David Anthony Langsford died February 10, 2023, after a short and courageous battle with Brain Cancer. He is preceeded in death by his parents Harold J. Langsford Sr. and Maenell S. Langsford, his family friend Gloria Accardo, and sister Kay A. Kimenez. He is survived by his long time beloved friend Janice M. Accardo, family friend Daniel N. Accardo, Anthony Accardo, Nick Accardo, Janelle and Shane Tarver, his brother Harold J. Langsford Jr., and his nieces and nephews.
He was 63 years old. Born in New Orleans, LA, David was a Longtime resident of Metairie, in Jefferson
Parish, LA. David served in the Army, overseas in Schweinfurt, Germany. He remembered those days
fondly and continued to correspond with fellow soldiers throughout his life.
David was a true Entrepreneur. He loved his businesses because most of his customers were his friends.
David never met a stranger. He enjoyed making people happy, so the Food and Beverage Industry was a
perfect fit. He started in the liquor wholesale industry, as a salesman, then moved into owning
restaurants, and bars, along with many other side projects, along the way.
All the while, his Merchant Services business was flourishing.
In 2010, David moved to Mandeville, LA, to solely pursue Processing, and to enjoy his hobbies. The man loved to Fish and Hunt, as well as Cook, Garden, do woodwork, and listen to music. His garage door was always open to friends and neighbors, and there was always the delicious aroma of something simmering on his stove.
My family was fortunate to have David as a lifelong friend. And, we were very happy to have him join us
here on the Northshore. David loved my parents, and he looked out for them like they were his own.
We enjoyed many weekends, filled with crawfish boils, Barbecues, and game nights. Never a dull
moment when Dave was around.
I believe it is safe to say David A. Langsford, was a fun guy, with a good heart, and full of life. He always
had a kind word to say, a dimpled smile and a twinkle in his eye, for everyone he encountered. David
was a good friend, and well respected for his professionalism and integrity. He will be rested at the Veterans Cemetery, in Slidell, LA. He will be missed…
