Eric J. Landers, a New Canaan architect, passed away at his Norwalk home on Saturday March 1, 2014 with his family by his side. He was 68.

Born in New York City, Sept. 11, 1945, he was the son of the late Manfred and Fira Barshak Landers.  

Mr. Landers studied architecture at Pratt University in Brooklyn, NY. He then moved to London where he lived for eight years. He moved to New Canaan in 1979 where he established his architectural firm Robertson and Landers Architects with long-time friend Malcolm Robertson. He practiced architecture for more than 35 years. 

He loved to play with video and could always be seen with a video camera in his hand. From artistic expressions as a young adult and then documenting his life as a father, husband and friend. He was also a wonderful illustrator. Sometimes precise but often times quirky with a dry sense of humor. Every year his illustrated Christmas cards would be sent to all his friends and family, signed with his signature banana peel. 

He is survived by his wife Monika S. Landers; his daughter, Danika Landers of New York City; one son, Christopher Landers and his wife Samantha of Weymouth, MA and a brother, Jon Landers of Danbury.
A memorial visitation will be held from 1 to 4 p.m., Saturday, March 15, at the Hoyt Funeral Home, 199 Main St., New Canaan. Interment will be private.

A memorial service will be held at the United Methodist Church in New Canaan at a later date and will be announced. 

In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to the United Methodist Church, 165 South Ave., New Canaan, CT 06840.
