In November, 1936, the Langs moved to Gilette Road, Fairhaven, and Walter worked for Warren Cheetham, well drilling. That did not work out. In March, 1937, they moved back to Middleboro, bought a house, and Walter went into business for himself. They lived there 25 years and built up a sizable business, where Dorothy answered the phone and did the bookkeeping for the business.
In 1942 we hired a cottage for the month of August on Quelle Lane in Marion. We were near the beach and the children enjoyed this so much. The following year in 1943 we bought a cottage on the same street. We needed to get away from the business on weekends and in the summer months. Walter went back and forth. In 1962 we moved down there and winterized it for year around living.Walter Lang died at home, at Marion, Massachusetts, on 1 September 1975, of a massive heart attack, with no warning.
