IAC manager dies in auto crash

The manager of the shared interest groups of the American Council for Technology/Industry Advisory Group died in a car crash last week.

Patrick Landin, 26, was found dead June 9 in his car along U.S. 50 by an off-duty Fairfax County, Va., police officer. Police believe he might have driven into the back of a commercial truck, which was not on the scene when police arrived. Landin was not wearing a seat belt, Fairfax police said.

Police are asking that anyone who might have seen the crash or have any information about it, the Fairfax Police non-emergency number at (703) 691-2131.

Landin joined ACT/IAC just over a year ago and was employed full time managing the IT group's nine shared interest groups, the organization said.

"It was a new position and more than a little daunting, but Patrick possessed the critical qualities needed for success: a can-do attitude and genuine affection for the members he worked with," the group said in a statement.

Visitation will be held today from 6-7 p.m. at the Adam Green Funeral Home in Herndon, Va. The funeral will be conducted 11 a.m. Tuesday at St. Stephen the Martyr Church in Middleburg, Va.

Memorial contributions may be sent to the Homes for our Troops.
