Carlton Lane, 78, entered peacefully into eternal rest on June 9, 2022, as a result of Leukemia. He resided in his home of twenty years in Currituck, North Carolina with his wife Nedra and grandson, Jules Lane. Before moving to Currituck in 2001, Loyd Carlton Lane lived for 32 years in Richmond, Virginia, where he enjoyed a successful career in business.
Born on April 13, 1944 in Perquimans County, NC, he was the son of the late Loyd Sanford Lane and Audrey Cartwright Lane. He was preceded in death by his brother, Forrest Ray Lane.
He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Nedra Lane; two children, Loyd Jason Lane and Adriann Lane Haney; three grandchildren, Tia-Marie Lane, Jules London Lane, and Carson Wyatt Haney; one great grandchild, niece Christy Lane, niece Sarah Sorrentino and sister-in-law Arlene Bassford.
Having never truly retired, when he was not working, Carlton enjoyed golfing, carpentry, hiking, and was an active member of the Boy Scouts of America, Troop 127 with his grandson Jules Lane.
Known as an active man with a love of nature, Carlton hiked the Grand Canyon from rim to rim 5 times, the last being at age 72. In the years preceding his death, Carlton enjoyed taking trips with his grandson Jules to Camp Raven Knob. The running joke within the camp was “If you want to get lost, follow Carlton.”
Carlton Lane is remembered as a kind, generous, and hard-working husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He is truly missed. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm Saturday, July 9, 2022 at Twiford Memorial Chapel in Elizabeth City, NC, officiated by Pastor Jerry Cribb. A private family burial will be held at Chesapeake Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends in the lobby following the service.
