Dustin Lane
10/03/1955 - 11/7/2004

Dustin Lane, 49, of Scottsbluff, NE passed away on Sunday, November 7, 2004, at his home surrounded by his family after his seven year battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). Funeral services will be 10:00 a.m. Friday, November 12, 2004 at Monument Bible Church in Scottsbluff with Pastor Jake Roberts officiating. Interment will be in Fairview Cemetery.
Friends may call at Dugan-Kramer Funeral Chapel between 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Thursday.
Dustin was born October 3, 1955 in Scottsbluff to John and Betty (Henry) Lane. From birth, Dustin has endured many challenges in his lifetime. His struggles began at being prematurely born to suffering life-threatening burns at the age of two. Throughout his childhood, he spent his years braving many surgical procedures.
Dustin was a 1974 graduate of Scottsbluff High School, but spent most of his teenage days in Minatare/Melbeta area. During high school, Dustin’s passions were running, track and getting his first Mustang. Everyone remembers Distin and his golden Mustang cruising the streets of Scottsbluff. He had the great fortune as a teenager to live with Dave and Katrina Nuland whom were his foster parents. During this time with them, he accepted Jesus into his heart.
On September 27, 1986, he married Leah Canell. Soon after, Dustin and Leah moved to Arizona where Dustin was employed as an electrician. He was later given an opportunity to move to Nevada and be part of the Hoover Dam renovation and became a journeyman electrician. From that point, his career took him to many locations across the United States.
In 1991, Dustin and Leah returned to the valley where Dustin began his own construction company. Dustin continued his occupation well into his diagnosis of ALS. Even when physically unable, he was always constructing in his mind developing the next “project”. He was a devoted fan of the Denver Broncos and Nebraska Cornhuskers. Dustin was skilled in his trade – anything from building a house to rebuilding an engine. Dustin was the “good Samaritan” and could be counted on for those in need without judgment. Dustin had a special place in his heart for his children – loving to attend his daughters’ softball games – cared for all animals and loved the outdoors.
Dustin is survived by his wife, Leah, of Scottsbluff; their children: Shelby, Kassidy and Keaton; he also survived by his son: Justin Lane of Scottsbluff; daughter: Aubrey (Shaun) Soule of Gering; two sisters: Loni (Dee) Jones of Gillette, WY and Pam Trevino and her daughter Mallory of Scottsbluff; half sister: Roxanne (Marv) Martinez of Gering; father and stepmother: John and Betty Lane of Scottsbluff; mother and stepfather, Dow and Betty Ross of Mesa, AZ and 5 grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents.
