Chris Lango

Brand expert

Chris Lango, a brand expert with more than two decades of experience working with companies such as Warner Bros., Disney, Universal, Six Flags and Sea World, died Sunday at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank of acute respiratory distress syndrome. He was 41.

Lango, who once was a train conductor at Disneyland, carved a niche for himself with his ability to recognize brand potential and then market and exploit those brands.

He most recently worked in the product coordination and marketing department for Warner Bros. Intl. Television Distribution.

He is survived by his partner, Andy Wilkes; his mother; and two sisters.

In lieu of flowers, family suggests donations in his name be made to Providence St. Joseph Medical Center.
