Robert W Langley

October 25, 1966 — January 12, 2023

Robert W. Langley of Worcester, 56 passed away at home January 12th after a long, courageous battle with Multiple Myeloma.

Rob was born in Worcester the son of James Langley and Susan (Nowicki) Parmenter.  Besides Worcester, he resided in Oxford and, as a young child, Iwakuni, Japan.

Rob graduated from Oxford High School and attended Worcester State University. Upon graduating from high school, he joined the U.S. Navy and served honorably for four years as a medical corpsman. He was stationed all over the world, including Camp LeJeune, NC.

Besides his parents, he is survived by his sons, Alex Mason of Hartford, Connecticut and Scott Langley of Vancouver, Washington.  Rob is also survived by his sister Cynthia Masciangioli and her husband Mark of Dudley, father Ralph Parmenter of Webster, sister Kim White and husband Todd of Brooklyn, CT and brother Richard Parmenter and wife Megan of Webster.  Rob's family also includes many nieces, nephews, uncles and aunts who will dearly feel his loss. Besides his family, Rob leaves a very close friend, Satoko Matsueda of Buffalo, NY.

Rob was a free spirit with a keen intellect who endured the consequences of his illness with dignity and grace. It can be said that he treated people with respect and consideration regardless of the situation. His interests included music, physics, art, science and meteorology. He was also an accomplished photographer whose work was recognized by various publications. His main focus, however, was on his boys and their paths through life. He'll be remembered as a wonderful father who, even through the personal tests of the last few years, was always present for his sons. They, and his friends and family will remember and miss him very much. The family would also like to thank Dr. Muthalagu Ramanathan and the Oncology Department at UMass Memorial for their care from the beginning and during Rob's ordeal.
