On May 22, Julian “Mitch” Landry left this earth to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

A Graveside Service will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 28 at Evergreen Cemetery in Orange under the direction of Dorman Funeral Home.

Mitch was a great man who impacted so many with his gentle manner, friendly smile and sense of humor. Many summarize one’s life by where they worked and others with where they lived. We will sum up Mitch’s life with how he lived. In one word, Mitch was a servant. ??He served the world trying to bring honor to God and Jesus. He did this by spending many evenings coaching young men in sports. Other times he taught and shared his love of the outdoors by taking friends and family hunting and fishing. He was often seen visiting people in the hospital or at home. Mitch loved people and people loved Mitch. No matter where you came to know him (DuPont, Fishing, Hunting, Golfing, Church, Wal-Mart, etc.) one thing is for sure, he lived life and brought honor to his family and the Lord. He will be greatly missed but his influence lives on in this world via his friends and family. Mitch was a great man among men, truly a special person.

His was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years in 2001, Barbara Anne Hughes Landry.
