Eddy A. Landers, Sr. of Denver, PA, 76, passed away on September 9, 2023, at home surrounded by his loving family.
He was born in Russellville, AL to the late Clifford and Lonis (Smith) Landers. Eddy was married to his loving and devoted wife, Julia (Shaw) for 53 years.
Eddy served in the Army during the Vietnam War and was Honorably Discharged in 1970. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing. He was also known to race on the dragstrip. Eddy was a devoted New England Patriots and Alabama football fan (RTR!) and he loved watching NASCAR with his son, sons-in-law, and grandsons. Eddy was also very quick with a joke and could make anyone laugh, even up to the very end. His deep southern roots helped shape his love of old-timey country music and bluegrass gospel. Eddy could also be found tinkering in his garage and generously shared his love of working on cars and trucks.
Throughout his life he had several careers which spanned from being a union steel worker and having his own mobile home repair business. Of all his life’s experiences, Eddy found his role as husband, father, pap, and pappy to be most important.
He attended Good Shepherd Community Church in Reamstown for many years.
He is survived by his wife, Julia and their three children and their spouses: Peggy Hawke (Barry) of Lykens, Eddy Jr. (Susan Gantert) of Denver, Kristy Sensenig (Jason) of Stevens; his grandchildren, Cailan Esch, Lacey Hawke, Seth Hawke; Ashley Landers, Austin Landers, Autumn Landers; Owen Sensenig, Carter Sensenig, and Callie Sensenig; Great-Grandbabies: Wyatt and Jonah Esch, Atlas and Ares Dyer; his brother and sister-in-law: Glen Landers (Debbie), his sister and brother-in-law: Jeannie Mysliwczyk (John) as well as many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents as well as a brother, Larry, and sister, Martha.
A celebration of life will take place at Good Shepherd Community Church located at 1360 Ridge Ave Ephrata, PA for friends and family on Saturday, September 30, 2023, starting 2 pm. All are welcome to attend.
