Dean Lang, 70, of Gillette, Wyoming, passed away June 30, 2019, at Campbell County Health in Gillette, Wyoming.
Dean Allen Lang was born June 21, 1949, in Marshall, Minnesota to Virgil and Marjorie Lang. Dean met the love of his life, Georgia Ann DeMarteleare, in the fall of 1966.
Dean and Georgia were married June 24, 1967, in Elkton, South Dakota. There was not a day that went by he did not remind his “Georgie girl” how much he loved her and their life together. From this beautiful union came four children, Renae, Lisa, Loren, and Lance.
Dean started his career in the farming industry in Russell, Minnesota, but soon found himself working for his father-in-law Melvin with DeMarteleare trucking. In 1980 he and his family made their way to Gillette, Wyoming, where he would try his hat at many things.
He landed his first welding job with Claude’s Welding, and then went on to work at Cordeo Mine as a welder, Osborne Brothers Construction as a Crusher Foreman, and ended his 20 year career at the City of Gillette in the streets department.
Dean never met a stranger. His voice, his laughter, and his unforgettable hugs were his signature. He was also known as the person who could fix anything. It was often said “if Dean couldn’t fix it, it couldn’t be done.” He loved his wife, his children, his grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Family was his everything!
Dean is survived by his forever love Georgia; two loving daughters, Renae Rearick and Lisa (Skip) Eldridge; two beloved sons, Loren Lang and Lance (Raven) Lang, and Greg (Holly) Jackson, whom he always considered a son; his most precious grandchildren Shadiron (Brandon) Brosa, Austin Lang, Brayden Jackson, Trestin Lang, Shey Rearick, Masin Lang, Elias and Eden Lang; and his beautiful great- grandchildren Keaton and Harper “Happy Jo”. Dean is also surived by Kathy Einan and Milton Lang, along with numerous brother and sister in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Dean was preceded in death by his parents, Virgil (Marjorie) Lang, his in-laws Melvin (Betty) DeMarteleare, his bothers, Maynard, Virlane, and twin brother Donald Lang and his son in-law David Rearick.
