Lane was born in Wawanesa, Manitoba on December 12, 1956. At the time his family resided in Wabowden, where his father was stationed with the RCMP. He was proud to say that he started his life in Wabowden. They lived in many communities throughout Manitoba and upon completion of high school in Swan River, Lane attended the Maritime Forest Ranger School in Fredericton, New Brunswick and received a diploma as a Forest Technician. He returned to Manitoba and began his career with the Manitoba Conversation experiencing many transfers and postings all over the province. In 1986, he married his wife of 36 years. Their first adventure of many as a married couple took them to Yellowknife, NT where Lane had been chosen for a reciprocal officer program with the NT government. Three weeks prior to leaving Yellowknife, their first daughter Bayley arrived. He returned to his position in Manitoba and resided with his young family in Boissevain. In early 1990, Ainslee arrived to complete their family. His next posting took him to Cranberry Portage, where they lived for 3 years, followed by 4 years in Grand Rapids. In 1997, they moved to Thompson, where he resided until his passing. Prior to his retirement at the end of 2012, he had a brief posting in Killarney and then finished his career in Leaf Rapids. During these final work years, he commuted back and forth to his home in Thompson, while his wife continued to work at her career.
In his retirement, Lane continued to enjoy his fishing, trapping and all things nature. He took great pride in sharing his knowledge and educating the young people about trapping, fishing, and wildlife. He was passionate about the north and enjoyed showing anyone who showed an interest. He also enjoyed traveling to warmer climates for winter vacations where he would scuba dive and deep-sea fish.
Lane’s pride and joy were his grandchildren. He wanted nothing more than to be a grandpa and was blessed with four beautiful grandchildren. Despite his health issues, Lane remained a strong, independent and determined man who did not let his health concerns get in the way. Lane will be remembered for his witty ways, his love for fishing and trapping and all his little life lessons to others. Susan, Bayley, Ainslee and families would like to thank everyone for the support and kindness shown to all of us and for the sharing of “Lane Memories” by so many.
In honoring Lane’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there is no service scheduled at this time. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, www.heartandstroke.ca, in his memory.
