A memorial has been placed at a Baton Rouge YMCA in honor of the late Gerry Lane.

The memorial was unveiled Saturday afternoon at the Paula G. Manship YMCA at 8100 YMCA Plaza Drive.

Lane was a major supporter of the YMCA and their efforts into Baton Rouge area youth sports programs.

Lane's son, Eric Lane said that his dad was a giver, and that he “never wanted to do anything for himself.”

In addition to the ribbon cutting, the YMCA also held their National Healthy Kids Day. This is a free health and wellness event for kids and their parents.
