John Christopher Lang passed away suddenly at home on November 4, 2017, at the age of 35 years.

A native of Raleigh, Chris attended Needham Broughton High, where he was a member of their award-winning drumline. Chris graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Electronic Media/Broadcast Communication, and then returned to work in the Raleigh area, most recently working as a multimedia developer with Cisco. His love for technology and creativity carried over into his spare time. He played music with friends, created videos and cartoons, and was developing a video game. Chris had the discipline of his father and the creativity of his mother, devoting everything he had to pursuing what he loved. He will be remembered for his booming laugh and was always armed with a well-timed joke.

He is survived by his wife of 6 years, Carey Debnam Lang, who by Chris' own admission made him a better person. Chris is also survived by his daughter, Lucy, to whom he was a loving and devoted father. Lovingly remembering Chris are his parents, Dr. John and Cheryl Lang, and sisters, Alyssa Froelich and Katie Lang.

Chris' family will be receiving between 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. on Friday, November 10, at The Glenwood at 3300 Womans Club Dr., Raleigh, NC 27612 (also known as the Woman's Club). A Celebration of Chris' life will be held in the same location on Saturday, November 11, at 1:00 p.m., with reception to follow until 5:00 p.m. Arrangements are being made by Brown-Wynne Funeral Home.

Memorial donations in memory of Chris can be made to Dorcas Ministries at 187 High House Rd, Cary, NC 27511.
