Dwight Marlin Lane

May 31, 1949 — March 3, 2012

Dwight Lane, age 62, a resident of Barnesville, Minnesota died on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at the V. A. Medical Center in Fargo, North Dakota after a lengthy battle with colon cancer. Dwight Marlin Lane was born May 31, 1949 in Roseau, Minnesota to James and Dorothy (Anderson) Lane. He grew up and attended grade school near Strathcona, Minnesota. In 1967 he joined the army and spent a year in Vietnam during his two years of active duty. On June 19, 1971 Dwight was united in marriage to Kay Simmons. They spent the next 10 years in northern Minnesota. In 1981 they moved to Frazee, Minnesota and in 1988 moved to Barnesville, Minnesota where they lived until Dwights death. Dwight had truck driving in his blood and had a strong work ethic. He put in long days and sometimes half the night, too. He was making plans to retire when he was diagnosed with colon cancer. He did retire, but not the way he had planned. Dwight was a member of St. Johns Lutheran Church in Barnesville. He was a quiet man who kept to himself. He was a great provider for his family and could fix most anything. One of his greatest enjoyments was flower gardening.
