Peter Christian ("Pete") Lang passed away on February 11, 2021, from complications of COVID-19. Pete was born in Baton Rouge on May 10, 1949, and graduated from Istrouma High School in 1967. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1969. While in the USMC, Pete served in Vietnam (receiving the Vietnam Cross of Gallantry w/ Palm) and in Washington DC where, for part of his tour, he was assigned to Camp David. After his military service, Pete returned to Baton Rouge and worked for the City of Baton Rouge until he retired in 2016. Not one to be idle in retirement, Pete then began working for ARCCO Power Systems and was employed there until his passing. Pete is survived by his wife Sandra Withers, his stepdaughter Sabrina Nussbaum, Sabrina's husband Dave Nussbaum, and grandson Patrick Nussbaum as well as his brother and family Thomas, Gloria, and Brian Lang of Glendale, California, and his sister Nancy Ann Newfield and her husband Paul of New Orleans, Louisiana. A kind and outgoing person, Pete enjoyed family, friends, fishing, and photography. Due to COVID restrictions, the interment service with Military Honors to be held at the Louisiana National Cemetery in Zachary will be private. Sandy appreciates all the kindnesses and sympathy expressed by everyone who knew Pete.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Pete on the EBRP Wastewater Improvements program for several years. Not only was he a knowledgeable instrument technician, but Pete was a tireless worker that gave the City/Parish their money's worth and more. He was eager to share his expertise, and always did so with a smile on his face. I am proud to have been able to call Pete my friend. Rest in peace, Peter Christian Lang.

Respectfully, I met Mr Pete Last summer. He was instrumental in my hiring process while I transitioned from military retired status to civilian. His advice and guidance will be passed-through steadfast direction by myself to others to pass along to others.

I am sorry to learn of Pete's passing. I went to school with him from elementary through high school. He was a good man; always of good humor; always willing to lend a hand; never a slacker. Rest in peace!
