Born in Bryn Mawr, he was the son of the late Ira W. Lane Jr. and Mary Eunice (Daly) Lane.
Tom grew up with his parents and sister in Narberth where he eventually served with Narberth Fire Company. He attended Monsignor Bonner High School, Saint Francis University (Physics), Drexel University (Engineering), and Villanova University for his Masters. He married his high school sweetheart in 1966, and together they celebrated almost 52 wedding anniversaries. He became a civil engineer, and in 1971 incorporated his own commercial construction company, LML Corporation. In his later years, he continued to consult on a myriad of commercial and residential projects, as well as acting as advisor and mentor to those just starting out. Tom was a devout Catholic, and contributed his many talents to the church for the duration of his life, through both personal service and professional partnerships. He was a perpetual student. Loved to learn. Loved to laugh and play pranks and make others laugh. He cherished his family, above all, and made sure they were loved, supported, and encouraged.
