VIRGINIA BEACH – David Erwin Langbord, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away on December 28 at the age of 68.

Born on May 10, 1955, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, David lived a remarkable life filled with joy, laughter, and meaningful connections.

David possessed a natural talent for building relationships and creating bonds with those around him. With his magnetic personality and quick wit, he effortlessly transitioned between being a class act and the class clown. He deeply valued the connections he had with family and friends and the personal relationships he maintained for decades. David was a truly a great friend.

A history buff with a love of old black and white movies, David found solace in the nostalgia they invoked and could usually be found watching them with his beloved golden retriever, Emma, by his side. David enjoyed sharing fascinating stories from the past, captivating all who were fortunate enough to listen.

David is survived by his loving wife, Barbara, their sons, Bryan (Sarah) and Mark (Alisa), grandchildren Liora, Oliver, June, and Jonathan, who brought immeasurable joy to his life, his mother, Joan, and his brother, Roy. He also had special connections with sister-in-law and brother-in-law Lynn and Clyde Hoelzer, nieces and nephew, and his Sam’s Club family.

A memorial service was held at the Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel. This gathering served as a reminder of the profound impact David had on all of us and the legacy of love and authenticity he leaves behind.

In our hearts, David will forever be cherished as an inspiration—a man who taught us the value of genuine connections, the importance of laughter, and the beauty of maintaining a strong sense of community. As we bid farewell to this remarkable soul, let us remember the light he brought into our lives and continue to honor his memory through acts of kindness and unconditional love. In David’s honor, please pick up the phone and call an old friend just to catch up.
