“Let no man despise thy youth: but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Timothy 4:12).
Landan Micai Williams was born on March 27, 2008, in Baton Rouge, to Prinavia Williams and Hosea Veals.
Landan, as he was so affectionately called, departed his earthly life on July 31, 2022, at Children’s Hospital in New Orleans.
Landan was an adventurous young lad who, although short-lived, enjoyed his life to the fullest (a trait he genetically inherited from his mother). He was an A/B honor roll student, and enjoyed playing his Playstation, dancing, texting, and being among his family and friends as the life of the event (another, mother-gained characteristic).
Though Lan’s days were brief, the memories that were captured will forever be cherished by: his father, Hosea Veals; his siblings, Dalon, Kori, Gavin, Chayston and Brayden Veals; his maternal grandfather, Luther Charles Spikes; his paternal grandfather, Bruce Veals; his paternal grandmother, Linda Modica; his guardian uncle, Luther (Keonta) Peters; five uncles, Benjamin and Lonnie Holmes, William (Jade) Foster III, Cedrick Whitfield and Luther Spikes; three aunts, Andriane Veals, Chiquita Whitfield and Chelsey Payne; his maternal great-grandmother, Juanita Spikes; a godbrother, Eugene Harry IV; and a host of great-aunts, great-uncles, cousins, relatives and friends.
Landan was preceded in death by his mother, Prinavia Williams; his maternal grandmother, Priscilla Williams; a bonus grandmother, Shon Peters Spikes; his uncle, Montrell Jackson; maternal great-grandmother, Dorothy Williams Smith; maternal great-grandfather, Amos (Bennie Ruth) Spikes; and paternal great-grandfather, Leon Lewis.
The funeral service will be Saturday, Aug. 13, at 12:30 p.m. at New Beginnings, located at 62075 Seal Road in Angie. Bishop Dausha Spikes will be officiating. Interment will be in the Live Oak Cemetery.
