Memorial service for Bill Lane to be held Friday

 

A memorial service for Bill Lane begins promptly at noon on Friday, Oct. 1, at Stanford Memorial Church on the university campus. All balconies will be open.

Parking is available at Galvez Field on Galvez Street; a shuttle service to the memorial begins at 10:30 a.m.

Lane was a member of Portola Valley's first Town Council, the town's first mayor and, with his wife Jean Lane, a major benefactor to the town. He was a former ambassador to Australia and Nauru, a philanthropist, a horseman, and a renowned advocate for and supporter of environmental causes.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, gifts in Lane's name can be made to the Peninsula Open Space Trust, the California Parks Foundation, the Yosemite Conservancy, or the Portola Valley Open Space Acquisition Fund.
