Alan Michael (Mick) Landmark, age 75, passed peacefully on December 21, 2018, following a courageous battle with a brain tumor. Mickey was born the second of three sons to Chris and Jessie Landmark on the family ranch in Glenwood, Idaho, on September 21, 1943. Mick’s childhood was filled with hunting and fishing with family and friends, logging with his father, and attending the one-room Glenwood schoolhouse until 8th grade. Adventures to Buffalo Hump, Pete’s Forks, Lolo Creek and down to the Maggie were cherished by all. Freshman year of high school forced the bashful boy off of the hill for the first real time. It was quite the change for the “skinny” 200-pound freshman. It didn’t take long for Mickey to become accustomed to the big city life in downtown Kamiah. He developed a love for people at this early age, and enjoyed BS-ing with anyone and everyone every chance he got his entire life. Mick could turn a five-minute walk to the post office into a three-hour gab session like no other. Excelling in football, basketball, and track, he graduated a Kamiah Kub in 1961. In the fall, he headed south as a 17- year-old freshman to Boise State Junior College on a football scholarship, starting a lifelong passion for the game. Mick was so shy that on the first day of practice he got in the very back of the equipment line, and by the time it was his turn they had ran out of helmets with facemasks, and his teammates laughingly called him Jim Thorpe. Mick jokingly said the shape of his nose never recovered. The following year he received a full football scholarship to Eastern Washington University in Cheney. He was a three-time all-American pulling guard, and was honored to be inducted as an Eagle into the college football hall of fame and to earn his degree in History. He loved his time at Eastern, cherishing the friends he met as an Eagle to the very end. (Mick would want everyone to know: EWU vs NDSU, FCS national championship game on January 5th, go Eagles!). Not ready to hang up the cleats quite yet, he spent the next 10 years of his life in the Continental Football League, in the Canadian Football League, and as a collegiate coach. He also taught History to middle schoolers in Norfolk, Virginia. Ending his football and teaching careers in the mid 70s, Mick returned to the Kamiah and began his career as an insurance agent. While on one of his “post office walks” to the Syringa Bar in 1978, he met the love of his life, Vikki Young. From day one Dad was in love with his Kamiah girl, sparking a marriage only scant weeks later that lasted 40 years. Mick and Vikki made Kamiah their lifelong home, eventually starting and running Mick Landmark Agency together and raising their two children, a son Zack and a daughter Lindsay. Mick was an amazing and supportive father. He never missed yelling at a ball game, looking after his children’s friends as if they were his own kids, and peppering everyone with a hundred questions every time he had the chance. Mick instilled within his children a love for the outdoors, an appetite for knowledge in all forms, camping, hunting, fishing, both kinds of music (country and western), cutting wood, sports, and anything and everything to do with Glenwood. A few years later Mick became a grandpa for the first time, and he now has seven grandchildren that he adored. He was a big teddy bear that prized every second he spent with them. Mick and Vikki enjoyed traveling the world together following their kids and grandkids. Frequent trips to the East coast and Europe to see everyone were highlights for Mick. Barely able to walk and ailing from the brain tumor, Mick once traveled across the country with his grandson to attend PeeWee football practices. Daily deliveries of popsicles and maple bars to the grandkids in Glenwood became the norm(much to momma Jackie’s dismay). Mick was preceded in death by his parents Chris and Jessie. He is survived by his loving wife Vikki of Kamiah; his son Zack and daughter-in-law Jackie and grandchildren Logan, Laney, Lawson, Liam, and Ledger of Kamiah; his daughter Lindsay and partner Emil and grandchildren Finn and Ethan of Zurich, Switzerland; brothers Denny of Kamiah and Jimmy of Evansville, Indiana; and many cousins and friends. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, January 5th, 2019, at the St Cathrine’s Catholic Church in Kamiah at 1:00 pm. A celebration of life will take place after the funeral at the Kamiah Hotel Bar & Grill. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in honor of Mick Landmark to the Kamiah School District, 1102 Hill Street, Kamiah ID 83536.
Mick Landmark, 75, of Kamiah, passed away Friday, December 21, 2018, at University Hospital in Seattle. Services are pending with Trenary Funeral Home in Kooskia.
