Sonny Landsberg, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away peacefully on May 26, 2022 at the age of 98. Sonny was born in Dallas, Texas on October 1, 1923 to Rose and Max Landsberg, of blessed memory. He lived in Dallas for 95 years, before moving to Houston to be near his children and their families. Sonny was married to his beloved wife Shirley Rabicoff Landsberg for 71 years. Everyone who met them could see the love between them. Shirley and Sonny were members of Temple Emanu-El in Dallas for over 62 years.

He was preceded in death by his cherished daughter, Marilyn Landsberg Steiner, and his sister Lena Rothschild and her husband Bernard. Sonny is survived by his daughter Sandy Burke and her husband Lucky, his son-in-law Dan Steiner and his wife Patti.

"Popsy," as he was lovingly called by all of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, is also survived by his seven grandchildren and their spouses, Stacey Burke and her husband Joshua Reiss, Allison Wise and her husband Philip, Adam Burke and his wife Sylvia, Laurie Pickei and her husband Ross, Scott Steiner and his wife Lauren, Zach Savrick and his wife Marissa, and Carson Savrick and her wife Katy. Sonny and Shirley were very blessed to have thirteen great-grandchildren, Rina Miriam and Ayala Presley, Laine and Burke Wise, Max, Lucy, and Ryan Burke, Morgan and Tanner Pickei, Mason and Kennedy Steiner, and Eve and Stella Savrick. Sonny and Shirley considered their beloved great-grandchildren a special bonus in their lives. They loved being able to spend time with their children, grandchildren, and great­children and always said how fortunate they were to share this blessing together.

Sonny is also survived by his brother Jerry Landsberg and his wife Gloria, his sister-in-law Jackie Cooper and her husband Marvin, his brother-in-law Mendy Rabicoff and his wife Natalie, as well as many nieces and nephews who were a very important part of his life.

Our family would like to thank Marsha Cayton, Stephanie Barrocas, and The Medallion Assisted Living Residence staff, as well as Bobby Johnson and her team of caregivers who took such loving care of Sonny.

Sonny's life will be celebrated at a graveside service at Emanu El Memorial Park, 8341 Bissonnet Street, Houston, Texas 77074, at 11:00 am on Tuesday, May 31, 2022. If you would like to view the service please use the following link:
