James Monroe Lane (Jim) after a long battle with Multi Myeloma & Lymphoma Cancer went home to God on the 4th day of February 2020, at the age of 77.
In his early years Jim was active in the DeKalb County Indiana community with a Real Estate and Home Building Company founded by his parents. After attending Purdue, Jim returned home to sell Real Estate, build homes and develop subdivisions.
In 1985 Jim and Ann decided to relocate to Texas where Jim was employed by a large International Real Estate Owner & Developer. In 1990 Jim left and formed his own International Real Estate Brokerage Company which he ran until retirement.
Jim excelled in the Scottish Rite Masons and became the youngest member and officer at the time. In 1979 Jim was awarded the 33rd and last degree of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite an accomplishment he was extremely proud of.
Jim was known for his broad smile and infectious grin and will be dearly missed by those that knew and loved him.
Jim is survived by the love of his life and wife of 41 years, Ann Marie Charleswood Lane, and his children, Lecia Lane Brow (Andy) and Jared James Lane (Beth). Jim will also be fondly remembered by his four grandchildren, Austen, Landen, Jack, and Aubrey, by his sister Carolyn Cox Lane, his numerous nieces and nephews and extended family and dear friends.
