A native of Palatka, he had resided in Palm Coast for the past few years. Landon began working at his uncle Tommy’s restaurant at a very young age and spent his career in food service.

He worked at Corky Bell’s in Palatka, Chili’s in St. Augustine, The Reef in Vilano Beach, and his current position with LPGA International Club in Daytona. Throughout the years, many employers shared that Landon’s skills in restaurant management were exceptional. His LeeDaddy loved a quote that Landon lived by: “Only those who have learned how to care and serve others will be truly happy.” Landon was very proud of his work often sending photos to family of the amazing food and plates he served. Along with a love for his work was his love for the beach, something his mother instilled in him from a very young age. He shared his love for the beach, surfing and fishing with his 3 children who he adored.
