Paul Eugene Landy March 1, 1966, to September 19, 2022 Paul Eugene Landy, of Crab Orchard, WV entered his eternal home on Monday, September 19, 2022, after a tragic mowing accident at the age of 56.
Paul’s life may have been cut short, but he touched the lives of many while he was with us.Paul was born in Beckley, WV on March 1, 1966, to the late Joe “Moe” and Joanne Landy.
Paul graduated from Marsh Fork High School in 1985. He loved his heritage from his hometown of Stickney, WV and later, Whitesville. Paul was a proud firefighter and ambulance driver while he lived there. On October 16, 1989, Paul was hired on by Raleigh County Schools to become a bus operator. He was so proud of all the many students he hauled in his 32 years of service, and loved to hear the words, “I think you used to be my bus driver.” Paul had talked about retirement but didn’t want to because he loved his job so much. Paul was also the owner/operator of his own landscaping business, Landy’s Lawncare & More, LLC. He had many residential and commercial clients that will miss his services year-round. Paul had a large extended family at his home away from home, The Good Evening Ranch Off Road Park. He was very active in his service there for charity events, a saddle-series that he helped to raise money for, and many off road events that he helped to work. Some of his happiest days were spent at the “ranch” with his friends. Some of Paul’s favorite things were camping in his camper with his “honey”, a nice shiny truck, his recliner, buying tools, being on vacation, and planning his next meal.
Paul is survived by his wife, Nancy Jane (Harless) Landy of Crab Orchard, his stepdaughter Madison Harless and her partner Adam Daniels of Crab Orchard. In-laws, Edward and Jane Lynn Harless of Crab Orchard. Brother-in-law, Eddie Harless and partner Brei Atterson of Crab Orchard. Sister, Maryanne (Landy) Jenkins (Romie) of Sutton, brother John Landy (Pam) of Sutton, brother Larry Massey (Beverly) of Bridgeport. Paul had a best friend who was like a father to him, Billy Jarrell of Sissonville. Johnathan Cruise of Beckley was like a son Paul never had. Paul loved being “Uncle Paul” to his nieces and nephews, Joseph Landy, Jodi Hamrick, Emma Harless, Abigail Atterson, Ella Harless, Connor Atterson, and most recently Tammy Russell.
