Landauer, August “Jeff”
Knox- August “Jeff” Landauer passed away peacefully at home on January 23, 2022. Son of the late Joseph and Shirley Landauer. Jeff was the loving father of Justin T. (Lisa) Landauer.
Jeff lived his life with a drive to excel in whatever he set his mind to. He was a valued mentor to all his family and friends. Jeff was a 1970 graduate of Berne-Knox -Westerlo High School. He loved his family, farming and flying his plane from his own runway at home. He also loved driving his personally restored Ford Model A antique vehicles. Jeff enjoyed his many friends with whom he shared many of his passions. Working several jobs during his lifetime from construction to highway superintendent, his favorite job was tending to his family farm and raising cattle.
In addition to his son Justin and daughter -in-law Lisa, Jeff is proud grandfather of Cadan Landauer; beloved brother of Judi Stinson, Jackie (Clyde) Hallock; his brother James (Laura) Landauer; sister-in-law Bonnie Landauer and his uncle David (Dianne) Schanz. Jeff is also survived by several cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Jeff was the former husband of Lona Landauer and Debbie Landauer, special friend of Sheila and Carol. In addition to his parents Jeff was predeceased by his beloved son Jason Landauer and his brothers Thomas, Joel and John Landauer. Jeff would not want anyone to mourn his passing but to merely remember him with a smile, remembering the things he did in life to brighten up someone else’s life.
