Clark Lane Obituary (2021) – Greensboro, NC

Lane, Clark Hughes

Clark Hughes Lane passed away on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at the age of 64 after a long illness. He was the son of Margery and McKibben Lane, longtime Greensboro residents.

Clark attended Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia and UNC College in Chapel Hill, where he was an avid Tarheel and proud member of the Phi Delta Theta Brotherhood.

Those who knew and loved Clark knew him by many names and titles: son, brother, uncle, cousin, colleague, mentor, “Zulu” and above all friend. He had a big heart and a generous manner that made him loved by so many in all ages. He will be missed very much, but his kindness will be long remembered.

Clark was preceded in the death by his father, McKibben Lane. He is survived by his mother, Margery Lane; Sister Melissa Thomas; Brothers Van (Lorraine), Frank (Lynda) and Dickson as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 15 at 3 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Greensboro. Although COVID restrictions have been relaxed, social distancing and masks are required, and entering and exiting the sanctuary is only at the Greene Street entrance. The family would love your physical presence at the service, but if you have any concerns they want you to know that your presence and love can be felt through your thoughts and prayers.

Clark always thought Greensboro was a special place with so many outstanding and diverse organizations and events. Some of his favorites were the Greensboro Symphony, Guilford College’s Eastern Music Festival, and their Bryan series, and he was a strong supporter of the Friends of the Library. The family suggests donations to one of these organizations or to a charity of your choice.

After the service at the Fountain Manor Club House there will be a reception where friends and family toast Clark and share the joys and memories of someone very special.
