Matthew Lane Whitehouse was born Jan. 11, 1963 to Wilbert Ray and Sharon Rozanne Whitehouse in Sapulpa. He departed this life Jan. 16, 2021, at the age of 58 years.
A graduate of Bristow High School in 1981, Lane spent the next 30 years as a public servant. He worked for Creek County in several capacities but most recently was serving his second term as Creek County Commissioner.
Lane Whitehouse and Robin Robinson were united in marriage Sept. 5, 1997. He was a faithful member of the Bristow Holiness Church.

He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, and going the lake. More than anything, Lane loved spending time with his family. He especially loved his grandkids; they were his life. He was a friend to many and was always willing to take time to share encouragement or lend a helping hand whenever the opportunity arose.
