After graduating from Timmonsville High School, where he played football and basketball, he began working in the tobacco industry as a buyer and grader. He worked for W. A. Adams Company and Standard Commercial for more than 45 years. Mr. Langston was also a farmer and pilot, running a crop-dusting business for several years. He was a long-time member of the Peniel Baptist Church where he served as a deacon and was a member of the choir.
He is survived by his son, Wayne M. (Betsy) Langston Jr.; two daughters, Wendy L. (David) Kaczmarek and M. Cameron Langston (Cam); three grandchildren, Wayne M. Langston III (Way), Pierce S. Langston and Weatherly B. Langston (Web). He is preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Mary G. Langston; two brothers, James A. Langston and Stephen C. Langston.
Due to health concerns, the family has chosen to forgo visitation and a graveside service at this time. A “Celebration of Life” ceremony will be held at a later date and details will be published in the Florence Morning News.
