Richard J. "Rich" Langiewicz, 86 of Stanley, died peacefully with his family by his side on March 30, 2019, home. He was born on June 7, 1932, in Thorp, the son of the late Alex and Eva (Rogalski) Langiewicz. Rich grew up tending Eidsvold grade school and then joined the Army in1953.

Rich was the love of Bunny's life. He was a fun and loving father and grandfather. He was a talented bartender well known for his old fashions. A few of the things he most enjoyed were fishing, gardening, having camp fires, and spending time with his dog, Pierre. There are so many memories that will be forever cherished.
