Services were held last Sunday for Howard R. Lane, 66, who died of a heart attack Nov. 3 in Santa Monica. He was a fellow of the American Institute of Architects, 1977 president of the California Council of AIA and founder of the Lane Architectural Group, Woodland Hills.
A member of the U.S. Army’s 3rd Armored Division in Europe in World War II, Lane studied architecture under Mies van der Rohe at the Illinois Institute of Technology in his home town of Chicago, graduating in 1947. He moved to California in 1948, and formed his own firm in 1953.
Lane is survived by his wife, Shirley, a son, Rod, and daughters Laura and Barbara.
