Landen Wyatt Moreland, 21, was called home leaving his earthly world way to soon, riding off into the sunset in God’s heavenly hands in Rosebud County.
Landen was born on November 29, 1997 in Miles City, Montana to his mama Stacie Barnes Negathon and father, Bill Moreland and grew up in Hysham, Montana where he spent most of his life. Always the nomad, he spent a little time here and there, but in Landen’s heart, Hysham was his home. Landen loved spending time with his cousins, friends, and family. He was a little brother to Tylor Watson and big brother to Larisah Moreland. Landen was never too old to cuddle his mom, value his father’s advice, look up to his older brother, and protect and tease his little sister.
Landen had three boys, Angel, Ledger, and Lincoln. He loved his boys with all his heart. His eyes lit up talking about them; he was so excited to teach them the cowboy way and how to have a good work ethic, responsibilities and respect. Landen’s ability to work hard was a huge part of him.
He was our cowboy from the very beginning, born face first, ready to face the world. To his first pair of wore out cowboy boots to the well-used straw hat that was on his head, Landen loved the cowboy way loving the lay of the land. From the time he was young, his dad Bill taught him to drive tractors and help with the haying.
Landen loved breaking horses, saddle broncs, and was so excited about starting his own fencing business, following his father’s footsteps and being the best that he could be. He had a contagious laugh and ability to light up a room with his energetic personality. He had a natural kindness and lived to help anyone who needed it. Landen enjoyed making his own gourmet hamburgers and thought they should be on the best sellers list in a restaurant. He enjoyed braiding, wood work, fishing, hunting, working but most of all, he enjoyed being with Trinity and his boys, the true loves of his life. He told us to give him time cause with his imagination; he was going to be the next Albert Einstein.
He cared so deeply for his family and friends never wanting too much time to go by so he could check on each and every one who was on his mind, sometimes that meant driving for hours just to make sure everyone was okay and giving them a helping hand. Grannie Robbie was definitely Landen’s biggest fan and his protective armor; he was so excited to build and repair anything she needed done, especially proud of the screen door he put on for her. Landen so loved by all of his grandparents he had a special bond and love for each.
Landen is survived by his mother Stacie Barnes Negathon (Matthew), father Bill Moreland (Roxeanne), brother Tylor Watson, sister Larisah, step siblings Kia, Peyton, Listy, and Baylee, Ray, Naomi, and Ethan, the love of his life Trinity, his three boys, Angel, Ledger, and Lincoln grandparents, aunts, uncles and many cousins.
He was proceeded in death by his cousin, friend, and mentor Shad Duane Schaak.
