Born Volodymir Ivanovich Palahniuk, son of a Ukrainian coal miner, in Lattimer Mines, a small town in the Greater Hazleton area, Palance had a great affinity for the region and was a highly visible member of the community for many years. In addition to his home in the Los Angeles area, he kept a farm in Butler Township to which he returned each summer to be among local friends and family. Shortly before his death in November 2006, Palance sold the farm, but still returned to the area to visit.
