Lane Arthur McFarland, 78, of Haslett, MI went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on January 21, 2020. He is survived by his wife, Cheryl; children Lon (Tara) McFarland, Lundi McFarland, Robert (Tammi) Smith and Jeri (Dale) Kelley; grandchildren Andra (Joseph) Hasler, Kamden and Kailor Dockens; Preston, Ethan and Griffin McFarland; Adrianna (Dwight) Rau, Sam, Gabe and Alyssa Smith; Jack and Drew Brummer; Harrison Kelley and Savanna Ball; great-grandchildren Dominic and Cecilia Hasler, and Blaine Rau; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Lane was son of Arthur and Berta McFarland of Lansing, and loving brother to Timothy (Patricia Lutza) McFarland and Janice (Dennis) Prescott. Lane was born and raised in Lansing and graduated from Sexton High School in 1960. He retired from The Home Depot in 2006. Prior to that, Lane had worked at Estes Furniture for 17 years. A one-time state champion water-skier, he enjoyed spending the day on the lake. Other hobbies included customizing / detailing cars and boats, and model trains.

Lane was extremely kind and generous, and loved to spend time with his family and friends. An eternal optimist, he would always put the needs of other people above his own, and never had an ill word to say about anyone.

Lane loved to travel to Maui, Hawaii with Cheryl in the winter, and they were gracious hosts and tour guides to many family and friends there over the years. A Memorial Service will be held for Lane at New Hope Church, 2170 E. Saginaw Hwy, East Lansing, MI on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at 11:00 AM, with visitation one hour prior.

Cheryl and Family,

I am so sorry for this heartbreaking loss of Lane. What a fine and precious man, always with a smile on his face and a kind word. His memory will live on through his family and everyone who knew him. This world has lost a great man that made this life a better place. Now Heaven is rejoicing because he is smiling in the loving arms of Jesus. Love you Cheryl.

Aloha Lane 🌺
It was My great pleasure to know you, a kind and gentle man who
loved Our Savior Jesus Christ. ♥️
I’ll never forget meeting you and Cheryl so many years ago on your
annual trip to Maui. You two were a blessing to me in so many ways, Ohana
You were so generous to friends and family, sharing your love of Maui with so many, inviting them along to share your housing, and your journey with you. Your daily photo journal was lovely. Aloha was always part of your spirit. It saddened me when you became ill and had to slow it down. But my friend, you will suffer No more. Well done sir, well done. Save me a seat will ya. ♥️
