"I worked with Lance back in the 1990's and I will always remember him as being full of life, happy, and funny.  I would speak to him on the phone often and he would always bring cheer and happiness to my day.  I decided to look him up today and am shocked and really upset to see he has passed.  I will pray for him and my thoughts and prayers will also be with his wife and girls."

"I've known Lance since the 8th grade when we were the only two guys in a class of all girls. One memory that stands out was picking up the typing teachers car and turning it sideways between two cars. I got suspended. We remained great friends never losing touch even after  he moved to High Springs.  He has always been there no matter what he had going on . Lance, you will be missed my brother."

"Lance was my friend, and will be greatly missed. He was key in helping me become what I am today in the propane industry. He was very steady and determined, and believed he could do anything he set his mind to. He Loved his wife and girls. He was the one guy that no matter how elevated he was, he stayed planted on the ground, and made you feel as you were equal. Love ya friend."
