Peacefully and with dignity, Hubert “Dean” Garland passed away March 4, 2019 at Prairie Hills Des Moines Retirement Community at the age 93. He was reunited in heaven with God and his beloved wife Lucy, who passed away three months ago.

Dean was born December 6, 1925, to Oscar and Arbie Garland in Tingley, Iowa. He served in the United States Navy during World War II. Dean married Lucy Ellen Weeda, his childhood sweetheart on May 3, 1944 while on a 7 day leave. They were the iconic World War II American lovebirds. In 1958, they started Ford & Garland Radio with partners Henry & Bonnie Ford in Downtown Des Moines. They loved antiquing and had a booth in the Red Ribbon Antique Mall in Pella. They also enjoyed traveling. Together they had driven in every state except Alaska. He was a virtuous man with a touch of ornery, and will be remembered for his sense of humor and making everyone laugh right up to the very end. Dean was a member of Fort Des Moines United Methodist Church and VFW Post #738.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 74 years, Lucy; his parents; six siblings; and his granddaughter, Diana Vivone.
