Obituary for Louis G. Lansdown

Louis Glenwood Lansdown was born May 14, 1940 to the late Charles and Virginia Lansdown in Loudoun County Virginia. "Smitty", affectionately called by family and friends, received his formal education through the Loudoun County Public School System, where he excelled in sports.
At an early age, Smitty loved playing baseball with the local baseball teams and you could count on a home run or two, or three! He was dubbed as one of the hardest hitters in Northern Virginia.
He was employed with the Giant Food Corporation, where he served dutiful for several years before he retired on disability in 1978. Not one to keep still, Smitty became a handy man of all trades and took pride in his work. In leisure, he loved experimenting with making his infamous unique fruit wines, a great card game, coordinating several trips for family and friends to enjoy the casinos or horse races, cooking and baking his famous cakes and of course visiting his second home, Rosecroft Raceway—he loved harness “buggy” horse racing.
Smitty enjoyed helping others and spending time with his family. He had a very loving relationship with his wife of 31 years, Ruth and adored his special relationship with his two daughters, Smitty’s Girls; Colleen, the “Big Daughter” and Garlene the “Baby Girl”. He cherished his relationship with his siblings and fostered a special relationship with his nieces and nephews.
Smitty accepted Christ as his Savior with Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church of Aldie, Virginia, where he served as a faithful member and who truly loved the Lord.
With his wife Ruth at his side, Smitty departed this life on Monday, December 1, 2014 at the St. Francis Hospital in Chesterfield, Virginia.  
Smitty is preceded in death by two brothers, Charles Lansdown, Jr., and Donald Maurice Lansdown, and one sister Virgie Lansdown.
He leaves to cherish his loving memories his wife Ruth Ellen Lansdown; two daughters, Colleen Ingram and Garlene Lansdown; one son-in-law Donald Ingram Jr.; five devoted children by love, Andre Marshall, Godwin Marshall, Juan Marshall, JoLita Marshall and Joseph Marshall; long-time friend, Judy Marshall; three devoted nephews-in-law Curtis Epes Sr., Curtis Epes Jr. and Kenneth Epes; two sisters Barbara (John) Robinson and Charlene (John) Simmons; one brother Lionel (Joyce) Lansdown; one god-child, Tyree Thompson and 17 grandchildren, 5 great-grand children, nieces, nephews, cousins and many devoted friends in Aldie, Falls Church and many parts of Maryland.
