Des Moines

Timothy George Watland was born August 30, 1952, in Des Moines, Iowa, to George and Charlene (Knight) Watland. He was a wonderful father and grandfather. Timothy had a great sense of humor. He was very goofy and his huge laugh could fill a room. Timothy was always someone you could count on. He lived life to its fullest and made every day the best. He was an avid sports fan and enjoyed drawing.

Timothy passed away Tuesday, September 5, 2017, at the age of 65.

He leaves behind his daughter, Brianna Watland; granddaughter, Delilah; siblings, Michael (Mary) Watland, Patrick (Debra) Watland, Bridget (Victor) Wilson, and Jim Watland; and many other extended family and friends.
