August 21, 1947 — September 1, 2021

Dennis Rudy Langston, 74, of Fergus Falls, died Wednesday, September 1, 2021 at the U of M Medical Center in Minneapolis.

Dennis was born August 21, 1947, to Rudolph and DeLores (Johnson) Langston in Fergus Falls. He graduated from Breckenridge High School in 1965. He was a member of the United States Air Force from 1967-1973, serving one year in Korea.

On July 26, 1969, Dennis married Kathy Bergerud in Elbow Lake.

Dennis worked a variety of jobs in his lifetime but enjoyed being in the mens clothing business, particularly Langston’s Clothiers and Hamilton’s. One of his most enjoyable endeavors was owning a bar/restaurant with his wife. He was always happiest when he was talking with people, whether at work, over coffee or a beer, or at the bar.
