Judge John Langford, who presided over cases in Fulton County Superior Court and around the state for decades, died Saturday at the age of 88.

Langford’s legacy extends far beyond the legal community, as friends and family recalled that he officiated Southeastern Conference football games during the 1960s, devoted countless hours to boys from public housing in his Boy Scout troop and enjoyed outdoor adventures like a trip on the Colorado River and a climb up Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.
