Francis Lane (Frank/Butchie) 75, from Ocean NJ died March 21st 2021 in Bradenton, Florida.
Born in England to Francis and Kathleen Lane. He honorably served in the United States Navy and was a proud member of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 825 – D. Frank was a true engineer who spent his life working as a heavy construction surveyor. He especially loved building bridges throughout the state of New Jersey. He enjoyed recounting stories over a few beers with friends, playing poker, going to Atlantic City, fishing, and traveling. Frank knew the backroads to anywhere in New Jersey and would give directions by naming a gin-mill along the way. He was a knower of random facts, fixer, thinker, and builder. His sarcastic wit and humorous and fun-loving ribbing will be missed by everyone.
Predeceased by his parents, Francis and Kathleen Lane; wife, Mary Ellen Lane; and brother, John Brough. Survived by his son, Francis J. Lane; daughter, Mary Elizabeth Lane; partner, Alison Jones; her son, Joseph Piscitelli and his wife Rachael; sister Florence Cambridge; brother Dennis Lane and his wife Mary Ann; brother Michael Lane and his wife Catherine; sister Kathleen McCarthy and her husband William, as well as many beloved nieces and nephews.
