Lane loved to play soccer, make it from first to third on a single, sink a putt, go anywhere, and lift a glass with friends. A recently diagnosed esophageal cancer claimed him on February 20, 2009. He was 64. Lane joins his father (also Lane Carroll) and grandson Aidan, who both also passed too soon. He leaves an extended family including his mother, Viola Carroll; brother, Robert Carroll; sister, Christine Wellnitz and her daughter, Alicia; children Aaron, Bethany, Pam, and Matthew; his four grandgirls; the Woods, Camps, and Cooks; many friends; the Scripps Ranch Old Pros; and his wife, Phoebe, who loves him most of all. We will Celebrate his life in Hoyt Park (Aviary and Canyonlake in Scripps Ranch) between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m., on Sunday, March 1, 2009.
