On 28 March 2002 at the Ottawa General Hospital, aged 81, after a brief battle with cancer. Survived by his sisters Marjorie Hodgson (Ottawa) and Pauline Allen (Hillsburgh, Ontario), by his four children Gillian Lane-Mercier (Montreal), Stuart Lane (Ottawa), Andrew Lane (Saskatoon) and Alexandra Lane (Ottawa), and by grandchildren Astrid and Elizabeth Mercier (Montreal) and Michelle Lane (Saskatoon). Also survived by his former spouse Willa (MacKinnon) Lane of Vancouver. Predeceased by his brother Stuart Lane (RCNVR, d. 1942). George was born in Vancouver BC in 1920, the son of William Stuart Lane and Pauline Harrison (Clarke) Lane. He attended Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario, did his war effort at the Polymar plant in Sarnia, Ontario, and subsequently enrolled in the Faculty of Law at the University of British Columbia. George was called to the bar of the Law Society of British Columbia in 1948 and practised as a partner in the firm Guild, Yule and Company in Vancouver until his retirement in 1991. Much of his practice focused on mining and he was particularly proud of his strong relationship with Japanese companies investing in British Columbia. George spent his summers as a child at Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island and as an adult on Savary Island in the Strait of Georgia. He was an avid gardener and a very devoted father. He moved from Vancouver to Ottawa in 1995 to be closer to his children and sisters. Many thanks to the staff and residents of the Palisades Retirement Residence in Ottawa for making his last two years so enriched. A private family ceremony is to be held in Ottawa. Condolences can be directed to the family via Stuart Lane (3-139 McGillivray Street, Ottawa, Ontario). Donations appreciated to the Canadian Cancer Society (1745 Woodward Street, Ottawa, Ontario) of which George was Honourary Solicitor, on a pro-bono basis, for many years. Arrangements in care of the Central Chapel of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, Ottawa. The Ottawa Citizen, 01-04-2002
