    Dr. Leon (Lee) Lane, age 76, of Dunwoody, passed away on September 8th from prostate cancer. He was born in Boston, MA to Lillian and Morris Lane. Leon was the beloved husband for 50 years to Sharyn Lane. He is survived by children, Kimberly and Richard Kopelman of Atlanta and Craig and Jagoda Lane of San Antonio, TX. He was a proud Papa to his grandchildren, Nathen and Rebecca Lane and Jeremy, Zac and Micah Kopelman. He graduated from Williams College with a full scholarship in 1962. He then received his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine, which was followed by three years of residency at Case Western Reserve Department of Ophthalmology. He was proud that he served his country after that as a Major in the US Army. He had a private practice of ophthalmology in Ft. Lauderdale, FL for over 18 years, where he was much loved by his patients. His love of learning never stopped. In 1992, he became the chief fellow in Ocular Immunology at Harvard Medical School, and was constantly excited by the prospect of helping patients with difficult cases from all over the world. Upon moving to Atlanta, he enjoyed a variety of activities including the North Atlanta Men’s Club, where he made so many wonderful friends.

    Lee was a very special guy and it has been a pleasure knowing him. As members of NAMC, our paths crossed at many activities. He was always pleasant and willing to help anyone despite his his own pain from illness. Lee will be missed.

    I enjoyed knowing Leon for about five years. Played many rounds of poker, a very nice man, very considerate of others. Sure am glad his pain is gone. Condolences to the family.

    There is nothing I can say that will mitigate your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I met Leon thru the Men's Club and he was a great guy and I will miss him. Just a month ago we sat next to each other at lunch and he was telling me about his recent cruise. I was blessed to have known him.

    Sharyn and family -- Pat and I am so sorry for your loss. Lee was a very special person-- always the gentleman -- thinking of others while minimizing his own health condition. I will truly miss him. Our thoughts are with you. Jay & Pat

    Sharyn, Bennett and I met Lee last year at a new member wine and cheese for Temple Emanu-El. You couldn't make it for some reason. What a delight Lee was to talk with. We smiled with you when Rabbi Anderson announced your 50th anniversary at services several months ago. Our sincere condolences to you and family. Reba and Bennett
