Landon was born February 17, 2012 in Fort Smith, AR to Troy Derik Downey and Ashlie Elizabeth Prentice. He departed from this earthly life on Friday, January 8, 2021 in Oklahoma City, OK to be in his heavenly home.

Our sweet Landon's life brought us the goodness and innocence of God. Everyone who knew him saw that he was wise beyond his years. He loved his family and never wanted to spend a night without them and he didn't. We are so, so blessed to have known him. Through his going home to be with the Lord, he has touch and forever changed our lives in countless ways. Landon loved fishing, singing and being a gamer. Where we are he can't come but where he is we can go one day. We pray we live a life that he would be proud of until we meet him again in Glory.

Preceding him in death are his great grandparents, Leona and Donald Sisco; and great aunt Terri Wright.
