After semi-retiring, he worked at Culvers in Fargo until he fully retired. He attended a special Sunday School at Bethel Evangelical Free Church in Fargo. Lane enjoyed the Beach Boys, Batman, Frasier, Ghost Busters 2, traveling, attending car shows with his brother Gayle, McDonalds, Taco John’s, diet Mt.
