Landyn was a junior at Millington High School where he loved his high school activities.  His passion for football was obvious as a young kid and continued to grow.  As a junior, Landyn helped take his team to the playoffs as the starting fullback for the Millington Cardinals Varsity Football Team in 2020.  Landyn’s next passion was spending time with his true love, Dylan Holmes.  Landyn also enjoyed riding dirt bikes, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, and spending time with friends and family, which includes his best friend and brother Waylon and also Issac Slough. 

Landyn was taken away from the people who loved him dearly all too soon, and will be missed by many, but will never be forgotten.  Forever in our hearts, until we meet again.  We love you Landyn!
