It is with heavy hearts and cherished memories that we share the passing of Lance René Maurice, a devoted husband, father, and friend, on June 8th, 2024. Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, California, Lance brought his unique spark to everyone he met and every endeavor he pursued

Lance had a lifelong passion for cars and motorcycles. In his youth, you could often find him in the garage, sleeves rolled up, tinkering with engines and rebuilding motorcycles. His ability to cobble together pieces from various broken things to create one perfect machine was nothing short of magical. He saw potential in everything and everyone, and this gift for seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary is something he passed on to his family and all who knew him

Lance shared a beautiful and enduring love story with his wife, Sue Maurice. Together, they built a life filled with love, laughter, and four wonderful daughters: Sara, Jenna, Deanna, and Christa, and then three energetic grandsons: Owen, Samuel, and Silas. Lance’s love for his family was expressed through his actionshe was always there to lend a hand, offer support, and share his knowledge. His actions spoke volumes, and his presence was a constant source of strength and comfort. 

When Lance and Sue moved into their current home in Spring Hill, TN, the yard was a blank canvas-a barren place without a single tree. Lance, with his green thumb and vision, transformed it into a natural oasis. He rooted trees from clippings taken from his beloved previous yard, creating a lush sanctuary for his family to enjoy. This garden, like so much of what Lance touched, is a living testament to his hard work, creativity, and love

Lance was a lifelong learner, always curious about how things worked and eager to acquire new skills. This passion for knowledge and innovation is a legacy he leaves behind, inspiring his family and friends to never stop exploring and learning

Lance’s warm heart and generous spirit touched many lives, and he will be terribly missed by all who knew him, especially his beloved family. His life was a testament to love, dedication, and the joy of creating something beautiful from the simplest of beginnings

Lance Rene Maurice is survived by his loving wife, Sue; his four daughters, Sara, Jenna, Deanna, and Christa, and a community of friends and family who will forever hold him in their hearts.
