|Landon James Druecker, seven months, of Elkader entered heaven on Friday, December 31, 2010, at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City. He was born May 20, 2010, at Guttenberg Municipal Hospital to Bryan and Jennifer (Foels) Druecker. Landon was baptized on December 30, 2010, in the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics
During Landon's short time here he loved playing with his toys with sister Caitlyn, loved music and being held by his family. He spent many weekends camping with family and friends, and Landon loved tagging along with mom on the farm.
At four months of age Landon was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Over the next three months Landon bravely endured seven surgeries and spent most of his time under the care of the gracious doctors, nurses and his father and mother who never left his side. Landon gave a lifetime of joy to his family and friends in the short amount of time he had.
Besides his parents Landon is survived by his sister, Caitlyn at home; his paternal grandparents, Ron and Diane Druecker of Elkader; maternal grandparents, Ron and Donna Foels of Elkader; aunts, Kristin (Mace) Klingman of Strawberry Point, Amy Foels of Elkader and Tara Foels of North Liberty and cousins, Parker and Keaton Klingman.
