  • Lance Allrunner

    Lance Allrunner (Cheyenne, Comanche and Kiowa) originally from Anadarko, Oklahoma has left us to be with the Creator. At the time of his death he was living in Denver, Colorado with his wife Dawn and son Phoenix Josiah where he worked for the Denver Family Resource Center.

    Lance was a star wrestler in high school and grew up in the dance arena. While in Denver he became a member of the Denver Singers (Northern) as well as the Colorado Intertribal Southern Drum. He has been serving as one of the Denver March Powwow emcees.

    To me Lance was a kind and gentle man who always put the best interest of Indian people and his family first. He always came up to me with a happy smile and greeting. He voiced for us at my nieces giveaway.

    My condolences to the Allrunner family, Darryl and Carla Wildcat, Beaushee and Mindy Wildcat.

    I will miss you my friend.

    When I first heard about about Lance I was hit hard by the news. Lance was such a very good man. Always had a big smile for everyone, always had kind words and always loved to laugh. For me Lance was always a good friend and was blessed to get to know him when I live in the Denver area. When I was going through troubled times in my life and our paths crossed he offered me alot of good words that helped me through that time. So many things I would like to say but not sure how to exactly phrase them, but I do know Lance will be greatly missed. His time here with us shone brightly across many lives and brought many smiles. Lance was a very honarable man & well respected.

    My prayers & best wishes go out to his wife & children and to all his family & friends.

    Gonna miss ya bro, love ya....

      Lance AllRunner is definitley everything that's been posted and more. I don't think there was a mean bone in his body. He was very thoughtful, kind and generous. I met him back in the late 80's. He was a youth mentor for our summer youth program here on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Since then he has been a true friend. A member of our pow-wow family and one of the great voices of the Denver March Pow-wow will be missed. Our prayers go out to the Family.

I was amazed how Lance touched the lives of different people throughout the country. I was very blessed to have known him. My prayers are with his wife and son. Carla, Darrell, Beaushee and Mindy. Please keep the family in your prayers.
