Gerald Anthony Landi, 76

Gerald Anthony Landi (Tony) (76) passed away on 14 September 2016 from Stage 4 lung cancer. Survived by his loving wife Ramona (Pomie) Landi of 55+ years of marriage – it was love at first sight.landi

Their happy union produced a son, Dennis A. Landi and a daughter, Lisa Y. Landi-Bernhardt both of Ashburn, Virginia, who also survive Tony along with his daughter-in-law, Christina M. Landi, and  son-in-law, David E. Bernhardt and three grandchildren, Rhys L. Gully (29), Chelsey M. Knarr (27), Emma C. Landi (15) and one great grandchild, Rhyker J. Gully, (who arrived the day of Tony’s passing) and his brother Dennis V. Landi.

Tony was born and raised in western PA. He served in the US Air Force and then worked for the Central Intelligence Agency as a career senior Intelligence officer and as a government contractor before retiring to Basye, VA to enjoy his time fishing with his grandchildren, and reviving his love of art by painting, drawing and wood-carving.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, October 16, 2016 from 2:00pm-5:00pm at River Creek Club 43800 Olympic Blvd., Leesburg, VA 20176.  In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and his local hospice, VITAS Community Connection, Tyson’s Pond II, Ste 450,1604 Spring Hill Road, Vienna, VA 22182.
