Boy remembered for actions, attitude

Lane Rowe, who saved three children in rolling minivan, recalled by community

— Rothacker said he remembers Rowe was well liked by everybody and was good-natured.

“When you look at the tragic accident and what he attempted to do, it was the way he ran his life. He put others first. He was very considerate,” said Rothacker.

Rothacker also said he’d like the community to take away something good from the tragedy and remember Rowe’s positive outlook on life. “And his need to make others happy and content – he was very unselfish,” he said.

Stevens Elementary School made special arrangements with substitute teachers, so that teachers and staff could attend services for Rowe on Thursday, Oct. 4 at the Burnt Hills Methodist Church.

Rowe is survived by his parents Jennifer and Daniel Abraham of Burnt Hills and Robert Rowe and Carol Von Fricken of Schenectady; brothers, Reid Rowe, EJ, Lark and Felix Abraham; sisters, Luca and Donya Rowe and Miah Abraham; and extended family members.

Contributions to the Lane Rowe Memorial Fund may be made at any branch of the Ballston Spa National Bank or be mailed to the bank at PO Box 70, Ballston Spa, NY 12020.
