Obituary

Shawn T. Landers passed away suddenly of natural causes in his home on Saturday, February 19, 2022.  

Shawn was born in Manhattan and remained there in his early years. When he was 13 years of age the family moved to the Bronx. While in the Bronx the Landers family made many life-long friends; from friends and neighbors on Watson Avenue to hanging out with the crowd at PS 36 and later with the Castle Harbour crew. He was also a resident of Pelham, NY, for many years.

Shawn graduated from Manhattan Technical High School where he studied architectural drafting. He held a variety of jobs throughout his life from Teamster, Steamfitter, USPS Mail Carrier to school bus driver; none of which he enjoyed.... He preferred being at home with his guitars and music.

As a great guitar enthusiast, Shawn was self-taught and became a very proficient player.  He also enjoyed the guitar playing of others and debated the best songs of all time as either Layla (E. Clapton) or Comfortably Numb (Pink Floyd).

Most of his family and close friends know that Shawn suffered from spinal stenosis.  He endured many years of pain from this disease.  We do know his suffering is finally over and that he is at peace.

Recently, Shawn resided in Putnam County at Brookside Community, a senior cooperative.  Over the past three years he met so many wonderful people who became great neighbors and friends. 

He is survived by brothers William and Michael Landers.  He is also survived by aunts, uncles and cousins. Shawn will be sorely missed by his family and friends.He is survived by brothers William and Michael Landers.  He is also survived by aunts, uncles and cousins. Shawn will be sorely missed by his family and friends. Shawn is predeceased by his parents John and Rosemarie Landers.
