Very sad news indeed, RIP Bobby!
I saw him when I was a kid at Caddo Mills in 1959 or 1960. Never got to meet him. Rest in peace.
terrible to hear, RIP..
Very sorry to learn of his passing. He was one of the greats, never forgot a race I watched between Bobby Langley and Bob Haines, driving the Haines & Cross car, at the '60 Smoker's meet, both sideways, neither lifted, forgot who won, but the most exciting race of the day...he was a classic, built his own cars (one from bedframe rails, if I remember right), raced across the country, usually with his wife and son as the only crew members.....he will be missed.
Sad day indeed...Thoughts and prayers go out to Ruth and the family.
RIP B. Langley a fellow Texan and great man. Not the fastest dragster of all time but one of the most beautiful. (click on pictures to enlarge)
This is what I have on the arrangments. Laurel Land Funeral Home 7100 Crowley Rd. Ft. Worth, TX. 76134........ viewing Tuesday from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, burial at 10:00 AM Wednesday. Hope this helps. I'm still in shock, RIP Bobby.
