Bobby Langston

Bobby Ray Langston, age 87, passed away peacefully Tuesday, November 7, 2023 in his home in Wilson, NC after a long battle with Alzheimer's.

Bobby was born in Wayne County, NC on November 19, 1935.  He started working in the antique business when he was 18 years old.  He opened his own antique and auction business, Bobby Langston Antiques, Inc.

In his earlier years, Bobby enjoyed fishing, hunting, and gardening.

Bobby was preceded in death by his parents, Alex and Malissa Langston; his sisters, Elsie Crawford and Sybil Waddell; and his brother, George T. Langston.
