Justin Lane 1986 -2021

 Justin was taken from us January 1, 2021 in a tragic water truck accident at 120th Street West and Ave. I, Lancaster.
He leaves behind his grieving family, adored wife Jessica, beloved son Bronson, devoted parents George and Charlene, and many cherished friends and family members.

Justin was the 4th generation of the pioneering Lane Family who resided at the ranch at 60th and L in Quartz Hill, a working ranch since 1908. Son Bronson is the 5th generation of the Lanes to live there. Devotion to his family was his highest honor. His greatest joy was to be of service to them. Justin was devoted to his wife Jessica whom he called "My Princess"and"MyAngel"and his son Bronson who was his "partner" and "best buddy". He took an active role as father doing everything for his son; horse shows, school and sports activities and making Bronson his favorite food treats.
Justin felt a great responsibility to continue the ranch tradition and carry on the legacy of his prudent great grandfather George W., his grandfather Frank, and his father George. He was a kind and gentle horseman and trainer and considered his horses to be a partner to his sport. He was an excellent horseman and his gentle training style set him apart. He grew up learning from his father and grandfather.

Justin's life as a rancher/ cowboy was the times that family bloodlines ran deep. Life on the ranch consisted of day-to-day doctoring of cattle and horses, training and exercising, perfecting his craft, and operating the family's working ranch. He traveled extensively on the rodeo circuit, excelling in tie down and team roping and was teaching his son Bronson to rope and ride. He drove the Wells Fargo stagecoach and horse hitch throughout the western United States including the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade.

Justin took great pride and pleasure in his literary pursuits. His passions and gratifications were all things literary arts and history. He was a teacher.He would share his knowledge selflessly. One of his joys in life was to see the people he taught master those skills.

Justin graduated from Paraclete High school where he played football for four years, and Cal State Bakersfield in 2013. He was a businessman like his father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He was the Vice President of Monte Vista Building Sites, Inc, partner of Lane Ranch & Co., and a Board Member of Antelope Valley East Kern Water Agency.

He was a member of the Screen Actors Guild and appeared in many commercials, TV shows, and movies in many wrangler capacities. He was scheduled to begin a three-month job on the film Miracle Workers 3 this week. Bronson Justin George Lane, 5 years old, displays great fortitude and strength of character in his time of loss. Justin, you will be greatly missed, and you will live on through Bronson, and in the conscience of all those who were privileged to know you.

In lieu of flowers, donations made be made in Justin's name to the UCLA Jules Stein Eye Institute. giving@jsei.ucla.edu Services will be held OUTDOORS on Tuesday – January 19, at 10:00 a.m at Joshua Mortuary in Lancaster, CA. Family and Friends are welcome.
