  6. To the family of Stan Landrum. My heart and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. Stan worked at the Supreme Court of Ohio when I started there, almost 10 years ago. Everyone knew Stanley, and everyone respected Stanley. My fondest memory of Stan was his ability to help organize our court wide Thanksgiving potluck. He had such passion, and it was often said by the staff that it was the best staff activity of the year. It was one time of year where everyone would gather and share, regardless of position and rank. We talked, we laughed, we prayed. We had Stan to thank for that, and he will be greatly missed.

  9. Prior to his retirement, it was my privilege to work with Stan at the Supreme Court for about six years. He was a man of faith and any time spent with him was, indeed, time well spent. Stan’s life was marked with gentleness, humility and always displayed a love and concern for others. He loved the Lord and his families – those biological as well as spiritual. Although the passing of a loved one or friend is difficult, rest assured there’s a great celebration going on in heaven – Stan has finally come home. Our sincere condolences and prayers for Stan’s family.

  14. To the Landrum Family, I used to work in the same building “State Office Tower” with Stan before I retired in 2009. I am one of three founders of the State of Praise gospel choir. Two of the three founders are resting in Jesus “Ralph Conley & Leon Norman.” During the years of State of Praise choir, Stan was an extremely faithful & dedicated member and coordinator of the choir. He loved God and was a pleasure to know this awesome man of God! His love for the Lord and always helping others was genuine. His grace and humbleness was one of a kind! Heaven gained an angel. Rest on Stan until that great getting up morning Thank you family for sharing Brother Stan with us. Sending you our deepest condolences, prayers for comfort and peace.

    God bless you and keep you
