Sad news to report. Mitch Lane has passed away tonight. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 3.5 years ago at the age of 41. Originally given 6 - 9 months to live, he battled and lived much longer than any thought. He is survived by a beautiful family.

Thank you DBK and Ford for making his dream come true with the delivery of his beautiful GT.

So very hard to hear. We had a close friend pass from P cancer.
May Mitch's family find peace and strength through his courage and fight to be with them these past years.
Our prayers are with the Lanes.

So very sorry to hear this. Yes, what a blessing that he was able to receive delivery of his GT before his passing. I'm sure it brought him a bit of joy during his final days. My condolences to his family and his friends here on the forum.

God bless you Mitch.

His GT was delivered by my friend Jim Graham at Santa Margarita Ford close to where Mitch lived. I communicated with him a couple times and we were going to get together with our GT's when mine got to Santa Margarita at the end of this month. Damn, just damn. Way too young, way too soon, it just doesn't make sense. I want to reinforce to the people at Ford who moved heaven and earth to get him his GT in time, that was an act of real kindness and compassion. Mitch told me that car made him so happy. The best to his family.

So sad to hear of Mitch's passing. He reached out to me when I took delivery of my GT and was so excited that his was soon to be delivered. Thank You to Ford and Dave for helping Mitch to enjoy his short lived excitement of his loved GT. My Prayers and thoughts are with his Family and Friends. I'm sure Mitch is in Heaven telling our deceased Members of the GT Forum all about his New GT. Rest In Peace My Friend. Such a tragic loss at such an early age. God Bless Mitch!
