Landrey, junior member of the firm of Strock &, Landrey, men's furnishing goods, is one of the enterprising, and capable business men of Troy and one who has worked his own way to success. Mr. Landrey has spent his entire life at Troy where he was born, and belongs to an old and honored, family of this community, his grandfather having been the first constable of the village. His parents were John and Viroma (Hopkins) Landrey, natives of this place, Who had four children: Martha, Mamie, John W. and, one who died in infancy. The public schools of Troy furnished John W. Landrey with his educational training, and when he put aside his schoolbooks he entered life on his own account. His introduction to business affairs came through his employment as a clerk in a shoe store and that continued to be his status during a period of fourteen years, in which he assimilated many of the principles of sound business dealing. With this experience, in 1907 he formed a partnership with Glen C. Strock, the firm of Strock & Landrey thus coming into existence. They now have a splendid patronage, built up through honorable methods. Mr. Landrey married Edith, daughter of Albert Brunse, of Troy, and they have one child, Richard. Mr. Landrey is a member of the Knights of Pythias and the Odd Fellows, and was a generous contributor to all war movements.
