"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is
laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: . . .
II Timothy 4:7-8
He has lived well; laughed often and loved much; he served God with all his heart, mind and soul; he encouraged and always looked for the best in others, he has extended a helping hand to people in need; he has opened his heart to many; he has been an inspiration and his memory will always be a sweet embrace.
Anthony Jennorise Landy affectionately known as "Amp Boy" and "Big Daddy" was born on April 12, 1969 to Rose Mae Landy and Vernoy Livingston in Aiken County, South Carolina. He completed his high school education at Wagener Salley High School. He received an associate's degree in Ministry from the Seminary in Thomasboro, Georgia.
At an early age he accepted the Lord as his personal savior and joined the Chalk Hill Baptist Church. He later moved his fellowship to New Testament under Pastor Burton and then it became New Beginnings Outreach Ministry under Pastor Curtis Scholfield. Upon relocating to Charlotte he joined in fellowship with the Mallard Creek Full Gospel Worship Center under Overseer Billy Joel Gore.
Anthony was a lover of music, prayer, worship and God's word. He was a prayer warrior and he had deep faith in God to do whatever he said he would. He was one who believed in serving God to the fullest even when his health was not the best. He was one who never complained even when the things got too much to bear. He was faithful in his service to the Lord, as a Sunday School Teacher, he worked diligently with the youth, teaching bible study, preaching, singing and teaching God's Word, he was a visionary, just a man after God's own heart.
Anthony worked several years beginning right out of high school, first starting at Sunbird Boat Company. He then began working for the South Carolina Department of Corrections and later began as a Corporal and then retiring from his years of service as a Sergeant for the Edgefield Police Department in Edgefield, South Carolina.
He was united in holy matrimony to Nicole Boone and in this union they were blessed to share in the joy of three daughters.
It was 6:30 a.m. on the morning of August 15, 2011 the angel of silence came and sealed the life of Prophet Anthony Landy. His soul winged its flight from this world of sin, sorrow and pain to that place that had been promised as his reward . He leaves to unite with and meet those who preceded him in death; his grandfather Mr. Grady "Sonny Boy Livingston", his aunts Lorene, Kathryn, and Janet; his uncles Jimmy, Grady, Ronnie, Albert and Elbert; his mother and father in-law Roy and Emma Boone.

O' Lord we have lived this day to bury the one we love. Our
gratitude is a full as our grief, and our peace is as deep as our pain
~All Because of YOU~
We need you as never before. Please shepherd our souls
through these dry and heavy days.
You send us to this earth for a season and then you receive
us again unto Yourself. We somehow understand this cycle but we weren't
Quite as ready to let go of this one as we thought we'd be. All our
Lives we have been taught and we have known that someday this could happen,
but the finality and reality of it are piercing.
One thing we do know is that death cannot
kill love and human hands can't bury it. So on this, our loved one's resurrection
day, we give you praise and honor for a life well lived.
The Landy family will be accepting guests at the J.H. Robinson Funeral Home, 190 Railroad ave., Wagener, SC on Saturday, August 20, 2011 from 5 to 7 pm.
