Martin "Marty" Landon, 51, died May 18 at his home in Dallas.
He was born in Michigan but had lived in Texas for the past 18 years. He worked in the security field throughout his life and liked to play cards and computer games. He was full of joy and laughter and silliness. His greatest joy in life was the love of his family and friends, who will all miss his smile and bright eyes.
Landon was preceded in death by his mother and father and his sister Robin. He is survived by his sisters, Kathy, Karen, Pam and Elizabeth, his brothers-in-law, his nieces and nephews, many other family members and by his extended family, Lee, Kevin, Rusty, Nikki and Michael.
