On July 15, 1919, he was united in marriage to Lela Miller, who with their daughter Margaret, aged 2, are left to mourn the death of a loving husband and father. Besides his immediate family he leaves his father, 3 brothers, and 1 sister, his mother and 3 brothers having preceded him in death. In March 1920, he located in Colorado Springs hoping the climate here might prove beneficial to his health, which did for a while, but during the last year he had several attacks of pleurisy which in his weakened condition he was not able to resist. In his youth he united with the Mennonite Church, and was a faithful and consistent member until death. Bro. Landis was one of the promoters of the Church here and one of the trustees; also was the first Sunday school superintendent, which office he very ably filled as long as his health permitted. His friends were all who knew him, and the life he lives while among us was the testimony of his religious profession. Funeral services were held Sept. 13 in Colorado Springs and the body was laid to rest in the Evergreen cemetery. Services conducted by D. J. Fisher.
