RIP: Matthew Benjamin Landry

We have lost a true Catholic geek this week.


As has been mentioned, Matt Landry had died. If you doubt his nerd cred, I’ll take pictures of his home computer network and post them. Trust me, it’s better than the computer network at whatever job you may have. But he deserves a bit of a obituary.

Matthew Benjamin Landry, Sept 5 1975 – Nov 15 2015.

Matt Landry, SysAdmin par excellence, died on Sunday, November 15th, at Community Hospital, in Munster, Indiana, after 8 months of battling cancer.

Matt was loved by literally hundreds of people, including his coworkers at Performics, as well as previous jobs, such as AT&T, HostWay, and others.

Matt was an active Catholic, participating in three different parishes — Cantius, St. Mary of the Angels and St. Thomas More — as well as being a member of the Catholic group the Apocryphals. He is also well-known in political and book circles, ranging from Baen’s Bar to the Conservative-Libertarian Fiction Alliance.

He is survived by his wife Vanessa, and his mother Camilla.

The wake and mass will be at St. Mary of the Angels, in Chicago, IL, on December 5.  The wake will be at 10 in the morning, with the funeral mass to follow. All are welcome.
