Lee Victor Landing, Jr.

Lee Victor Landing, Jr., passed away on July 8, 2013 after a battle with lung cancer. He was 87 years old.

Lee was born on February 24, 1926 in Plymouth, NC. After high school he moved to Washington, DC, where he met and in 1949 married Winnis Hylton. They met working as file clerks for the F.B.I. Together they moved to Greenville, NC, where Lee received his degree from East Carolina University. From there he took a job with the Federal Health Administration, which moved the couple to several different parts of the country over his 25-plus year career, including Pine Bluff, AR; Chicago, IL; Tulsa, OK; and Rocky Mount, NC.

In 1994, the couple decided to make a final move to retire to Beaufort, SC. Lee became a volunteer court bailiff for the 14th Judicial Court of South Carolina. He volunteered his services from 1994-2003.

Lee was an avid hunter and continued to hunt deer and turkey up to the last hunting season of his life. He was also an excellent dancer and enjoyed dancing any chance he got, especially the jitterbug. He also enjoyed his Hardees breakfast friends and the company of his beloved house cat, Tiger. When he was at home, he could often be found sitting in his favorite chair reading histories, doing a crossword puzzle or watching the news.

He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He is preceded in death by his wife of 52 years, Winnis Hylton Landing. He is survived by his daughter and sonin-law, Vicki and Steve Mix of Beaufort and three grandchildren; Caroline Mix Stapleton (Alex) of Washington, DC; Gracyn Mix of New York, NY; and Austin Mix. He is survived by a brother, Frank Landing (Carolyn) of Jamestown, NC and numerous beloved in-laws and nieces and nephews around the country.
