Eddy Lane was born May 23, 1993, to parents Rosie Purcell and Keith Elsberry in Watertown, SD. He attended preschool in Lennox, kindergarten in Canton, 1st grade in Beaver Creek, MN, 2nd to 5th grade in Valley Springs Elementary in Valley Springs, and the rest of his school career was in Brandon.
Eddy Lane worked with his father, Keith Elsberry at Elsberry Construction learning the family business, from the time he was old enough to hold a hammer. He loved to work with his dad and when he could, he would jump in to help his friends. Eddy would be there for any friend with no hesitation, working on cars or helping friends move. Whatever they needed, he was always there with a mischievous smile and occasionally a half baked idea for some fun that his mom may or may not approve of.
Eddy Lane had a lot of passions in life; first and for most was his friends and family. He touched a lot of people in his short life. He grew up in the pits of the mud races cheering on his dad and his uncle, Don. They were the Ugly Bro’s race team.
Those grateful for sharing his life include his mom, Rosie Purcell of Valley Springs, and his dad, Keith Elsberry of Brandon; his sisters, Jenna (Curt) Lewandowski of Watertown and Anna (Daniel) Koch of Lennox; his best friends, Trevor (aka Buck) Buckholz of Valley Springs, SD, Brandon (aka WATTers) Watters of Valley Springs, Colton (aka Coltron) Olofson, and all of his other close friends; his grandmother, Vonnie Elsberry of Coon Rapids, MN; his aunts and uncles, Shirley (Stacy) Thaden of Marvin, Clarissa Purcell of Canastota, Betty (Steve) Seifert of Scotland, Dan Elsberry of Coon Rapids, MN, Don (Freedom) Flickinger of DeSmet; Michael (Jennifer) Reinhardt; cousins, Jessica Reinhardt, Christina Thaden, Tabitha Thaden, Fleesha (Parker) Willfong, Mollie Murry, Amanda Seifert, Ashley Seifert, Amber Seifert, Daniel Elsberry Jr; Eddy’s godson, Ashton Edward Lewandowski; and many other extended family members; and one other person special to Eddy, his guardian angel, Greg Johnson.
