A native of Wilmington, Delaware, he was born November 10, 1947, to Charles Singer and Elizabeth Ann (Mayan) Landis, one of six children. Mr. Landis proudly served his country in the U.S. Army as a medical corpsman, including a tour of duty in Vietnam.

Mr. Landis moved to Homosassa nearly ten years ago from Newark, Delaware and upon his retirement to Florida, became a school bus driver for the Citrus County School System, a position he held for nine years. Roman Catholic by faith, he attended St. Benedict's Catholic Church in Crystal River.
Fred is survived by his wife of nearly 44 years, Margaret Ann Landis of Homosassa; daughter, Jennifer Lynn Landis, Tampa; and his five sisters, Elizabeth Ann Giorgi, Kathleen D. Wheatley (husband William), Carol Ann Mitchell (husband James), all of Wilmington, Delaware, Joan Marie Reeder (husband Mark), Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania and Margaret Mary Leonetti (husband Joseph), also of Wilmington, Delaware; as well as many nieces, nephews, and an extended family of many friends and coworkers.
