SUN PRAIRIE-On Thursday, June 7, 2018, John Lane, loving father of three children and devoted son, passed away at the age of 55 at his home in Sun Prairie.
John was born on January 7, 1963, in Manitowoc, WI to Ken and Muriel (Achenbach) Lane. A 1981 graduate of Sun Prairie High School, he received his associate degree in printing from Madison Area Technical College in 1983 and practiced his craft in the Madison area for over 30 years as a talented print and pre-media professional.
John had a quiet and contemplative nature which was best reflected in his passion for the outdoors. His gentle soul flourished in the peaceful solitude of Wisconsin's forests, fields, lakes and streams. Those who knew him best appreciated the contrast between his introspective demeanor and his extraordinary intellect and sense of humor.
John is survived by his three loving children Hunter, Logan, and Remington; his mother Muriel; and brother Steve (Shawn) Lane. He is further survived by his sister-in-law Mary Lane; several nieces and nephews; and his long-time friend and partner Julie Stoflet. John was preceded in death by his father Ken, brother Mike and his paternal and maternal grandparents.
A private gathering for John's family is being planned for a future date.
