April 13, 1998 - June 22, 2019
Quintarious Davon Lane, affectionately known as “Davon” or “Q. Lane,” was born to parents Nakesha Denise Key and David Lane on April 13, 1998, at Oconee Regional Hospital in Milledgeville. He was educated through the Putnam Country Charter School System, and he graduated in May of 2016. Quintarious was an excellent student as well as an exceptional athlete. As a little boy, he played multiple sports, but the game of football made an impression on his heart. His love for the game persisted throughout his educational journey. Although he was offered a scholarship to play college football in Kentucky, Quintarious chose to remain close to family and friends. He enrolled at Middle Georgia State University in Cochran in the Fall of 2016 and began to pursue a Bachelors Degree in computer engineering. He was set to graduate in the Spring of 2020. One of his friends remarked, “Lane has an old soul,” because as she described him, “He didn’t do what other kids our age do.” Apart from having an avid appreciation for football, Quintarious enjoyed simply spending time with his family and friends, traveling and making people laugh. He was so full of life and had a very vibrant personality, but his signature feature was his smile, which could be seen most everywhere he went. Quintarious was baptized at a very early age by Apostle Dexter B. Lamar, overseer of Greater High Hope Christian Center. He attended services at GHHCC as well as St. Paul Baptist Church throughout his childhood and into early adulthood. He allowed God’s light to shine through him by showing respect and love to all those who were fortunate enough to be in his presence. Quintarious’s life came to a tragic end in the early morning hours of Saturday, June 22, 2019. Although he was only 21 years old, he made an impact on the lives of many that will last a lifetime. He will surely be missed by everyone who knew him because to know him was to love him. Quintarious’s grandparents, Willie D. Dennis and Mary F. Lane, preceded him in death, but he leaves a host of family and friends behind to cherish an abundance of memories.
He leaves behind his parents, Nakesha (Victor) Key and David Lane; his maternal grandparents, Barbara (Charles) Key and Robert Key; his paternal grandmother, Janice Butler; his brother, Jacobee Lane; and his sister, India Key. He also leaves behind many aunts and uncles: Sharon (Roland) Lawton, Alonzo (Dawn) Key, Anthony (Alice) Key, Cedric (Sheila) Lawson, Monique Lawson, Puntipa Mathis, Tamarah Robinson, Mary Dennis, Priscilla Butler, James G. Lane, Thomas Holme, Gloria Lane, James E. Dennis, Tony Butler, Stephanie Butler, Antwon Butler; great aunts and uncles: Curtis Dennis, Lizzie Mae Phelps, David Key, Rentz (Gladys) Densley, Mozel Anderson, Linda Reid and Gary Johnson. He leaves behind a special friend, Jada Burke, as well as a mentor and friend, Frances Stephens. There is no shortage of other relatives and friends that remain to reflect and cherish the memory of him.
Quintarious’s homegoing service was held on Saturday, June 29, at the Putnam County Middle School gymnasium, with the Rev. Dexter Burney officiating.
