Born on November 9, 1978 in Pocatello, Idaho to Kim and Shauna Moser Quick, he was the middle child and would refer to himself as being the best part of the "Oreo" the middle.

He attended Syringa Elementary, Alameda Jr. High, and graduated in 1997 from Highland High School in Pocatello. He participated in and loved wrestling, throughout Junior and Senior High School, qualifying and going to the State Tournament as a senior.

He started working while in high school at Albertson Food Store and Red Lobster. He was called to and served an honorable mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from December 3rd 1997 to November 3rd 1999 in Fresno, California. Upon returning he attended ISU off and on for a few years.

His love and goal was to become a Firefighter (like his father and maternal grandfather). He worked at the old Pocatello Hospital, City of Chubbuck Fire Department and as a waiter at Red Lobster again, before he tested and became a Firefighter for the City of Idaho Falls. He worked there from 2003 to 2007 until he was diagnosed with PTSD. He returned to Pocatello and worked for a short time at Bingham County as a Probation Officer. Lance also had his own business selling Techni Ice, worked for FedEx and several other endeavors. He was diagnosed as also being bipolar and gave everything he could to live life dealing with the illness within a broken mental health system and many other entities. In the spring of 2016 he became a certified home inspector and started Superior Home Inspections LLC. He was happy to have his own business and enjoyed working with people in the industry and growing business.

Lance loved his service dog, a Chocolate Lab "Bear" and Bear loved and cared for him.
