Richard G. “Dick” Lane, Sr. of Canton passed away on July 11th after a three-year-long battle with Parkinsons Disease and Dementia. Born in Hyde Park, he was raised in Canton and graduated from Canton High School. In his earlier years, RIchard was the Owner and Operator of RG Lane Company. In the 80’s and 90’s Dick also owned and operated the Dairy Ranch Beef Corral in Canton. Following the store's closure, Dick owned the Concessions Stand at the Canton Rink. In his later years, Dick could be found “slinging pizza’s” at the American Legion in Canton. For the last 13 years, Richard devoted his time to the Pappas Rehabilitation Hospital for Children where he maintained the wheelchair accessible ramps and furniture. He previously coached Canton Youth Hockey and Canton Little League. Richard volunteered for the Canton Youth Association, and was a member of the Canton Town Club and the American Legion post #24.
