Jeffery Alan Lane


Jeffery Alan Lane , affectionately known as “Fatman” was born on April 28,1962 to Shirley Ann Hordge-Lane and Homer Daniel Lane Sr. in Columbus, Ohio.

Jeffery was employed as a Post Office clerk for several years and enjoyed being a car mechanic in his free time along with making pizza from scratch.

As the life of any party, Jeffery enjoyed laughing, cracking jokes, dancing, singing his favorite songs by Boyz II Men, Betty Wright, Etta James, The Isley Brothers and his ultimate icon, Tupac!

Jeffery never met a stranger and anyone who met him would quickly learn that his comfort in life was to have a cigarette in one hand and his Budweiser in the other. Jeffery had no limits to anything he wanted to do and no filter in anything he wanted to say, which was accompanied by his signature stutter on the words “and” and “you”.

Jeffery enjoyed life to the fullest; spending time with his family, going on road trips, watching cowboy movies, his favorite show, COPS, often making people laugh, reciting movie scenes and talking.

Jeffery peacefully passed from this life, surrounded by his children, grandchildren and special loved ones on February 26, 2018 after battling numerous health conditions.
