    SMITHFIELD - Larry Wayne Langley, 67, of Smithfield, VA, and husband of Barbara Liakos Langley, entered into eternal rest suddenly Saturday, January 17, 2015, at his son's residence in St. George, SC.

Born May 11, 1947, in Rocky Mount, NC, Larry was the son of the late Otha Gene and Ida Mae Parker Langley. He was a 1965 graduate of Cooper High School. Also a graduate of Newport News Shipbuilding Apprentice School, Larry retired as a production engineer after 42 years of service at NNSB.

He was a member of St. Vincent's de Paul Catholic Church, Newport News.

In his pastime, Larry enjoyed gardening and manicuring his yard and feeding the birds. All the neighbors envied his "true green" lawn. He was a passionate wood-worker and made bird houses. When Larry was at work in the workshop, to be sure he was making something special for family or friends.

   Dear Barbara and Alton, Roger and I are so saddened by Larry's passing. When we heard this morning, I was filled with so many memories of great times we had together in younger days. I feel there are really no words to properly express our sympathy to you and family.....Larry was such a wonderful, kind hearted person, and we know he will be greatly missed. I was just thinking about you both last week....so, so sorry.

  What Wondrous Love Is This?

Words by Alexander Means
Music by William Walker, 1835


What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

When I was sinking down, sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down beneath God痴 righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing;
To God and to the Lamb, I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb Who is the great 'I Am';
While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing;
While millions join the theme, I will sing.

And when from death I知 free, I値l sing on, I値l sing on;
And when from death I知 free, I値l sing on.
And when from death I知 free, I値l sing and joyful be;
And through eternity, I値l sing on, I値l sing on;
And through eternity, I値l sing on.
