Roger Landers, of Litchfield, MN, passed away on January 25, 2023 in his home at the age of 87, wit, wisdom and charm fully intact. He was a generous man who helped out whenever he could. Roger saw the usefulness in everything; he owned 4 grills, 3 of them for parts. After serving in the Navy, Roger met and married the love of his life, Rosalind. They moved their young family to Litchfield, MN in 1963 where Roger started Landers Electric, Inc. When lightning struck their home, Roger said, "God tried to burn me out of my house, and I rebuilt it. The only way I'm leaving is if they haul me out in a hearse." His prophecy came true 44 years later on 1/25/2023.
Roger is survived by: Siblings Jack (Lucy) Landers and Joan (Ron) Mansmith; Children Russell Landers, Roxanne Landers (Chris Daniels), and Rodney (Jennifer) Landers; Grandchildren Katie Landers (Tom Andrews), Robert Mushrall III, Leland (Karen) Mushrall and Ellie Landers; Pets Trooper the dog and George the cat.
Roger and Rosalind's family invites well-wishers to celebrate the lives of this couple on February 17, 2023 at First Presbyterian Church in Litchfield, MN from 6-8 pm. The couple will be interred at Fort Snelling on their wedding anniversary, February 23, 2023, during a private ceremony.
