Shane died Thursday evening, Nov. 12, 1992, at the Niobrara County Nursing Home in Lusk. He was born June 1, 1902, at Fairbury, Neb., the son of George W. and Allie E. (Mitchell) Shane.

They raised registered poll Hereford cattle for many years.

He was active for many years as a 4-H leader, the Farm Bureau and was an avid fan of Lusk High School sports. He also drove school bus routes for several years.
