Lance was born on June 10, 1987 in Reno, NV to Mark Patterson and Lana O'Brien. A beautiful, full haired, blue-eyed ball of joy from the start.
Lance entered into the Marines in 2006 where he did two tours overseas. When he came back he decided he wanted to be the owner of his own company, and in 2017 he succeeded by opening up his own construction company in California. Lance was a hard-working go-getter, never letting anything stop him from reaching his goals.
Lance's biggest passions were sports, his motorcycle and his family. Lance was set to get a full scholarship for college from his baseball days, until an injury caused him trouble, but that didn't stop him from starting his own softball league once he returned from his tours. He was a real risk-taker. Was not satisfied unless his adrenaline was pumping. No one could light up a room like he could with his unmistakable, hardy laugh and contagious smile.
Lance is survived by father Mark; mother Lana; sister Tara; brother Jason; god-son Blake; and so so so many friends who all loved him dearly.
Lance lived life on his terms, rarely complained about anything, and you always, ALWAYS knew exactly what he was thinking and where he stood. A very strong, intelligent and fun-loving man. His presence on this earth will be deeply missed.
