Werner ‘Nook’ Langner: Aug. 7 1924 -Dec. 6, 2018

Werner “Nook” Langner, born in Carson City, Nev. on Aug. 7 1924, passed on Dec. 6, 2018 at home in Freeland on Whidbey Island.

His parents were Reinholt and Ella Wichert Langner. He lived most of his life in Sultan, Wash. on the Skykomish River.

He farmed some, but most of his time he worked in the woods logging and building logging roads.

He was married to Pauline Keck and they had three sons: Alan, Paul and James.

Nook was preceded in death by his son, Alan.

He is survived by wife, Pauline; sons, Paul and James; granddaughters Lisa, Courtney, Cathleen and Teri; as well as five great-grandchildren, Alex, Annie, Aurora, Eleanor and Abigail.

His nieces and nephews were important to him, especially Elta and Sandy.

Nook’s life could best be described with the hymn: “This is My Fathers World” – 1901 Maltbie D. Babcock.

“This is my Father’s world; and to my listening ears all nature sings and round me rings; the music of the spheres.

This is my Father’s world, I rest me in the thought of rocks and trees of skies and seas; his hand the wonders wrought.”

A memorial will be held at noon at the Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church on Saturday, Dec. 15, 2018.
