Lance Ransome Obituary

   It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of Lance Edward Ransome's passing on November 8, 2023, at the age of 61. Born in Calgary, Alberta, on August 16, 1962, Lance was a unique and independent soul who lived life on his terms.

   When his mom, Lynne, was only 15, she already had her heart set on the name "Lance" for her future son. Interestingly, there were a few other Lances in the Ransome family, but our Lance turned out to be a truly special individual. He remained true to himself throughout his life, cherishing genuine connections and forming close friendships.

   As a resident of Coleman, Alberta, Lance served his community as a volunteer firefighter, proudly rode with the Red Knights International Firefighters Motorcycle Club and was a member of the Coleman Legion for many decades.

   Lance's love for life was evident in his passion for music, regularly attending concerts that brought him joy. He was an outdoor enthusiast and loved camping, fishing, snowmobiling, skiing, windsurfing, and riding his motorcycle and dirt bike. The older he got, the more his zest for adventure grew.

   Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life are his mother and stepfather, Lynne and Bruce Hammond; his father, Lyle Ransome; and his sister, Jody Ransome (Alan Farano). Lance's extended family includes his special Aunt, Penny Hengerer, and cherished cousins Todd Elliott and Token Kena; his cousin Mike Schultz; his Manitoba family, Aunt Lorraine Colter, and numerous uncles and cousins. Lance will also be missed by his special lady, Maria Esquibel of Calgary, AB.

   Lance is predeceased by his maternal and paternal grandparents; his special cousin Trevor Elliott; and his fur baby, Ash.

   As we say our goodbyes to Lance, we remember a life well-lived, a spirit that soared, and a legacy that will endure in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know him.

   A Memorial Service will be held at Fantin’s Funeral Chapel (13461-20th Ave, Blairmore, AB) on Saturday, November 18, 2023 at 12 noon, followed by a luncheon and gathering of friends at the Coleman Legion (7831 - 17 Ave., Coleman, AB.).  Donations in memory of the late Lance Ransome may be directed to the Crowsnest Pass SPCA (PO Box 725 Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0).   Condolences may be registered at
