 Dwayne Ronald Lane

Dwayne Ronald Lane

November 17, 1967 - December 30, 2019

On December 30, 2019 Dwayne Ronald Lane, age 52 left the pain of this world behind for the loving embrace of our Heavenly Father. He is preceded into heaven by his older brother Michael Allen Lane. Many family members survive him: Olinda Lane (wife) and family, Devin Lane (son) and family, Ronald and Nancy Lane (parents), siblings Roianne McDaniel and family, Joseph Lane and family, Randall Lane, and David Lane and family.

  As we celebrate his eternal home with Jesus, we can also look back at the lives he richly touched and be thankful for the time we had with him. Many of us would tell you that he was a generous spirit, so willing to sacrifice his own personal time and money to help those in need.  Whenever someone called with a need, he would be there, often to great personal detriment to himself.  When he did find time to himself, he enjoyed hunting and spending time with family and friends.

  The family will receive friends for his memorial service on Friday, January 10, 2020 at  2:00 PM at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church at 3703 Riverwatch Pkwy, Martinez, GA 30907. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that memorial contributions be made to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church referencing “Dwayne Lane Memorial Fund”.

  Family and friends will miss him dearly and forever be thankful for our time with him. We look forward to the day we will be together again.
