Casey Dean Lane, age 36, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, at his birth home in Bryan, Texas on June 13, 2019.  He was born on January 26th, 1983 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Bryan, Texas.  He was a loving, nurturing individual with an endless smile and caring heart.

As a child, Casey loved building and reshaping his Legos and model cars, biking, fishing, gardening and playing piano.  Casey also enjoyed volunteering in him community and elsewhere especially with special needs children in sporting activities.  He was a regular at Epicures Thanksgiving Feast of Caring, along with tutoring children in math and science.

His passion for gymnastics began at the age 7 and from 1st – 8th grade Casey competed and placed in the Top Champion in the state of Texas annually.  His passion changed to cheerleading in his High School years when he cheered at Bryan High.  He also coached and cheered with Brazos All Stars and coached for Brazos Valley Gym and Power Sports before heading to college.

He continued his love of cheerleading by receiving a scholarship at Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas.  His first year, the team finished 2nd in the National Cheerleading Competition in Daytona, Florida.  He went on the cheer competitively with Texas Tech.

Casey’s enthusiasm to coach competitive cheerleading continued when he and his best friend and college teammate, Shane Smith, established Grand Cheer in Katy, Texas in 2006.  Since the inception, Casey’s goal was to inspire creativity, hard work and friendships among all youth and young adults on his teams.  He truly was an inspiration and he wanted to be a positive motivational support for everyone he met.
