Kenneth Raymond Landis, Jr.

July 22,1951 ~ November 5, 2013

Kenneth Raymond Landis Jr was born in Seattle, WA and died in Seattle, WA He was a graduate of Bellevue High School, and Lake Washington Technical College.

As a roadie, technician, audio engineer, production manager and entertainment manager, his work took him to almost every continent. Touring for years with bands like Heart, Cheap Trick, Loverboy. TKO, Triumph and hundreds of others when not locked into a long tour with any given band. He did audio production for the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, CA-The Pro-Bowl, Aloha Bowl and Hula Bowl while living for 10 years in Hawaii plus hundreds of outdoor events, concerts and conventions. The last 10 years of his life were spent as an Entertainment Manager in Las Vegas, NV. He was dedicated to the love of his work, as well as his wife, Jeanette. He spent every day of his life with joy and conviction. He cared about his co-workers and staff beyond what was required. And they loved and admired him to an extent he never would realize.

He loved golf, swimming, surfing, skiing, Cheerios, his beloved cat, Mighty Mouse cartoons and Captain Puget. He could fix anything he got his hands on; he was tenacious and never gave up. He was humble, kind, compassionate and generous to a fault. He was addicted to the PGA and the Seahawks. He was happy to move back to the Pacific Northwest in October of 2013, but sadly his battle with cancer would see an end just 2 weeks after moving to the Redondo area.

He always regretted never having toured Australia, so his ashes and soul will be given to the warm currents of the Tasman Sea, his final tour.

He is survived by his wife Jeanette of Redondo, WA and sister Cathy Gardner of Palm Court, Florida Donations can be made to the University of Washington Lung Cancer.
