Visit to share a memory with the family. n Nathan Philip Lane , 48, a Foreign Service officer from Arlington, Va., passed away on Nov. 2, 2019, in Washing- ton, D.C., after an auto accident. Born in Madison, Wis., Mr. Lane grew up in Lincoln, Neb., and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Nebraska and a master’s degree in political science from the University of Illinois. In 2000, he became a Foreign Service officer with the State Department. He served in Mexico, Russia, Belarus, Vietnam and, most recently, Kenya. Col- leagues remember Mr. Lane for his kind- ness, generosity and infectious laughter. Mr. Lane was a lifelong baseball enthu- siast, and steadfastly gave his allegiance to the Washington Nationals. A fluent reader of Russian, he loved the novels of Boris Akunin. He enjoyed running and chess, and he especially relished time playing pickup sports with his son. Mr. Lane is survived by his wife of 23 years, Sara Michael; their son, Peter; his mother, Janie Lane; father, Leslie Lane; stepmother, Judith Lane; and his brother, Zachary Lane. In lieu of flowers, consider support- ing a cause Mr. Lane was passionate about: the scholarship program for Lincoln Northeast High School students to experience life abroad.

Mr. Menold served for 47 years in the Air Force and State Department. He served in the U.S. Air Force from 1967 until 1975, when he joined the U.S. For- eign Service. He worked for the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, which later merged into the State Department. He worked as a Foreign Service officer and, later, in the Civil Service as an expert on multilateral nonproliferation and disarmament issues until his retirement in 2014. From then until 2017, he returned to State on a part-time basis to help his col- leagues on special projects. Mr. Menold is survived by his wife of 52 years, Mary Jo; and their children, Christopher, Daniel and Jessica. n Lewis P. Reade , 87, a retired Foreign Service officer of Placitas, N.M., died on Dec. 17, 2019, following a long illness. Mr. Reade was born on Nov. 1, 1932, in Brooklyn, N.Y., to Dorothy and Herman Reade. He spent his high school and college years in Miami, Fla., graduating from the University of Miami in 1953 with a degree in mechanical engineering. After graduation, he served in the U.S. Army. He was stationed at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, where he worked on the development of atomic cannons. Following military service, Mr. Reade held a number of field engineering positions, and in 1966 he became vice president of Westinghouse Learning Corporation. In the early 1970s, he was a senior executive at Tyco Laboratories and Kellett Corporation. Starting in 1973, Mr. Reade devoted his career to public service. That year, he became CEO of Big Brothers Association and, in 1977, presided over its merger with Big Sisters International, a woman- run organization, to form Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. In 1981 he entered the Foreign Ser- vice as a senior officer in the U.S. Agency for International Development, where he remained until his retirement in 1997. Mr. Reade served as mission director in Kingston (1982-1985), senior deputy assistant administrator for the Private Enterprise Bureau (1985-1986), mission director in Amman (1986-1990), mis- sion director in Jakarta (1990-1992) and director general for the U.S.-Asia Envi- ronmental Partnership (1992-1997). After retiring, Mr. Reade was presi- dent and CEO of the Jordan–United States Business Partnership from 1998 to 2000. He also consulted for the United Nations Development Program (2003) and the William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan (2007-2009). He participated actively in the greater Albuquerque community and volun- teered on the boards of the local Big Brothers Big Sisters and Civitan Interna- tional organizations, among others. Mr. Reade was an avid lover of the arts and local history, and he was espe- cially fond of classical music. Among his last words were, “I love Mozart.” Friends and colleagues describe him as “a great gentleman and compassionate leader.” They recall his championing of Big Brothers Big Sisters and the fact that he was insightful and always interested in others. They remember, too, his kindness, ability, wit and strong character. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Margaret Ann (Peggy); three sons; four grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and many other loving family and friends. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in Lewis Reade’s name to Big Broth- ers Big Sisters of Central NewMexico.
