Lane was a sweet little boy who brought joy and happiness to every life he touched. Every day he was helping his mom and dad with the farm animals while riding on the ATV. He loved listening to music, watching and listening to YouTube and playing video games with his brother Trevor. Some evenings you could find Lane riding a sheep or a calf at the rodeo arena while under the watchful eye of his parents.
Lane enjoyed the beach with his family and watching the ocean waves lap over his feet. He fought many battles in his short life and was a true fighter until the very end. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
