He was born in Mesa Dec. 1, 1986 to J. Scott and Carolyn Canfield Flake. He graduated from Snowflake High School with the class of 2005 and was currently taking online courses at Mesa Community College.

Lance loved sports and could frequently be found sitting courtside or on the sidelines for LOBOS ball teams. Though he was blind, he worked tirelessly to ensure 'fair' officiating in local sports events. He truly loved people, sports and life. Lance was easy to love and has many friends. He had a perfect faith that his physical condition was temporary. He eagerly anticipated the day he would be able to run, jump and play ball again. He always viewed life through an eternal perspective.
