Hunter Wyatt Lane, 28, of Fort Blackmore, VA, passed away December 12, 2023.
Hunter was born on August 29, 1995, to his parents, Phillip and Vicki Harris Lane. He graduated from Gate City High School in 2013 and earned an associate degree in Electricity at Northeast State Community College. He then attended King College for a Bachelor of Business Administration and he graduated from John A. Gupton Mortuary College to be a Funeral director in TN/VA. Hunter started his funeral home career at Carter-Trent Funeral home in 2013, and in February of 2017 he left and joined the staff at Johnson – Arrowood Funeral Home. Hunter put everything he had into JA and made it into what it is today. Hunter was the founder and CEO of OriginLyfe.com, a dream he made into reality in 2021. He was so proud of how far the company had come and his vision for OriginLyfe was to make your loved one’s legacies last forever. Hunter was a member of Fincastle Masonic Lodge #33, Dungannon, VA. In his spare time (when he was not at the funeral home), he enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing golf, playing his guitar, and spending time with his fiancé McKensie and family. Hunter loved to travel, and he had actually spent the last few days with the love of his life, McKensie, at Universal Studios, the place he loved the most. He had a knack for making friends everywhere he went and had made many lifelong friends throughout his life and career including his Fort Camp Blackmore buddies. He was an avid New England Patriots, Vancouver Canucks, and Cincinnati Reds fan. Hunter had a lifelong love for wrestling, loved music and going to concerts. He loved to cook, and grill, and was a perfectionist at his cooking. Hunter devoted his life to helping others and putting others first. Hunter always said, “you treat a family like they are your family.”
He was preceded in death by maternal grandparents Hubert & Verna Harris, paternal grandparents Oscar Palmer and Tempa Lane, Aunt Rebecca Lane and several special great aunts and uncles, a very special friend and mentor Greg Lubrano.
