Dr Charles Thomas Langford, Jr Dr. Charles Thomas Langford, Jr., of Knoxville, formerly of Memphis and Chattanooga, passed away on May 9, 2016. Tom Langford was a man of quick wit and strong conservative principles. He had a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and attended Sevier Heights Baptist Church. He was a man of great sacrifice and hard work. He was proud to have served in Vietnam as a flight surgeon. He was an avid supporter of the University of Tennessee Volunteers and Lady Vols. He started from very humble beginnings in a lower class neighborhood of Chattanooga. A kind aunt gave him the opportunity to rise above his surroundings by paying for his schooling at Notre Dame private school in Chattanooga. He took advantage of this opportunity and worked hard academically and otherwise to excel. He believed in working hard, and that it's not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog. He lived out this principle through surviving bladder cancer and lymphoma over the course of 15 years, before ultimately succumbing to pancreatic cancer. Dr. Langford attended University of Chattanooga and later received his pharmacy degree and medical degree consecutively at University of Tennessee, Memphis. Ultimately he became a specialist in the field of nephrology and established his practice in Memphis. He sacrificed through long hours of labor for his patients, often working 70 hour weeks, because his patients were usually the sickest in the hospital. There were many a Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday in which he left the comforts of his home and traveled to the hospital, because his dialysis patients would splurge and need emergency dialysis. Dr. Langford showed his love to his family by giving them experiences and a life that he himself could never enjoy as a child and young adult. Coming from a hardscrabble upbringing where the luxury of heat in the winter was not always available, he vowed to "never be cold again." – as anyone can attest if they visited his home (he liked it warm, maybe even tropical)! His daughters were able to travel to Europe. His sons and sons-in-law went to many a University of Tennessee football game or bowl game through his graciousness, often when he was working on a football Saturday. He was content to be able to know that someone was there for him, cheering on the Vols, while he was listening on the radio. Upon retirement and moving to Knoxville, Dr. Langford was able to recapture some of the moments he sacrificed while working, by spending time with his many grand children when they came to visit, reconnecting with his high school friends, reconnecting with his fellow Vietnam veterans, and supporting about every UT sports team there is – if ping pong had been even a club sport he would have been there cheering them on. Dr. Langford is survived by his wife of 54 years, Ruth Langford; his daughter, Laurie Fox and her husband, Andy Fox, of Knoxville, his daughter Susan Bradford and her husband Geoff Bradford, of Raleigh North Carolina; his son Tripp Langford of Seattle, Washington; and his son Kerby Langford, of Memphis. His brother Gene Langford and wife Sandy survive him. Also surviving Dr. Langford are his grandchildren: Anna Catherine Fox, Bailey Fox, Grace Fox, Garrison Bradford, Sam Bradford, Henry Bradford, Clay Bradford, Ezra Bradford, and Asher Bradford. The family will receive friends from 9 to 10 a.m. on Friday at the Click Funeral Home Farragut Chapel followed by a Celebration of Life at 10 a.m. with Rev. Geoff Bradford officiating. Family and friends will gather at 1:30 on Friday at the East Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery, 2200 East Gov John Sevier Highway for graveside services for full military honors conferred by the U S Army and the Volunteer State Veteran's Honor Guard. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to The Vietnam memorial or to Love worth Finding (www.lwf.org/donate).
