Zane was born in Wolf Point, MT on March 28, 1955 to Frank and Vera (Marmon) Shumway. He grew up farming and went through school at Wolf Point before leaving to become a truck driver and perform other handyman jobs until he joined the United States Army in August 1975. While serving, he was a crew chief and stationed throughout Colorado, Georgia, and Germany. He received his honorary discharge in 1982.

After the military, Zane was a truck driver throughout the US and eventually opened his own truck driving business in the mid-to-late 1980’s. Some of his favorite activities were hunting, riding horses, drinking coffee, and spending time with friends and family. Zane married Tessa (Babcock) on March 29, 1986, and his truck driving had them living in multiple places across Eastern Montana and the Midwest. To this union they had two children, Josh and Katrina. They found their home in March of 2000 in Terry, Montana where they raised their children until 2010. In June of 2010 they moved to Sentinel Butte, North Dakota where they continued to raise their daughter until she graduated. They retired to Terry in 2013.

Zane was a proud father and grandfather of his children. He is survived by his wife Tessa, his three children Josh, Katrina, Matt, and their spouses, Melissa, Nathan, and Sabrina. He is also survived by his four grandchildren, Hunter, Weston, Kasia, and Bradyn.
