Brian John Landgraf, 38, conquered death and was called home to our heavenly Father on April 16, 2018. Brian fought a courageous 2 plus year battle with an aggressive blood cancer. His devotion to his family and his firm belief in God supported him in his struggle and ultimately gave him peace.

Brian was born to Steve and Shelley Landgraf, in St. Paul, MN on November 1, 1979. Brian graduated from Park High School, class of ‘98, and Dunwoody College of Technology. He worked for the electrical workers union 110 until he was diagnosed.
Brian married his best friend Beth, on August 14, 2010 in De Pere, WI. They were blessed with two beautiful boys, Sam (6) and Jack (3). Brian loved taking Sam fishing whether it was for Northerns in Canada, bass in Wisconsin, or sunnies down the road from their home on Fish Lake. Just as much he loved taking Jack four wheeling, wrestling with him on the living room floor, and reading him books. Brian loved the outdoors and enjoyed pheasant hunting with his dog, his brother, Luke, and his hunting buddies.
Brian is survived by his wife, Beth; his sons Sam and Jack; his parents Steve and Shelley; his grandmother Mary; his sisters Stacy and Leigh (Paul Lasky); his brother Luke (Carissa); and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws.
