Cory Lane

Cory Lane of Camby died Tuesday at the age of 16.

He was a sophomore at Plainfield High School. During his middle school years, he was involved in track, cross country, and swimming. He played soccer for many years with the Mooresville Optimist Soccer program and was a certified soccer referee as well.

He enjoyed nature, being outdoors, mountain biking, four wheelers, roller coasters, Monster trucks, boating, airplanes, the Indianapolis Colts, and extreme motor sports

 This past February, Cory was able to meet his idol, freestyle motocross rider, X Games champion, and NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Travis Pastrana. 

He was a member of Mt. Gilead Church of Mooresville, and especially enjoyed VBS, summer camps, and youth retreats. He was baptized with his parents on Jan. 23, in front of church members who stood by him during all of his struggles through his battle with Osteosarcoma.

As a Riley Kid, who fought Crohn’s Disease and cancer, Cory had many opportunities to inspire others with his smile that could light up a room and put a smile on the face of another child facing a similar battle. He made several public service announcements with former Colts Coach Tony Dungy as part of the Kohl’s Caring For Kids program, and was the Riley Coin Toss Kid on two occasions, the second of which included an emotional meeting with cancer survivor, Colts Coach Chuck Pagano.

Survivors include his parents, Carrie and Doug; a sister, Katrina of Royal Palm Beach, Fla.; grandparents Charles and Leslie Harvey of Falls Church, Va., Carlita Harvey of Vero Beach, Fla., Randal and Lana Berardi of Pekin, Ill., and Julia Lane of Virginia; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. 

A celebration of life service is set for 2 p.m. Saturday at The Church at Mount Gilead, 6019 E. S.R. 144, Mooresville. Cremation will follow.

Calling is from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday at the church.

Memorials may be made to the Cory Lane Foundation, c/o The Community Foundation of Morgan County, 56 N. Main St., Martinsville, IN 46151. Envelopes will be available at the services.

Carlisle – Branson Funeral Service & Crematory, 39 E. High St., Mooresville, is handling arrangements.
