William “Ralph” Landers was born March 10, 1932 in Griffin, Georgia. He is preceded in death by his parents, Robert Allen Landers and Nellie Carden Landers; sister, Daphne Moore; grandchildren, Lloyd Lawrence, Loren Lawrence, Danny Poole.
He was a true man of God and looked after his wife with such love and care until he could not physically care for her. We have her now.
PawPaw as he was affectionately known too all the kids always had peppermint in his pocket.
He always enjoyed company and could talk your ears off. Enjoy the release from the pain, daddy.
He loved his family and was always there for them and anyone else that needed him.
The vast amount of knowledge he had was always shared to always help through with any situation or just because he felt you needed to be prepared.
He was always happy to be on his tractor, riding his horse “Ponch” or generally working on the farm. Such a horse and goat trader he was.
Along with family surrounding him as he crossed to be with Jesus was his little dog “Rufus”.
Enjoy the release from the pain, daddy.
