James Rodney Landrum

March 24, 1956 — October 26, 2022


James Rodney Landrum passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at his home while surrounded by his loving family and his faithful dog and constant companion, KENO.

Rodney was born on March 24, 1956 to (Carl James Landrum) & Gloria Mae Nelson in Kirbyville, Texas. He was a proud Baptist with a strong Christian faith.

Rodney was a captain on an offshore work boat and an offshore crew boat. He was also a heavy equipment operator for Union Pipeline, and he was an avid commercial fisherman throughout his life.

He was very happy living a quiet life spending time with his family and friends.  He loved spending mornings drinking coffee while visiting his mother and he enjoyed his evening visits with his brother Rickey and his sister-in-law Brenda while sitting on the porch telling old stories.  But most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his best friend, KENO.
Rodney loved fishing and recently, he was able to enjoy a couple of fishing trips with his long-time friend LaNell Dynes and his brother Rickey.  One of these trips was a very special trip with several cousins that Rickey organized for Rodney.
He had a witty sense of humor and often used it to deal with the hard knocks of life and also to tease his sisters every chance he got.

He was a loving father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, nephew cousin and friend.

He is preceded in death by his father, James Landrum, and his youngest brother, Randy Landrum.  

Rodney is survived by his mother, Gloria Landrum, one son, BJ Sullivan, one daughter, Michelle  Binford & husband Howard, siblings; one brother, Rickey Landrum & wife Brenda, three sisters, Pami  Boozer & husband Russ, Tina Landrum and Rhonda Kaye Landrum & partner Tamra, five grandchildren; MyRanda Means, Logan and Rebecca Sullivan, Tiffany Watson and Grady Herren, two great-grandchildren; Bradlee Hill and Zooey Watson, one nephew, Trey Broadway & fiancé Christina, one niece, Kristal Landrum and one great nephew, Anthony Griffin and numerous friends and other relatives.
