Calib Michal Lang
August 28, 1983 ‒ January 07, 2020
Mount Vernon, Ohio
Calib Michal Lang, age 36, of Mount Vernon passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at the Knox Community Hospital.
He was born on August 28, 1983 in Mount Vernon to the loving parents Dick and Mary (Shafer) Lang.
Calib is survived by his father; his children Taylor (Billman) Lang, Conner, Sydnee, Dalton and Xaria Lang; his brother Joshua, Daniel, Jedidiah, Isaac, and Austin Lang; his grandma Shafer and grandma Lang; uncles and aunts, Ken (Lisa) Lang, Don (Judy) Lang, Jim, Tom (Sheree), Joe, Mike, and Tim Shafer; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his loving mother Mary and his grandpa Lang and Shafer.
Calib enjoyed music, movies, traveling, camping, taking long country drives and spending time with his kids and family. He was a Miami Dolphins fan and also loved Notre Dame Football. Calib was a hard worker. He was knowledgeable about so many different things. Anything from carpentry to construction to electric and plumbing, he could do it. He was a good artist and teacher, and he could give great advice to someone that was in need. People closest to him would say he was a good friend and would give you the shirt off his back. He was such a smart, funny, caring, talented, enjoyable person and was fun to be around. Calib had a great smile and a good heart and deep down, he really did know how to love life.
He was a good brother. And he truly loved his family and children. We have so many good memories that will always be remembered. The cookouts in the back yard at mom and dads, and football games on Saturdays and Sundays. The Christmases and all the kid’s birthday parties. Calib made them all so special, and they wouldn’t have been so great without him.
No words will ever describe how devastating this loss has been. Nor will you ever know just how much you are loved and will be missed. We hope you are at peace now with mom and Cabe and are truly happy. We love you so much.
To My Brother: Calib
I will never know the whole reason why,
you felt you had to die.
Your life had meaning and you are loved,
by people here and God above.
Your caring heart and kind ways,
make me think of better days.
We all make mistakes and should learn from them,
don’t hold a grudge, best to forgive.
It’s hard to say I’m sorry in life,
pride leads to so much strife.
For so long you were in pain,
suffered so much from the strain.
People can be cruel and say harsh words,
lots of pain and little to gain.
I send you my love,
wishing you well and give you a hug.
May God reach out to take your hand,
bring you to happiness and peace.
Rest well, big brother and my friend,
I will miss you till the end.
