In Loving Memory of
December 14, 1949 – April 16, 2021
Cornelious Langley, 71, of the 7700 block of Armfield Ave. Norfolk, Virginia went into his eternal rest on April 16, 2021. He passed unexpectedly in his residence. Cornelious was born to James Langley and Carrie D. Langley in Washington, North Carolina. During his early years, he relocated to Virginia and completed his education through Norfolk Public Schools where he was noted to be bright student. He was skilled and agile with his hands and worked in mechanics and masonry over the years. Cornelious was a private man and followed his own path in life. He was generous, gentile, quick-witted, and loved to laugh.
Cornelious leaves to cherish his memory his three daughters, Melissa Parker-Todd of Katy, Texas, Yvette Gilwater (Lorenzo) of St. Louis, Missouri, and Cecelia Rountree-Payne (Eugene) of Virginia Beach, Virginia. He leaves behind eight grandchildren, Lashawn Parker, Shakivla Todd, Melani Lopez, Santana Lopez, Lorenzo Gilwater, Tyrell Gilwater, Kourtney Gilwater, and Ethan Payne. He is also survived by his eight siblings, Leo Langley of New York, William Langley of Roxboro, NC, Carrie Blanchard of Virginia Beach, VA, Beatrice Neal of Norfolk, VA, Cora Langley of Virginia Beach, VA, Merlin Langley of Tallahassee, FL, Milton Langley of New York, and Frankie Langley of Chesapeake, VA. His memory will also be cherished by a host of nieces, nephews and his “Tucker House” Family.
