Eugene Henry Langenkamp, 79, of Yorkshire, passed away at 7:00 a.m. April 1, 2014, at Briarwood Manor, Coldwater.
He was born on March 12, 1935, in Yorkshire, to Frank and Rose (Borchers) Langenkamp. On Dec. 22, 1993, he married Connie Burke, who survives.
Gene is also survived by his ten children, Sharon and Bob Hibner, Coldwater; Joyce and Tony Bornhorst, Fort Loramie; Sandy and Brad Garmann, Minster; David and Jeannie Langenkamp Caramel, IN; Phyllis and Chuck Kremer, Minster; Jim and Marci Langenkamp, Russia; Susan Flamm, Troy; Tom and Faith Langenkamp, Springboro; Debra Langenkamp, Silver Spring, MD, and Jill and Tim York Russia; six siblings, Juanita Brandewie, Marlene Bohman Norma and Orville Bohman, Barbara and Harold Suchland, Janet and Mike Suchland, and Karen and Gary Meyer, two sisters-in-law, Theresa and Marianne Langenkamp, a brother-in-law, Hubert Magoteaux; his first wife, Clara Kite, New Bremen; 35 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren; two step-children Libbie and Dean Penman, Buffalo, NY; and Rob and Stacey Byers, Minster; and six step-grandchildren.
Deceased are his stepfather, Werner; two brothers Paul and Jerry, a sister and her husband, Rosalie and Ralph Wendel; and two brothers-in-law, Gene Brandewie and Fred Bohman.
Gene was a farmer and established Gene Langenkamp Sales & Service. He was a proud member of the Goat Farmer's in Yorkshire, the Knights of Columbus, Knights of St. John, and the Holy Men's Sodality.
Gene's family would like to invite all relatives and friends to his Funeral Mass at 10:30 AM on Saturday, April 5th at St. Michaels Catholic Church in Ft. Loramie; Reverend Steven Shoup officiating. In addition, all are welcome to join Gene's family for fellowship and camaraderie at a Celebration of Life luncheon to be held at Minster Knights of Columbus beginning at noon.
In lieu of flowers and gifts, contributions can be made to State of the Heart Hospice Care or charity of your choice. Condolences may be left at hogenkampfh.com.
Always the joker, perhaps it is fitting that Gene's departure occurred on April Fools' Day, a lasting reminder that he was a man who enjoyed humor and a good laugh.
