Lion Gabriel Langan, 37, passed away January 23, 2013 as a passenger in a fatal car accident, in Portland, Oregon. Lion was born in Seattle, Washington February 26, 1975, to Kerry and Patrick Langan. Lion spent his childhood in many places, including, Texas, Germany, Kodiak, Alaska and ending up in Snoqualmie Pass (Alpental), Washington where he met the love of his life, Heather Ennis. Upon meeting Heather for the first time he declared to her that she would be his girlfriend one day; he was right. While in Alpental he built log cabins, but his favorite job was bartending where he could meet and learn about all kinds of people. He loved being up on the mountain snowboarding and hanging with friends. Lion was a true free spirit, going on many adventures with his mom and sister Lindsay in Texas and Germany and fishing with his dad and step mom on the Bering Sea. Throughout his adventures he made many special friends. He was a reader like none other thanks to his mother who had him reading Steinbeck by the age of 5.
Heather and Lion have spent the last 11 years in Portland, Oregon, working, playing and creating a life together.
Lion is survived by his long time girlfriend Heather Ennis of Portland, Oregon (Naches, WA), his mother, Kerry Smith (Mitch Domeier) of San Antonio, Texas; his father and stepmother, Patrick and Lynn Langan of Anchorage, Alaska, his little sister Lindsay Butler (nephews Noah, Luke and Ricky), of Walla Walla, WA, his beloved son, Makiah Gabriel Langan of Wenatchee WA, a large loving family, Heather's family, his little 'sweet pea' dachshund, Arcade (Cade) and his "forever friends" all of whom he loved dearly.
Lion was preceded in death by his Uncle Jason, grandma and grandpa Koehler and his Aunt Lisa.
A Celebration of Life was held January 27, 2013 with his family and friends.
As in life, in death Lion remained a giving person. Lion was an organ donor and gave the gift of vision.
Donations may be made to a favorite charity, local library, Humane Society, M.A.D.D., Bastrop Christian Outreach Center or Lions VisionGift.
The family thanks everyone far and near for their outpouring of love and support.
