Service: 1:00 pm Monday December 14, 2020 Holly Hills Memorial Park Mausoleum Chapel; Memorial Visitation:4:00 – 6:00 pm Sunday December 13, 2020, Martin’s Funeral Home. He was loved by all, never met a stranger and had a smile for everyone. He was a faithful husband of 58 years. He loved his family dearly and deeply cherished his friends. His life was centered on strong Christian values.
He was born August 11, 1945 in Littlefield, TX, to M.J. and Betty Vanlandingham. Marvie was a great provider for his family, a building contractor by trade for over 50 years in west and north central Texas. He was a master craftsman. His hobbies were riding motorcycles and restoring classic Fords, especially 30’s and 40’s models. He was a ‘Man’s Man’. In his words “A lifetime has passed by before I knew it, so make the best of it.”
Marvie was preceded in death by his parents: M.J. and Betty Vanlandingham.
He is survived by his loving wife: Keron Vanlandingham; 3 children: Terry Vanlandingham of Austin, TX, Penny Paﬀ and son-in-law, Cannon of Lago Vista, TX, and Shonny Vanlandingham of Durango, CO; and brother: Dennis Vanlandingham and wife, Cindy; sister: Brenda Houchin and husband, Dan and 3 grandchildren: Lyberty Paﬀ, Jordan Paﬀ and wife, Keturah and Acacia Vanlandingham; and aunt: Norma and uncle, Clayton and many nieces nephews and cousins.
He will be deeply missed but we’ll always cherish our memories with him.
My wife and I were provided with impeccable service. It felt as if we had first class service. The time the staff spent to make sure nothing was overlooked showed me just how much compassion and expertise they have for their job.
