Arthur J. Langdon of E. Haddam/Colchester, CT went home to be with his Lord on July 8, 2023.  He was born on May 23, 1940, the son of the late Arthur J. and Clara C. Langdon. He was brother to: Jeannette (deceased), Claire, Robert (deceased) and E. Hampton (deceased). Art was born in Brooklyn, New York and moved to Haddam Neck, CT in 1951.

 Art graduated from East Hampton High School in 1958, and from University of Hartford in 1962. He served as an officer in the U.S. Navy aboard the Aircraft Carrier, USS Lake Champlain from 1962-1965. 

 Art married Claudia M. Carlson on May 4, 1963. They met on a blind date New Year’s Eve of 1962.

 On May 4, 2023 they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. They have four children: Cindy Lulsdorf (Tom), Nancy Hill (Tim), Art (Beth), and Dave (Jackie); nine grandchildren, and five great grandchildren. And Peggy Rouleau (Dave’s mother-in-law).

 He worked for SNETCO in the sixties, started his own rental company in 1972 and sold it in 1978. He taught in Christian schools and in 1987 started his own insurance practice and ran it for 35 years until retirement. At age 55, Art became the bi-vocational pastor of the Lebanon Bible Church for 16 years. He conducted a Bible study every Friday night for 16 years at the Radgowski Prison. He served as a Hospice Patient Volunteer for 20 years and spent many Saturdays’ volunteering in the Isaiah 58 Ministry in New Britain (feeding the poor and homeless and handing out clothing and bags of groceries). Art was an avid deer hunter for 70 years. 

 Family was a huge part of his life; he was greatly loved by all of us.  The big annual tradition was the Haddam Neck Fair. As we would often say when parting ways, “We love you Dad, we love you more than tongue can tell”. 

 A Memorial Service will be held at later date, more information will be available soon.

 Art wrote the following to be a part of his obituary. After ten years of marriage both Art and Claudia became born again Christians. Church played a very important role in their lives.

 Christianity teaches that our main problem is sin. After death comes judgment (Hebrews 9:27). Dear reader, are you 50 %, 75%, or 100% sure when you die you will go to heaven? The Bible clearly says you can be 100% sure: I John 5:13, “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life.” “The Romans Road to Heaven” tract helped both Art and Claudia to understand how to become believers in Jesus (Romans 3:23; 5:8; 6:23; 10:9-13; Ephesians 2:8-9). Art’s hope when sharing this good news (the gospel) with others was that by citing God’s grace, mercy, forgiveness, and love, it would lead to fruitful dialog.

 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” …… “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” ….. “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (John 3:16, 36; Romans 10:9). Art was ready to meet his maker and redeemer. Are you?
