Landan William Gerald
January 10, 1990 – April 14, 2015
Landan was born in Calgary, Alberta to Sheryl Anne
Meggeson and is the greatest gift God could have
ever given to her. He is survived by his Mom, his
Grandfather, William Gerald (Gerry) Meggeson,
his aunt and uncle Debbie and Alan Fenton,
his cousins Karla Fenton and Michael Fenton
and many relatives both near and far. Landan
is also survived by his BFF Sophia Scondrianis.
They shared an extraordinary bond that began at
age 5. Because of this undaunting friendship the
Scondrianis family became a second family to Landan.
He had second families in the Loftus's and the Cowell's as well. He
loved them all and had a comfortable place in each of their lives.
Landan also leaves his fur buddies: Samba, Murdoc and Halo who
will miss his wrestling and utter love. Landan was predeceased by
his loving Grandma, Janet Meggeson, one year ago. His Grandma
would have been right there to grasp his hand and receive his huge
hug as he arrived in Heaven.
Landan's greatest gift from birth was his ability to love and be
loved. He had an infectious and mischievous personality. He
easily became the center of attention and liked to entertain and
make people laugh and feel loved. Landan's family and friends
were most important to him and he was well known for giving the
greatest hugs. He would drop everything to help someone out and
he offered his thoughts and emotions true and pure.
Landan had a magical childhood filled with love, adventure and
travelling to the lake every summer with his Grandma and cousins.
It was here that his passion for water and sports began. As he grew
up he played many sports. His Grandpa was his biggest fan and
was always there to cheer him on. His Grandad was his mentor and
he learned from him in so many ways. There were very few days in
his life that Landan did not go to visit his Grandparents: a tribute
to the closeness he had to them and the comfort he felt in being
around them. After his Grandma passed away, he never failed to
see his Grandpa every single day.
Landan and his Mom had a very special bond. Even when apart,
they were together. They were able to travel and his favorite trip
was to Disneyland in Florida. The carefree child in him always
remained. They spent countless hours discussing and debating
the trials and tribulations of life. Their love for each other and their
conversations were both intense and honest.
Landan completed his schooling in Cochrane, graduating in 2008
with most of the same friends he had entered kindergarten with.
These kids remain a close bunch even today. This is a testament
to a select and very special group of young people! Landan loved
high school and especially his French class.
After graduating, Landan held a few jobs before entering the
construction industry and achieving his 2nd year apprenticeship
in carpentry. He was currently working as a cook at Ducks on the
Roof – a second home for him – while contemplating what to do
next in life. He was in the midst of positive decisions when the Lord
had other plans.
Heaven has received an angel and he is one-of-a-kind. "Carry On"
Landan and share your love and humor while you watch over all of
us. You will be missed on earth Love… every single day!
A private celebration of Landan's life will be held for family and close
Memorial Tributes in Landan's memory may be
