Bob was born on September 15, 1937, in Des Moines to Rose and Thomas Langin. He was the youngest of six children.

He enjoyed vacations to top national golf resorts, and he taught the game to others. Bob took great joy in the U.S. Ryder Cup victory shortly before his passing. He enjoyed watching the Cyclones and Hawkeyes and was an avid Cubs fan. He was a parishioner at St. Pius X Catholic Church for many years before moving to Ankeny and joining Our Lady's Immaculate Heart Catholic Church.
