Plan Ahead

Lang, Franklin D.

January 30, 1933 –
 January 12, 2021


Franklin Lang, a life-long resident of Euless, TX, went peacefully to his eternal home on January 12, 2021.

Frank was born in Slidell, TX on January 30, 1933 to Carl and Essie Lang. After high school, Frank served his country for four years with the United States Air Force, before moving on to his career with the Burlington Railroad. After 25 plus years he then enjoyed his remaining years in retirement. He married Rosa Bentley and fathered three children: Kathy, Janet and Mack Darryl Lang (Deceased).

Frank was a devoted family man, who loved sharing his heart of gold with jokes and laughs. Whenever anyone went over to see him, he would absolutely light up as he opened his door. He loved his family so much, but would be the first to tell you that you were screwing up. He always had a project for anyone who came over whether it was wood work or yard work, he never sat still. The last couple of years, his health deteriorated, but the man was such a fighter. This last Christmas, he was in the hospital fighting for his life and requested to be released so he could spend Christmas with his family. He then took a turn for the worst a few days after. We know he’s now in heaven celebrating his arrival home with his son Darryl, and is no longer suffering in this dark world.

Frank is survived by his wife, June Lang; his children Kathy Lang Anderson and Janet Lang Wright, Son-in-Law Ralph Wright; Grandchildren David Blanchard and wife Geri Blanchard, Josh Lang and wife Laura Lang, Shana Murphy and husband Stephen Murphy, Anthony Hadley and wife Skyler Hadley, Jimmy Don Hadley and Meshea Anderson; Great Grandchildren Brooke, Ashlynn, Peyton, Colton, Aiden and Damyon.

A funeral service is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. on January 16, 2021 at the Aria Cremation & Funeral Homes on N. Belt Line with visitation starting at 11:00 a.m. Brother Johnny will officiate. Flowers, donations and condolences may be offered at 1820 N. Belt Line Rd. Irving, TX 75061

13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so, we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words. – 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18

    Frank (Mack) was my Uncle. He was a wonderful man. He always had a smile and a twinkle in his eye. I wish I would have talked to him more about his military service. What little I did hear is very impressive. He saved my life once when I was a little kid. He grabbed me before a bull got me. He will be missed. Prayers and hugs to the family.

"Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again."

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
