Obituary

John Theodore Landis, Sr. – passed away on May 24, 2020. Born of the late Harry Monroe Landis, Sr. and Lillie Belle Catherine Myers on July 7, 1934. He is survived by his spouse of 63 years, Leah J. Landis; his children, Leah J. Vigh, of Quakertown, PA, Valerie A. Wunder (Michael), of Quakertown, PA, John T. Landis, Jr. (Lori) of Quakertown, PA and Stacy A. Moyer (Lon) of Mocksville, NC. He was the brother of the late Harry M. Landis, Jr., the late Arthur J. Landis, and Lilly E. (Landis) Schettinger (Philip) of Sarasota, FL. John had 5 granddaughters, Stephenie R. Colmus, Michele T. Marchak (Alex), Myndi T. Wunder (Edward Servaty), Samantha A. Moyer (Christopher R. Maddox) and Loron L. Landis. John also had 3 great-grandsons, Joshua T. Colmus, Jr., Kyran M. Marchak and Landon J. Servaty. John did not graduate from High School (he finished the 9th grade). However, he put himself through night school in order to become a master plumber. Most of his career as a plumber was spent in Philadelphia, PA. He truly enjoyed working on old cars, especially Hudson’s, and tinkering with car engines. He also loved mowing the fields with his tractor. He spent many days outside enjoying the warm sunshine and watching the traffic go by. He was skilled in many trades and he mastered most everything he did. He was so very proud of the home he built on his own. He was an avid reader and truly had a thirst for knowledge. He taught his children to stand on their own and be contributing members of society. He will be greatly missed by his family as we loved him so very much!!! A private service will be held with his immediate family. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution in John’s honor to the MPN Research Foundation, 180 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 1870, Chicago, IL 60601.
