Conner Lane, a fighter and a friend to many, passed away on Tuesday morning. Conner loved spending time with friends and family, loved going to church, loved to hunt and fish, loved the Tennessee Volunteers and always enjoyed talking politics. He had a heart of friendship and love and never failed to brighten up everyone’s day. Conner knew no stranger. He would speak to everyone and treat everyone as his own friend. His compassion and love for people stem far beyond his family and friends. He loved everyone, but more importantly, he loved the Lord. His faith in Jesus was unquestioned and the joy he received from singing and teaching about the Lord was exuberant.
Conner Lane gained his robe of white Tuesday morning as he entered into the presence of Jesus. Conner would always lighten up your mood and encourage you even in the hard times. He never let his condition limit him from loving and caring for others.
There was never a dull moment when Conner was around and he would never let the conversation be about him. Conner loved our community and our community loved Conner. Campbell County’s fighter, Conner Lane, like the Reverend Billy Graham once said, has simply changed addresses. Conner is forever remembered in our hearts. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/17/2018-6AM)
