The Morris County St. Patrick’s Day Parade Trustees are pleased to announce the selection of Kevin J. Langan as Grand Marshal of the 2008 Parade. Kevin has been a member of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade committee for 17 years, serving as treasurer from 1991-2000. Currently, Kevin is a trustee of the organization. A founding member of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, Kevin served as treasurer of the Friendly Sons from 1986-2000. He and his wife Eileen are also proud members of the Irish American Association of Northwest Jersey, and they are associate members of the Emerald Society of Morris County.

 

The youngest of Anne and Bernard Langan’s three children, Kevin was educated by the Sisters of Charity at St. Aloysius Elementary School in Jersey City and by the Dominican Sisters at St. Mary’s High School in Rutherford. While working at Morgan Guaranty Trust Company in Manhattan, Kevin met Eileen Redmond, a former Irish step dance instructor. Kevin and Eileen were married in New York City on September 4, 1965. Through the early years of their marriage, Kevin juggled work and education with his growing family. During this time he also served in the US Army Reserve. In 1967 Kevin graduated from Farleigh Dickinson University with a BS in Accounting. Since 1971 Kevin has been a member of both the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJSCPA). Kevin earned his MBA in Accounting and Taxation in 1978 and served as an Associate Professor of Accounting at FDU from 1978-1990.

 

Kevin and Eileen feel blessed to have the love of a large family. Kevin’s brother Bernie and his wife Marian are residents of Saddle River, NJ. Kevin’s sister Maureen Cole and her husband Cliff live in Norwell, MA.  Kevin and Eileen’s children all reside in Morris County. Their daughter Theresa Orben and her husband Chuck live in Wharton. Their daughter Bridget Zambarano and her husband Alan live in Boonton. Their daughter Patti Coulthurst and her husband David live in Succasunna.  Their daughter Jean Marie Carvajal lives in Morristown, and their son, Kevin, Jr. and his wife Megan are residents of Morris Township. Kevin and Eileen’s daughter Dolores passed away in 1973. At last count, Kevin and Eileen are the proud grandparents of 12 grandchildren: Andrew, Kenneth, Joseph, Isabel, Grace, Gavin, Timothy, Brendan, Sofia, Derek, Elizabeth, and Kevin, III. Kevin is quick to remind his children that additions are always welcome!

 

Kevin and Eileen were active parishioners of St. Virgil Church in Morris Plains for 32 years. Kevin served on the Parish Council and was an usher during their time at St. Virgil. He remains a member of the Knights of Columbus, Bishop McLaughlin Chapter. After raising their family in Morris Plains, Kevin and Eileen moved to Sparta in October of 2004. Currently, they are parishioners of Our Lady of the Lake parish in Sparta where Kevin serves on the Parish Finance Committee. 

 

Kevin traces his Irish heritage to his great-grandparents who emigrated from Donegal in the 1840s, settling in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  Eileen’s father emigrated from Arklow, County Wicklow in 1922 and her maternal grandparents emigrated from Graiguenamanagh, Kilkenny in the late 1890s. When in Ireland, Kevin and Eileen always spend time visiting cousins.

 

Kevin is proud to be a part of the effort that goes into making the Morris County St. Patrick’s Day parade a success, and he values the contributions the parade makes to Project Children and to the Project Graduation activities of high schools throughout Morris County. Whether walking at the head of the parade or in the Fourth Division, Kevin believes it is always a privilege to march in celebration of the Irish values of Faith, Family, and Friends.
