On Wednesday, June 10, 2020, Duster Duffie Lane, ended his fight with cancer at the age of 46 while surrounded by loved ones.
Duster was born May 25, 1974 in Harrison, Arkansas to Andy and LeeAnn Lane. He graduated from Lead Hill High School, class of 1992. He worked for James and Judy Riggs at Riggs Oak Reproduction from 15 years old until they closed their business and then for Johnson’s Manufacturing. Duster could fabricate anything from wood or metal and was an expert self-taught mechanic.
Duster’s favorite hobby was fixing up old cars and trucks and riding anything with wheels. He loved deer and turkey hunting and spending time in the woods with his dad and uncles. He enjoyed teaching his sister how to drive it like you stole it and how not to spill your drink back-roading in Pyatt. He loved to be with his friends and made many lifelong ones growing up in Lead Hill, including Brad and Paula Cain, Brad Parsely and family, Ryon Edwards, Brock and Michelle Riggs and the Riggs family, Mark and Tammy Fisk and family, John Cain and family, Danny Akins, Kris Farmer, Lydia and Angie Glenn, and countless others.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Duster and Faye Lane of Harrison, and Frank and Bobbie Polk of Lead Hill, aunt Betty Lane of Harrison, cousin Bill Brown of Harrison, uncle Bill Cain of Lead Hill, and aunt Judy Lane of Harrison.
He is survived by his parents, Andy and LeeAnn Lane, wife Melanie Smith and step-children Katrina, Dylan, and Kaden Fiveash, sister Tropha Parker and husband Brandon, niece Marlee Parker, 3 uncles: Curtis Lane and wife Diane of Harrison, Leon Lane and wife Debbie of Harrison, and Ken Polk of Lead Hill, 6 aunts: Edith Cain and late husband Bill of South Lead Hill, Janette Brown of Harrison, Rita Greenhaw and husband Nelson of Vendor, Freda Young and husband Mitchell of Harrison, Carolyn Harp and husband Jim of Harrison, and Betty Polk of Lead Hill, and cousins: William, Nikki, Keisha, Kim, Kylie, Hannah, Coulter, Mallory, MT, and many more second cousins and extended family.
Duster requested there be no memorial or services and we are honoring those wishes; he will be buried in Milam Cemetary in Lead Hill.
