The actor died of a heart disease, with narrowed heart arteries being listed as his cause of death.
TMZ reported his causes of death listed as ischemic heart disease and atherosclerotic coronary artery disease.
The condition prevents blood and oxygen from reaching the heart.
The ischemic heart disease and coronary artery disease terms are often used interchangeably, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The certificate also confirmed it was originally thought Lance died of natural causes.
The John Wick actor was found dead at his home in Los Angeles on March 17.
Prior to his sudden death, Lance had been on a press tour for the upcoming fourth installment of the former mafia hitman portrayed by Keanu Reeves.
In a recent interview for Screen Rant, the 60-year-old spoke with co-star Ian McShane to discuss his role as Charon in the film.
He revealed the origin story of Winston and Charon’s friendship that he and McShane worked to develop over the years.
Lance, who was born in Baltimore, earned a music degree from the University of Rochester as well as a Master’s in Fine Arts from Yale.
Before his role in John Wick as the concierge at the Continental Hotel, Lance rose to stardom for playing Baltimore Police Department officer Cedrick Daniels on The Wire.
He played the straight-edge Baltimore cop in all five seasons of the HBO crime drama.
He also held recurring roles in a handful of other TV productions, such as Fringe, Bosch, Oz and Lost.
Lance also appeared in the films Angel Has Fallen, Godzilla Vs. Kong and One Night in Miami, among others.
He is slated to appear in the upcoming projects White Men Can’t Jump and Shirley, which are scheduled to release later this year.
The star will also reprise his role as Charon in the John Wick spin-off Ballerina, which has no release date.
He is survived by his wife, Stephanie Day, and two children he shared with his ex-wife, Suzanne Louis.
