The Florida State University community expressed sadness Friday at the passing of civic leader George Langford and deep appreciation for his untiring leadership and loyal support of FSU for more than five decades.

“George earned admiration and respect not only for the countless ways he served FSU but also for his integrity and great love for this institution,” said President John Thrasher. “He has passed on that love to his family, and they also are very active with Florida State. We could not be more grateful for their friendship.”

Calling Langford a pillar of the community, FSU Vice President for University Advancement Tom Jennings said, “It is difficult to overstate his positive influence on so many aspects of FSU’s athletic and academic programs.”
