Lance was a great athlete all of his life; from little league (crusher) to hockey. He was an active participant at the Calgary Stampede and was a stampede wrangler. Lance loved baseball. He went to tri cities in Idaho, NSA worlds in Whistler, BC and traveled throughout Alberta playing on multiple teams. Lance was a caring, loving, outgoing guy. Lance made friends everywhere he went.

    I regret that I can not attend the services today. Still in shock and finding it hard to believe that the lord has taken another soul far to early. Lance was always nice and kind to me and my family and he will be dearly missed. My family sends you all our love and strength at this hard time and you all in my thoughts and prayers.
