Dave Jones-Landry Memorial Fund

$17,820 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 166 people in 50 months
Active 20-30 Santa Rosa #50 is asking all the members of Active 20-30 to help out a Past Active and his family in their time of need. 

Dave Jones-Landry is a past president of Santa Rosa #50 (Spring 2012) and a last year was recognized at our 85th Annual Gala as a Past Active member.  Dave was only in the club for approximately 6 years, but in that time exemplified what it meant to serve the children of Sonoma County.  Dave was dedicated to the Club and his passion was putting on work projects that directly benefitted kids.  To that end, he chaired Challenger Little League, Children’s Museum BBQ, the Roseland Playground work project and several Kids’ Street Learning Center work projects.  When he aged out of the Club, Dave kept on helping by serving on the Board for the Kid’s Street Learning Center.

What many people don’t know was that Dave’s passion for helping kids came from his own experience as a child that suffered a bout with lymphoma that left Dave’s heart with some lasting damage.  Several years ago Dave needed to have a pacemaker installed to help regulate his heart.  About three months ago, it was discovered that Dave’s heart valves were failing and needed to be replaced immediately.  Dave underwent emergency surgery to replace the valves.

Unfortunately, Dave’s recovery has not gone well.  Dave suffered from an infection after the surgery and now he needs to have surgery again to replace the heart valves and the pacemaker.  In addition, due to the massive antibiotics needed to fight the infection, Dave’s kidneys and liver nearly shut down.  He is currently in the ICU at UCSF and will likely be there for the foreseeable future.

Dave is married and has two little girls, Farah (5) and Daisy (2).  Last year, Dave’s wife Elise had a cancer scare and went through surgery.  Santa Rosa #50 “passed the hat” and and provided meals to help the family through that difficult time.  This crisis is much more severe.  Dave is the primary breadwinner and has been out of work for several months.  His recovery will likely take six months to a year. 

Santa Rosa #50 is reaching out to all the members of our 20-30 family to help this Past Active member.  We have set a modest goal of $2030 to help them out, but our hope is to significantly exceed that amount.  Any amount will help us reach our goal.  Thank you.

Yours In Service,

We are heartbroken by last night's loss of Past Active Member, Past President Spring 2012 and our brother, Dave Jones-Landry. He was a outstanding man, loving father and caring husband. He leaves behind his wife Elise along with their two daughters; 5 year-old Farah and 2 Year-old Daisy.

We have revised the campaign to help the family with memorial costs and other expenses in their time of need. Please share this and keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

I want to thank everyone that has donated to Dave Jones-Landry. Dave underwent surgery this week and is still facing a long road on his recovery. They were seriously discussing amputating his leg at one point due to a circulation issue and stress to the heart but some minor surgery and they think they saved it for now. They also waking him up from his induced coma as they feel him being awake will now help speed recovery. Long road ahead as he learns to walk again and rebuild his atrophied muscles.

Since we have had such a positive response to the campaign, I am going to bump up our goal total to $5000. The family can use all they help that they can get in the next few months. Thank you

Dave Jones Landry was an enormously generous individual, giving of his time and of himself to everyone he came into contact with. His children and his wife were his world, yet he made time for so many others without sacrificing what he cherished most. What this community is doing for the family in his absence is something Dave would have been a part of had it been someone else. This father and hardworking man will be sorely missed in the community. Thank you to all.
