Mr. Ernest Langston, born January 10, 1938, was the son of the late James (Aussie) Langston and Mary Page Langston. He departed this life on June 10, 2022. After a lengthy illness, in the family home surrounded by his loving wife, Annie, and sister, Mary he closed his eyes.

He attended Horry County Schools and later ventured to Brooklyn, New York, where he married his first love, Edna. To this union was born three children: Edna Ann of Anderson, SC Ernest Jr. and Barry of New York. After the passing of his first wife, he married Annie Carney of Brooklyn, New York. She moved to South Carolina to join him in his hometown and church in Conway, SC, where he served as an usher until he became disabled. He leaves to remember the memories: his wife, Annie Carney-Langston, one daughter Edna Ann of Anderson, SC; two sons, Ernest Jr. and Barry Langston of New York; three sisters: Mary M. Langston, of Conway, SC; Lethia M. Smith (Paul), of Brooklyn, NY; Willamena Jackson, of Paterson, NJ; one step -son, Eric A. Carney (Rochelle), Brooklyn, NY; two brothers-in-law, Harold E.
