Stanley James Lane, 74, of Buckhannon, the Glady Fork community, died Thursday, February 11, 2021, at his home.
He was born on April 28, 1946, at Bull Run, Upshur County, a son of the late Everett J. and Leona Harlow Lane.
In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his wife Nadine Baudin Lane in 2007; a stillborn brother William Lane; one sister Louise June Gould; and two brothers: Leon “Rocky/Pud” Lane and Joseph “Joe” Lane.
He is survived by two daughters: Theresa and husband Bryan Samples of Buckhannon and Michele and husband Doug Estep of Fairmont; two sons: Stanley J. “Jimmy” Lane and Ivy J. Lane, both of Buckhannon; one stepson Jeremy Lachney of Richmond, VA; and nine grandchildren.
Mr. Lane was a 1964 graduate of Southeast High School in Ravenna, OH, and was a veteran of the US Navy. He spent his career as a Union Carpenter and Foreman, having worked in various states on a wide range of projects including the construction of dams and bridges. He was a talented woodworker and enjoyed making furniture for his children and grandchildren. Much of his spare time was devoted to farming, gardening, and hunting — especially turkey hunting, and he was a member of the Upshur County Farmers Market and the NRA.
In accordance with the wishes of the deceased, the body will be cremated and a private memorial service will be held at a later date.
