Lance was born on November 12, 1962 in Calico Rock, AR to James and Yvonne Southard. He spent his early childhood in Kodiak, AK and attended Maine Elementary in Kodiak, AK from 1967-1976. He returned to Arkansas in 1976 and graduated from Norfork High School in 1981. He was a very gifted individual with sports, playing both basketball and baseball. Lance attended North Arkansas College in Harrison, AR on a Cheerleading scholarship.

Lance joined the Army in October 1991, where he served until he was honorably discharged in March of 1995. Lance was deployed to Germany where he served most of his deployment.

Lance married Vicki on November 14, 1992. Over their 26 years of marriage, they have lived many places including Arkansas, Germany, Oklahoma and Texas. They have also been blessed with four wonderful children.

Lance was a jack of all trades. He was a generous, humorous, dedicated and very skilled individual, who had many talents.
