Alfred Lee Landis of Aiken, South Carolina, formerly of Bloomery, West Virginia, died unexpectedly at his residence on November 5, 2022, at the age of 84.
Alfred Lee is survived by his loving daughters Judy (Daniel) Landis Taber of Manassas, Virginia, Tina Landis of Bloomery, West Virginia, and Sally (Gene) Bynaker of Milford, Delaware, and the love of his life Vickie Weller, of Aiken, South Carolina. In addition, he leaves behind his grandchildren Justin Alford of Richmond, Virginia, Athena Satterfield of Bloomery, Sandy Miller of Stephens City, Virginia, Cory Ann Bynaker of Milford, Delaware, and Dillon Bynaker, also of Milford, Delaware, as well as four great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents Arlie and Winfred Landis, his grandsons Travis Hott and Stephen Taber, and his siblings Earle Landis and Barbara Gilmore.
He was born in Mitchells, Virginia and after graduating from high school, embarked on a very successful and lengthy career in heavy equipment operation and in the then just blossoming home construction field in Northern Virginia and West Virginia. He never met a stranger and was a jack of all trades who could talk the ear off a cigar store wooden Indian if given the chance. His love of bluegrass music was only second to enjoying the time he spent deer hunting in the woods with his close friends. He had an eye for antiques and had collected many over the years.
The family will receive friends from 11:30 am on Thursday, November 10, 2022, at the Giffin Funeral Home,2807 Northwestern Turnpike, Capon Bridge, WV 26711 with a memorial service to follow at 12:30 am, officiated by his dear, close friend Ben Smelser.
