Robert "Gerry" Gerald Lang
(January 25, 1934 - February 4, 2023)
Robert “Gerry” Gerald Lang passed away in Edmonton, Alberta on Saturday, February 4th, 2023.
Gerry was born in Coronation on January 25, 1934 to Maurice and Lottie Lang. He grew up on a farm near Talbot, Alberta. Gerry was a Jack of many trades. He worked on the rigs, for a telephone company, selling TVs, building radios, and could fix anything from TVs to vehicles, even if it had to be “Gerry-rigged”. Later on, he spent most of his time farming and driving school bus. His other passion and talent was playing the banjo that he first learned when he was about 13. With many different musicians and Adrianne by his side, Mr. Banjo spent a lot of time entertaining everyone at different venues across Alberta and Saskatchewan. They also travelled down to Arizona, where they spent a few winters enjoying the warmth and jamming at different parks.
He is survived by his wife Adrianne Flahr; his five children Barry (Deanne) Lang, Darrell Lang (Teny Allan), Rodney (Allisson) Lang, Cathy (Alban) McAdam, and James (Cindy) Lang; Adrianne’s children Dana (Holly) Hanna, Darcy (Mariette) Flahr, Darren (Laura) Meier, Tammy Flahr, and Tanya Rodak (Kevin Hooper); as well as twenty nine grandchildren and fourteen greatgrandchildren. He was predeceased by his first wife Lina Lang.
A Funeral Service was held at 1:00 p.m., Friday, February 10, 2023 at the Bawlf Community Center.
