September 20, 1973 – April 22, 2020
It is with utmost devastation that we announce the sudden passing of Lane “Booner” Carter on April 22, 2020.
Lane was born the third child of Brad and Lynda Carter in Princeton, B.C. Lane met the love of his life, Holly, 29 years ago. A short few months after meeting, Lane & Holly moved to Fort Nelson where their children Machyla Lane & Cael Bradon were born.
Lane worked in the trades but his true passion was off road racing – his dream was to race the Baja 1000 & the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. He was well-known in racing circles, especially as the owner/operator & chief mechanic of his off road race truck, “609”. Lane had planned on following the regional off road racing circuit this year with his daughter Machyla as his co-pilot & second driver. A highlight for Lane was travelling with Holly and a couple of good friends to Lake Elsinore to watch the Lucas Oil Off Road Races where he met off road racing legend Carl Renezeder & many more drivers. Lane was lucky enough to take home a piece of Johnny Greaves’ hood, which he hung proudly on his shop wall.
Lane loved hanging in the shop with buddies, scouring through ideas to improve the performance of his race truck. Lane was extremely creative and his artistic abilities were endless. His love of golfing & snowboarding with his partner in crime, Cael, was a highlight to each season. Boating, swimming, camping and hiking with his family were highly anticipated getaways that he looked forward to. Lane & Holly enjoyed taking spontaneous road trips to out-of-the-way places & stopping at random points of interest to sample the local cuisine, traditions, & browse intriguing shops.
Lane is survived by Holly, his wife/soul mate of 25 years; his pride & joy, daughter Machyla (Blaine), & son/best friend, Cael; his loving mother Lynda; sisters Kelly (Harry) & Angie; his in-laws, Don & Sharon Parker; sisters-in-law Heidi (Dan) & Kim (Darren); brother-in-law Clint; as well as numerous aunts & uncles, cousins, nieces & nephews; and a number of very close friends that considered Lane to be their mentor/idol.
Due to the COVID-19 virus circumstances, a Celebration of Life will be postponed to a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon or the Canadian Diabetes Association in Lane’s memory.
