Age: 19


Chase M. Langston, 19, of rural Parsons, one of the greatest young cowboys God ever created, went to be home with his Lord and Savior at 8:35 a.m. Thursday, April 6, 2023, at Freeman Hospital surrounded by his loving parents and sister following a tragic accident in Miami, Oklahoma.

Chase was born on Jan. 19, 2004, at the cowboy capital of Kansas, Dodge City, to Jason and Taffy (Shouse) Langston. Joining his older sister, Emily, he was the fourth edition to the “Core Four.” He moved with his family to Parsons where this would be the beginning of his amazing life story that had lots of love, joy, laughter, jokes and pranks along the way. He attended Parsons and Labette County schools, graduating from Labette County High School in 2022. He was a current student at Northeast Oklahoma A&M College in Miami where he was studying ranch management.

It is impossible to put into words the life of Chase Langston, but if you could in one sentence it would sound something like this: Work hard, play hard and love hard the cowboy way.

Work hard: Chase was no stranger and was not afraid to take on hard work. He had a love for construction and farm and ranch work. At LCHS he was in FFA and competed at nationals in agriculture sales. He developed his passion for construction in Tyler Cares’ carpentry program at LCHS, learning everything about the building process and participating in SkillsUSA. He put into practice his education and passion working for Tyler, Hinman Construction, helping on area farms working and moving cattle, at the Kansas State Experiment Station and at the NEO A&M farm.

Play hard: Chase had a passion for living life to its fullest and making the most out of each adventure life would bring his way. Chase’s passions included everything that comes with the life of a cowboy. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, outdoorsman and promising bronc rider; he was looking forward to many future rodeos. He was an avid baseball player and excelled at the plate and on the mound playing for Parsons, Labette County and the Girard Bulls. He also was on the Parsons swim team. Most of all, he cherished playing hard with his family and friends, making many memories and stories with them in the process.

Love hard: Chase’s faith, family and friends were the foundation of his life. Chase loved as hard as he worked and played. His kind heart and loving spirit were demonstrated every day in the lives he touched, the friendships he made and the family he shared. Everyone who knew Chase has their own stories of how their life is better because Chase was a part of it. Even people who never met Chase now have their own stories of how he impacted their lives through his gift of being an organ donor. It can be said that Chase and the “Core Four” didn’t have friends because the friends they have are all considered family and loved as family. At the center of it all in his life was his love for his Lord and Savior Jesus and making his life and all of ours better because the love he had his heart was the love of Jesus.
