He served in Vietnam in 1968 during the Tet Offensive.  After being discharged from the service he located in Hawaii until moving back to Illinois in the fall of 1970. Denny & Jean met while he was a bartender in Farmington, IL and it was love at first sight. They became true soul mates working together in the photography business for over 40 years, playing cards, golfing, they did everything together.  Denny was the 4th generation to own and operate Lane Transfer from 1971-1973, but his love of photography won out and he started Lane Photography in Farmington, IL in 1973.  In 1974 the Lane's moved to Rushville to run Lane Photography until 2016.  He was Schuyler County Coroner from 2003-2015.  Upon retiring in 2015 Denny & Jean bought a house in Zephyrhills, FL next to his mother's house and they have spent the last 6 years wintering in Florida.  He was a member of the Mascoutin Bay Longrifles, Rushville Masonic Lodge #9 A.F. & A.M., 22 Club, Rushville Moose Lodge #506, Schuyler Co. Shooters Club, Wednesday Men's Golf League, Friday Mixed Quota Golf League, Professional Photographers of America, APPI, Beardstown Elks Lodge #1007, a life member of VFW Post #7315 and was a Hunter Safety Instructor for many years.  Denny had a love for life, photography, golfing, hunting, rendezvousing, shopping online (it was always a surprise to see what new package was going to show up!!). He loved his family, children, grandchildren and grand dogs. He will be truly missed by all of us.  But remember -- "Look right out here." Good.  Funeral services will be held at 5:00 p.m. Monday, May 31, 2021 at Worthington Funeral Home with Rev. Stacy Tomich officiating.
