Allen was born in Atlanta on May 9, 1946, to Ed and Rose Lane, who both preceded him in death. He attended Briarcliff High School in Atlanta and went on to the University of Georgia before joining the Army in 1967. Captain Lane was a Chinook helicopter pilot, with the First Calvary Division, in Viet Nam where he was awarded numerous medals including the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Bronze Star, and the Purple Heart.
After his military service he returned to the Atlanta area and began a successful career in the insurance industry and sales. Prior to his illness, weather permitting, Allen could be found in his garden or on the golf course!
