Robert P. “Bob” Langill, 92, of a longtime resident of Woburn, died peacefully, Tuesday, January 8th, at his home, with his family by his side. He was a beloved husband of 67 years to the late K. Lorraine (Courtney) Langill.

Born in Arlington, Bob was a son of the late Josephine (Titus) and Daniel B. Langill. He was raised and educated in Woburn and a graduate of Woburn High School. After graduation, Bob enlisted in the US Navy. He served proudly as a Gunners Mate, in the South Pacific on USS O’Flaherty, during WWII, until being honorably discharged.

For many years, Bob worked in creating new businesses in the engineering field, first for D.L. Maher, in Woburn, and then at Whitman Howard Engineering, until retiring, in 1991. While working, Bob remained very active in his field as a member of the Maine and New Hampshire Water Works. And he also served on the program committee for Mass and Plymouth County Water Works.

Bob met his beloved wife Lorraine at the infamous “Barney Callahan’s”, the local ice cream shop and shortly after, they got married. Together they brought 4 children into the world to whom they dedicated their lives to. Over the years, as the family grew, they enjoyed nothing more than spending time with all of them! They had many wonderful times in at their home in Maine and loved hosting family and friends for holidays.

Bob was so proud of his home and yard. He was a proud, organized, and structured man who beneath his tough exterior, was a soft, caring and loving family man.
