John R. ‘Jack’ Langlois Sr., 95, entertainer who sang at many local events

John R. “Jack” Langlois Sr. departed this life at 95 years after a brief hospital stay, Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, surrounded by his children. He joins his loving wife, Marie Annunziata Langlois.

Jack was born in Alabama and was the son of the late Henry and Lulan Rhodes Langlois. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Clement, Francis, James and Carl; sisters, Helene, Joan, and his twin, Kitty; as well as his son-in-law, Brian J. Sherry.

Leaving Alabama and moving to Norfolk for work at NARF, our dad entertained and sang at many local events, including a live radio show on WRVC.

Jack and Marie met and married and raised their seven children in Virginia Beach. They were founding members of St. Pius X Catholic Church. Jack is survived by his daughters, Camella Pulliam (Steve), Teresa Davis (Roland), Kathryn Danner (Wayne), Paulette Culp (Jamie), Annette Sherry, Christine Santoni (Tom) and their son, John R. Langlois Jr.; 14 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren; and many extended family members.

The family wishes to thank all those who contributed to dad’s care and helped keep him smiling, laughing and singing. We will all miss his subtle humor, wonderful songs and faithful examples of life.

A celebration of Jack’s life will be held at St. Pius X Catholic Church, 7800 Halprin Drive, Norfolk, Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018. Visitation will be held from 5 to 6 p.m., with a rosary from 6 to 6:30 p.m., followed by Mass at 6:30 p.m. A reception will follow services. Private interment will be held in St. Mary’s Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made to St. Pius X School.
