gate1.jpg (29979 bytes)     Mt. Olivet Cemetery,
in Hugo, OK.
is where the 
Frost Family
chose to have
Lane buried,
next to his friend
Freckles Brown.

     The main road of  Mount Olivet.

Mount Olivet is open
dawn to dusk
7 days a week.

Directions to Lane's grave site:

You will turn into the cemetery,
and go under the arch at the gate.
Drive down the main road
to the first road on your right.
(This road will be before you get to the office.)
Turn right.

After you turn right on the first road,
Lane's grave site will be on your left,
about 3 or 4 car lengths down the road.

In the picture below
you can see how Lane's marker,
in the shape of his World Champion belt buckle,
and his friend Freckles Brown's tall brown marker
look from the road.

The flag pole is another good mark
to look for.

baptist2.jpg (25135 bytes) First Baptist Church
Atoka, Ok.
 

On August 2, 1989,
Lane's funeral service was
held at the First Baptist Church
in Atoka, Ok.
It was thought to be large enough
to hold all the people that would
come to pay their respects to Lane.

However, Oklahoma's paper, "The Oklahoman",
estimated that
3500 people attended Lane's funeral.

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 Gus 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."

Mount Olivet is best known for it's
"Showman's Rest" area, where many
circus performers and employees are
laid to rest.

Lane Frost, Freckles Brown, and Todd Whatley

back3.jpg (194178 bytes) This is a picture of
Lane's grave site that
was taken in May 1999.

People that have been
able to visit in the past
might notice the trees
around Lane's grave, and
other graves, are being
removed.

This is to try to
stop the vandalism
that is happening in
Mount Olivet.

Even tributes
that have been
left for Lane
by his parents
have been stolen
from his grave.

Whoever took them,
I hope you don't call
yourself a fan,
or a friend!
