February 20, 1950 - May 11, 2017
Our beloved Brother Roy Hudson Lansing, 67, fell asleep in the Lord on Thursday, May 11th, 2017, surrounded by his family. His devotion to his family and his firm belief in God supported him in his struggle and ultimately gave him peace, resting assured in the hope of our Lord’s soon return to this earth. Roy was born to the late Hudson and Patricia Lansing. Having spent his early years out west, during his high school years, Roy’s family eventually settled in Mayfield Heights, Ohio. There he met his best friend and high school sweetheart, Elizabeth Lansing whom he married on July 31, 1971. Roy was a faithful member and supporter of the Church of the Blessed Hope (Church of the Abrahamic Faith) in Chesterland, Ohio. He was an ambassador for Christ holding a passion for mission work at home and abroad. He spent many years doing frequent mission trips to Jamaica, donating time and funding to the poor and needy while devoting himself in the church community that became his lifelong support.
“Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.” Isaiah 1:17
Roy was blessed with a large and loving family. He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Lansing (Titman), and his children: Jesse Lansing (Devone), Sarah Lansing, Rebekah Ross (James), Lydia Panchyson (Darryl), Deanna Scott (Lynn) and Eric Boone. He was a beloved grandfather to eleven grandchildren: Sadie, Josie, Adelaide, and Jed Lansing; James, Teagan, Ireson (John), and Jair Ross; Phoebe and Eli Panchyson; Ben Scott, and his new grand-dog “Ransom” Lansing. He is also survived by his brother Dan Lansing (Salmon, Idaho). Roy had a love of colorful, vibrant, fun-festive print shirts. His family refers to them as “Grandpa” shirts. In his honor, please feel free to wear one of these types of shirts to his celebration of life!
