First Baptist Church Atoka, Ok.
On August 2, 1989, Lane's funeral service was held at the First Baptist Church in Atoka, Ok.
It was thought to be large enough to hold all the people that would come to pay their respects to Lane.
However, Oklahoma's paper, "The Oklahoman", estimated that 3500 people attended Lane's funeral.
1200 filled the pews and aisles of the church and its adjacent auditorium, and the rest of the mourners stood outside in the rain, listening to the service over loudspeakers.
The Rev. Willard Moody of Roswell, N.M. said that Lane was one of the many rodeo cowboys that "get to know Jesus" (Lane was a born-again Christian.)
After the service, Lane was taken to Hugo, OK., about 45 miles from Atoka, and laid to rest at Mount Olivet Cemetery, next to his friend and mentor, Freckles Brown.
"When I have to think of Lane there, I like to think of Freckles there with him."
Mount Olivet is best known for it's "Showman's Rest" area, where many circus performers and employees are laid to rest.
Lane Frost, Freckles Brown, and Todd Whatley are all World Champion Bull Riders that are buried at Mount Olivet.
