I am filled with sorrow as I post this.

"Albert Richard Langelier, also known as 'John' passed away on April 19th
just ten days before his 85th birthday from Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

John was born on April 29, 1931 in Detroit, Michigan. He was married for 55 years to Joyce Pranulis Langelier
and is survived by his wife, two sons, Jordan and Matthew and two granddaughters, Sarah and Christine.

He served as a Marine Sergeant during the Korean war. Following his discharge in 1953
he attended Juilliard School of Music where he excelled on the French horn.

John began a career in broadcasting as an announcer for classical music stations
and as weather forecaster for WHYY, Channel 12.

In 1974 he and his wife began a still active business which have been sold around the world."


Matthew Langelier is their son and is in taking care of business,
working on expanding our product line.
