and bowl. In fact, he was even a member of the Bowling league in Gresham, OR for a time. Kenny enjoyed fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Nearly 20 years ago Kenny bought some property in Union, OR.  He was able to put in a new home on that same property in 2014.

Memorable times in Kenny’s life included when his nephew Ethan was born.  At the time, Kenny was 55 and he told his niece Billisue for several months that Ethan would be born on his birthday and it turned out he was right, as Ethan was indeed born on his birthday June 30, 2000.  The following year was also special as he became a God Father to Debbra Ann Langley who was born July 24, 2001. Another significant time was when Kenny was baptized in 2010.

Kenny was always willing to help someone in need.  Even when he lended money,  he never asked for it back. He was a very loving and caring man.

Kenny was preceded in death by his parents Harry and Mildred Langley; brothers Donald and baby Langley; sisters Margie Ann, Carolee, Ruthy.

He is survived by his brothers Earl and Ivan; numerous nieces and nephews; Special boss and good friend Neil Cox.
