Ronald Lang passed away on September 14, 2018 at Humboldt District Hospital. Ronald was born April 8th, 1950 to Wilfred and Marcella (nee Ludwig) Lang in New Westminster, BC. Ronald was their second son, arriving a couple of years after his older brother Arnold. The Lang family returned to Saskatchewan in 1952 to make their home in Middle Lake. The next year, 1953, saw the arrival of a new baby sister Karen. Ronald attended school in Middle Lake and involved himself in community events. You could always count on his warm smile and cheerful disposition. After high school he worked as a mechanic in Saskatoon until a car accident in 1969 changed the course of his life. He returned to his family home in Middle Lake to recover and face new challenges. He then became employed by the Town of Middle Lake, clearing snow, cutting grass, and helping with general maintenance. For a period of time he did shop work for Kirsch Construction. A few years after his father's death in 1990 Ron retired from his employment with the Town and took on the role of companion and caregiver to his mother Marcella until her death in 2016. Ron had a wonderful sense of humor. He was never lost for words and never missed an opportunity to make someone laugh. He was keenly interested in cars, especially antique cars and anything to do with machines. Ron had a generous heart and was always ready to help a friend. His nature was gentle, and he loved animals, especially a dog named Tiki. Ron also had a great love for his community and the people of Middle Lake. His favorite time of the day was early morning when he made his way over to Zimmer's to get the coffee on for his “Coffee Buddies.” He was faithful to this routine until his very last days in Middle Lake. Ron will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by everyone who knew him and every life he touched. Ron was predeceased by his parents Wilfred (April 2, 1990); his mother Marcella (Nov 30, 2016); his sister Karen (Nov 26, 1971) and his brother Arnold (Feb 16, 2001).
