Lane Keven Busch, 60

Sept. 8, 1959 — Aug. 3, 2020

Larry and Lavina Busch welcomed a slightly stubborn, fun-loving, blond little boy who joined his two older brothers and a sister on Sept. 8, 1959, in Bozeman, Mont.

Lane grew up and attended schools there, competed on the swim team, and got into just enough mischief before moving to Arizona to attend DeVry Institute. He also enjoyed mining for gold in the Yukon Territory alongside his dad for several years.

After moving to Hayden Lake, Idaho, he met and married Janna Scott, with whom he had two sons. Lane worked his way up to management with United Parcel Service before buying his own FedEx trucks and routes. He never lost his entrepreneurial spirit, venturing into a Papa Murphy franchise, which required a move to New Mexico.

Following a divorce, Lane moved back to Post Falls, Idaho, to be near the pride and joys of his life — his two boys. In 2008, Lane married Tamie Jo Carnahan and joked that the whole family went on their honeymoon trip to Italy and Greece. This family trip was to be the first of several, which Lane repeatedly said they were so fortunate to experience. He loved travel and loved the decade of years with Tamie Jo, before losing his wife just over four years ago. He never recovered from this loss, ultimately losing his own life to his battle with alcoholic addiction shortly after moving to Arizona to “reinvent his life” as he termed it.

Lane leaves behind family members including his mother and stepfather, Lavina and David Coon of Surprise, Ariz. He spoke often with joy and pride of his beloved sons, Cameron Busch of Boise, Idaho, and Brandon Busch of Rathdrum, Idaho; as well as Tamie Jo’s daughter, Kristin Carnahan of Post Falls. He also leaves behind his saddened siblings, Larry and Carrie Busch of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and Laure and Mike Cysewski of Townsend, Mont.; along with treasured nieces and nephews. His father, Larry F. Busch and his brother, Lance preceded Lane in death.

“No more sorrow, no more pain” — “Don’t be sad about Lane’s death, be glad that he lived” have been words of comfort to family.

A private family memorial service is planned at a later date.
