LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Scott Landers, managing partner of the Steve Landers automotive dealerships, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, January 8th of a heart attack. 35 years old, Scott was doing what he loved, duck hunting in central Arkansas.
Born and raised in Arkansas, he graduated from Pulaski Academy in 2002 and attended Arkansas Tech University. Scott proudly followed his father’s footsteps into the car business and worked with his father, Steve, and brother, Steve, Jr., for many years before partnering with the Luther Automotive Group, headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, in 2014. Since that time, Scott successfully grew the Luther/Landers southern platform to include 7 dealerships in Arkansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
The Landers Auto Group expanded into the Joplin market in 2018 when they bought out Crossroads Chevrolet.
Scott’s family, associates, and employees greatly appreciate the outpouring of love and prayers. A Celebration of Life will be held at Immanuel Baptist Church in Little Rock, AR on Tuesday, January 14th at 11:00am. Visitation to follow.
