Stanton L. Landis

            Stanton L. Landis passed away peacefully surrounded by his children on

Saturday, July 30, 2022, at Peter Becker Community in Harleysville, PA at the age of 84.  He was preceded in death by his wife Cleta F. Landis two weeks ago on July 16.

            A lifelong resident of Harleysville, Stan was one of eight children born to the late Dayton C  and Mattie H. (Landes) Landis.  He married his wife, Cleta, in 1957 and they celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary this year. Together they raised three children: Scott, Karen, and Sharon.

             He started his career driving for Guy Heavener and then went to Keller's Creamery. He then headed the Dispatch for North Penn Transfer. Stan went on to drive truck for Hatfield Quality Meats and lead the Dispatch and Transportation teams before his retirement. In his spare time, he enjoyed motorcycle rides, transporting the Hatfield Meats antique truck around the country and enjoyed many parades and awards.

            Once retired, Stan continued to drive part time for Hatfield Quality Meats and Clemens Uniform. They enjoyed their winters at their home in Sarasota, FL. It was here that Stan and Cleta spent many years playing shuffleboard, going out to eat, and watching the sunset on their favorite beach and spending time with many of their cherished friends. During the summer he enjoyed swimming in the pool with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

            Stan is survived by his children: Scott and Lisa Landis of Sellersville, Sharon Kucharski of Bechtelsville, and Karen Detwiler of Red Hill; grandchildren: Tiffany Reber (Andrew), Allison Koffel (John), Jay Kucharski (Mary), Alex Detwiler (DeAnna), Kristin Schuster (Carl), David Kucharski, Eric Landis (Amanda), and Leanne Kucharski, and seven great grandchildren with two more expected this Fall. He is also survived by one sister, Mary Leatherman.. In addition to his wife Cleta and his parents, he was also preceded in death by an infant son, five brothers, Dayton Landis Jr., Heber, Floyd, Henry, and Mark, and a sister, Minerva Godshall.

            A memorial service will be held for Stanton and Cleta Landis at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 3104 Main Street, Green Lane, PA 18054, at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, August 19, 2022. Prior to the service, the family will receive friends from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
