Landon started his entry into this world much like he lived his life, on his own time and in his own way. He was born September 21, 1999 in Madison, SD, to Sidney & Janet (Virchow) Gulbranson.  Landon graduated from Madison High School in 2017.  Landon had several jobs throughout his years. He was always searching for the right job for him. During high school, he worked at 2nd Street Diner where he got to pursue his love of cooking. He then worked at Raven Industries to save up enough money to buy his Jeep. His final job was working at Jack’s Meat Market where he seemed to have a passion as a meat cutter and truly enjoyed the people he worked with.  


Landon had a strong love for his cat, Shadow, who was with him from 2007-2019.  She was always there to brighten his day. His pride was his collection of historical guns and his Jeep, which he enjoyed driving while listening to music. His hobbies were many as Landon liked experiencing everything. He enjoyed skiing, snowmobiling, riding motorcycle, kayaking, swimming, playing his bass guitar, hanging with friends and so much more.   He found a love for fitness when he started Cross Fit in hopes to get in shape for the Navy. He was able to do the hard work and meet his goals. But soon realized his desire to be home near his family was far more dear to his heart. He returned home and continue his love for working out and spent many late nights at Anytime Fitness.

Landon is survived by his father, Sid Gulbranson of Madison; mother, Janet Virchow (fiancé, Mitch Jasper) of Madison; two brothers Mason & Braxton both of Madison; maternal grandparents, David & Janelle Virchow of Arlington, SD and numerous cousins, aunts & uncles. 


Preceding him in death were his paternal grandparents, Merle & Sheron Gulbranson and great-grandma, Mavis Norgaard.
