John Patrick Landers, Φ '95, of Mill Valley, CA died 6 December 2011 after a courageous 11-month battle with lymphoma.  He was 38.  

Born on August 29, 1973, in Washington, D.C., he grew up in nearby Bethesda, MD. At Hamilton, he was on the track, basketball, swimming, and rugby teams and was Pledge Whip.  After Hamilton, Patrick moved to San Francisco where he began his lifelong career with his beloved Giants.  He married his wife, Christine Patterson, on September 20th, 2003 at the Presidio of San Francisco.  An Eagle Scout, Olympic torch bearer for the 1996 Atlanta Games, and marathon runner, Patrick's adventurous spirit and mischievous grin infected all those around him.  Not just an employee, but a fervid fan of the Giants, thankfully, he got to celebrate the 2010 World Series Championship with his adopted city and work family.  His love for sports ran second only to his love and devotion to his family and friends.  A proud, loyal, and loving husband and father, Patrick leaves behind his wife, Christine Patterson Landers, two sons Aidan (6) and Ty (3) who he loved more than anything; sisters Mary Margaret Landers and Kathryn Marie Knowles; parents Mary Theresa and John J. Landers; nieces Emma and Lindsay Nie, his beloved dog, Carter, and countless friends and family in the US, Canada, and Ireland. 

During his battle with cancer, Patrick demonstrated strength, courage, bravery, and taught us to to live every moment of life to its fullest. A memorial service was held in San Francisco on Tuesday, Dec. 13th at AT&T Park. Joseph Iuorno, MD, Φ '95, was one of the speakers.  A memorial Mass will be held in Washington, DC on January 22, 2012 at St. Anselm's Abbey School.  

A non-profit fund is currently being established in Patrick's sons' names to ensure that Aidan and Ty have a bright future. You can find more information at www.loveforlanders.org

Brother, thou hast kept the trust, True to thy fraternal tie. Sweet be thy repose in dust, Mourn'd and loved by all Chi Psi. Grant him, Lord, Eternal Rest With the Spirits of the Blest. AMEN
