Barry R. Landmesser, 71, of Shavertown passed away peacefully Monday, Nov. 26, 2012, in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born April 4, 1941, he was the son of the late Karl and Dorothy Shiber Landmesser. He was also preceded in death by his kind and loving wife, the former Wendy Watkins, in 2011; and his brother, Karl.
Barry was a life resident of the Back Mountain. He was a graduate of Wyoming Seminary, Kingston, and attended Penn State University and Luzerne County Community College.
Barry owned and operated an International Harvester dealership, and then for 19 years owned and operated L&W Creations, a jewelry distribution business.
Barry was active socially and very much enjoyed having coffee with friends at McDonald's in Shavertown. He loved the outdoors and found great pleasure in doing yard work, and as a mechanically-inclined person he enjoyed working on his home and cars; Barry could "fix anything."
Barry was a member of the George M. Dallas Lodge F&AM, and was also a member of the Irem Shriners of Dallas.
He is survived by his nephew, Dr. Scott Watkins, Shavertown; and niece, Kimberly Watkins, Maui, Hawaii.
The deceased requested no funeral or memorial service.
Memorial contributions may be made in Barry's memory to Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge, 74 Lockville Road, Dallas, PA 18612.
Arrangements are by Karl E. Blight Funeral Home, Kingston.
The family would like to thank Dr. John Prater and the nursing team at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital for their kind and compassionate care of Barry.
