Todd R. Lane, age 55, died July 18, 2017 at his home in Las Vegas, Nevada of glioblastoma multiforme. Born June 11, 1962 in Manhassett, N.Y., he was educated in the Berkshires, graduating from Monument Mountain Regional High School in 1980. He attended Cobleskill
College and later graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maryland overseas with a degree in Art History and Fine Art. He later received a certificate in professional guitar from Berklee School of Music.
He was an outdoor enthusiast. An accomplished rock climber, he loved canyoneering, surfing, hiking and mountain biking. For Todd, all routes were the most memorable. He often said the best climber was the one having the most fun. He was kind, had a wild and whacky sense of humor, and a firm belief in fairness.
A loving husband, father, son, brother and friend, he leaves Karen Marcellot Lane, his wife of 33 years and son Calder Emerson Lane. He also leaves his parents David W. Lane and Joan Lane of Stockbridge, Mass.; sister Dawn Lane of Stockbridge, Mass.; brothers, Gregg Lane of Round Hill, Va., Christopher Lane of Middleton, Mass., and Matthew Lane of Tampa, Fla., along with an incredible circle of friends in Las Vegas who have helped in all ways that friends do.
There are no calling hours. Donations may be made in memory of Todd at: Three Square, 4190 N. Pecos Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89115.
