Firefighter Robert Lane

181 Lane fb


Robert Lane, 28, was a “big guy with a magnetic smile.” When he joined the FDNY in 1998, it was a dream come true. He loved to cook. When he would go out for dinner, he’d study the food and then later try to replicate it back at the firehouse.

He was also a self-taught mechanic with a souped-up 1983 Pontiac Grand Prix that he was planning to race on a track in New Jersey.
