This man is such a loss from everyday life and community. He always offered a kind smile, a good laugh and a “brotherly” concern for others. He was a treasure and will be missed daily. My deepest condolences to his family.

Our condolences to the family. We are Layton's neighbors across the street. Layton was a kind man who I enjoyed having good conversation with. We shared a love of fur babies and I know he adored his Bear, Emmett and his Koi. We're really going to miss him and Emmett. You all are in our prayers and if you need anything just ask.
