JOHN CONWAY LANG, 74, passed away surrounded by his family November 30th, 2018 at the Cleveland Clinic after heroically fighting leukemia. His determination and happy heart were relentless!

In addition to raising his family in Westlake, John was active in Boy Scouts, St. Ignatius Band, coaching, and volunteering at the Cleveland Marathon for years. John and Kathleen loved to travel, bowl, and belong to dance clubs. John’s favorite hobby was gardening. John had such a kind heart.
