About Patrick Landers
Born on August 29, 1973, in
Washington, DC, Patrick Landers grew up in the nearby suburb Bethesda, MD.
After college, Patrick moved to San Francisco where he began his lifelong
career with his beloved Giants. He married his wife Christine Patterson
September 20th, 2003. An Eagle Scout, Olympic torch-bearer for the 1996
Atlanta Games and marathon runner, Patrick's adventurous spirit and
mischievous grin infected all those around him. Not just an employee, but a
fervid fan of the Giants, thankfully he got to celebrate the 2010 World
Series Championship with his adopted city and work family. His love for
sports ran second only to his love and devotion to his family and friends. A
proud, loyal, and loving husband and father, Patrick leaves behind his wife,
Christine Patterson Landers; two sons Aidan (6) and Ty (3) whom he loved
more than anything, sisters Mary Margaret Landers and Kathryn Marie Knowles,
parents John Jay and Mary Theresa, nieces Emma and Lindsay Nie, his beloved
dog, Carter, and countless friends in the US and Canada. During his
year-long battle with cancer, Patrick demonstrated strength, courage,
bravery, and taught us to live every moment of life to its fullest. He will
forever be our hero.
