Lane was a co-worker of mine that I have known since 1995. He was much more than a co-worker as we became good friends while working together over the years. He was the strongest gentle giant I have ever met. 😊 He always had a smile to share and something funny to say that would put a smile on my face as well. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends as he will be missed. He is an angel looking over us now and I will miss him forever.

Lane Bradshaw was my oldest brother he will be greatly missed. Growing up he was the best big brother anyone could have, he was kind hearted and loved life. One of my favorite moments I often think of is a day he picked me up from school in his firebird which is now a classic hot rod.
