Lane's Story

After Cheyenne

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lane's Funeral

The same grey skies
that were over Lane in Cheyenne
seemed to have followed him south to Oklahoma.

Only this time it was like the heavens wept
along with the mourners, as rain poured down the day of his funeral.

On August 2, 1989, Lane's funeral was held at the
First Baptist Church in Atoka, OK.,

and then Lane was laid to rest at Mount Olivet Cemetery in Hugo, OK.,
near his good friend Freckles Brown.

Oklahoma's paper, "The Oklahoman", estimated that
3500 people attended Lane's funeral on
Wednesday, August 2, 1989,
at the First Baptist Church in Atoka, OK.

1200 filled the pews and aisles of the church
and its adjacent auditorium,
and the rest of the mourners stood outside in the rain,
listening to the service over loudspeakers.

The former state legislator and rodeo announcer
Clem McSpadden, in his eulogy about Lane said,

"He had one great quality that separates him
from much of this generation today.

He knew no greed.

To the people he baled hay with in Choctaw County,
and the people he worked cattle with, he was just what he was.

He had goals that far exceeded a championship buckle,
and today he wears the buckle of immortality."


The Rev. Willard Moody of Roswell, N.M. said that Lane
was one of the many rodeo cowboys that "get to know Jesus"
(Lane was a born-again Christian.)


He also remarked on the vast age differences
of the mourners at the service who were Lane's acquaintances.
"Lane knew no age limits
or boundaries when it came to making friends."

Lane's friends,
Tuff Hedeman, Jim Sharp, Cody Lambert,
Clint Branger, Wes Ward, and Guy Sartin
served as pallbearers.

After the service, Lane was taken to Hugo, OK., about 45 miles from Atoka, 
and laid to rest at Mount Olivet Cemetery, 
next to his friend and mentor, Freckles Brown.

"When I have to think of Lane there,
I like to think of Freckles there with him."
