Arnold Jay Lane


WILLIAMSBURG — The cowboy rode off into the sunset on Sept. 28, 2012.

Arnold Jay was an avid hunter, fisherman, trapper and rodeo cowboy who rode saddle bronc and Brahma bulls.

He was born and raised in Michigan but his lifelong dream was the "last frontier." He spent over 25 years living his dream in his second home state of Alaska. He married twice, raised seven kids, had 13 grand kids, 11 great-grand kids, a very large extended family and many friends.

He impressed upon his descendants his strong sense of family and loyalty. Happy trails, Arnie, till we meet again.
