Celebrating the Life of Dr. Charles A. Landis
Dr. Landis

It is with sadness and a heavy heart that we share that Dr. A. Charles Landis passed away on the morning of Friday, January 22. Dr. Landis was a longstanding icon in our community for over 40 years. His contributions to the Tolleson Union High School District as a former superintendent and Tolleson Union High School in particular were great.

Dr. Landis arrived in Arizona in December 1978 where he became superintendent of the Tolleson Union High School District, a position he held until 1992. After three years as superintendent of the Gila Bend Unified School District, Dr. Landis returned to the valley of the sun where he served as principal of Tolleson Elementary School from 1995 to 1997.

Dr. Landis has the distinction of having the Tolleson Union High School stadium named after him; the Charles A. Landis Football Stadium. Since 1982, Dr. Landis served as a member of the Tolleson Service Committee. The annual Mickie Diaz/Charles A. Landis annual Thanksgiving dinner was one of his favorite events each year. He enjoyed being part of this annual event and welcoming all of the volunteers, staff, students, and community members to share this special day together.

He had a servant heart and was always willing to reach out to anyone in need. Dr. Landis touched countless lives as a teacher, administrator, community partner, volunteer, mentor, and colleague, as well as a friend. Dr. Landis' kindness and generosity made an impression on all who knew him. He will be greatly missed. Tolleson Union High School District shares its condolences with the Landis family. They will be in our thoughts during this difficult time.
