1947-2014

James Marlin Land, 67, of Seguin, Texas, passed away Wednesday, June 18, 2014.

Visitation was held Monday, June 23, from 5-7 p.m. in the Tres Hewell Mortuary in Seguin.

A funeral service was held Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. in the First United Methodist Church in Seguin, with the Rev. Scott Jones and the Rev. Bill Knobles officiating.

Interment followed in the Dugger Cemetery in Guadalupe County.

A reception followed in the Christian Life Center at First United Methodist Church.

James was born and raised in Seguin. He graduated from Seguin High School in 1965 and continued his education at Southwest Texas State University. Upon graduation in 1969, he completed a Bachelor of Science degree in biology with a minor in chemistry, and satisfied the requirements for a Texas teaching certificate.

After enlisting in the National Guard, he taught in the Stockdale ISD and the Smiley ISD, then spent the remaining 31 years of his career at La Vernia ISD, where he retired in 2008.

James’ passion in life was hunting. He spent much of his leisure time in the fields and brush of South Texas.

He was a man of honor who believed strongly in education and the simple truths that could be learned from hard work. He taught many young people about science, but more importantly about character and discipline.

In much the same way, James’ family was extremely important in his life. He worked tirelessly to model integrity, honesty, and love to all those who knew him as a husband, father, grandfather, and friend.

He was a member of the Stockdale Masonic Lodge No. 470 AF&AM.

James was preceded in death by his son, Timothy Wayne Land; his parents, Cleatus Land and Doris Seay Nevins; a brother, Frank Howard Land; and his parents-in-law, Prentice and Ella Mae Adams.

Survivors include his loving wife of 46 years, Sandra “Sandy” Land; a daughter, Stacie Land; sons Shane Land and wife Tashi, and Wade Land and wife Morgan; grandchildren Tyler, Jake, Maddison, and Luke Land, Reece, Jillian, and Andrew Land, and Ashland, Allison, and Aubree Newberg; sisters Connie Green and husband Johnnie, and Candee Land; a brother, Gordon Land and wife Natalie; brother-in-law Jim Adams; sisters-in-law Kim McKeown and husband Mike and Lynnda Hunsaker and husband Brion; several aunts and uncles; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins; and a host of friends.

Serving as pallbearers were John Becka, David Anderson, Bill Hoermann, Bubba Allen, Gary Boyd, Alexander Smith, Josh Coleman, and Hilmar “Red” Cowey Jr. Honorary pallbearers were George Becka Sr., Luis Chapa, Wayne Hester, Denny Dubose, David Young, Joe Tiner, and Terry Ruddock.

May God rest his soul.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, c/o Jeanette Siltmann, 196 Townesend Road, Seguin, TX 78155; or to the charity of one’s choice.
