In Memoriam: David Langford
One year ago today we lost our beloved friend and colleague David Langford. David Langford was known for his work on Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, Jeopardy with Alex Trebek, and The Richard Simmons Show. He also played a role as Department Head at Paramount and Disney, and as a member of I.A.S.T.E. Local 706. Langford was a part of the MUD extended family for years, and taught at our Burbank school since 2010.
“David and I not only shared a love of make-up and teaching that goes back to the late eighties, but we also shared a birthday. He had an enthusiasm and a love of life that was so contagious and I could not help but smile whenever I was around him. He truly cared about his students and whether they succeeded, he and I would often talk about what graduates are doing and how proud he was. He was a teacher, a mentor and a friend that touched so many people in such a positive way that I feel honored to have worked with him and even luckier to call him a friend.”
—Paul Thompson, Director of Education
David Langford is survived by Pam, Ryan, and Erin Langford. He is missed dearly by everyone here at MUD.
