If there was an award for being the top of your trade and having the skills to be exceptional with people you would be a permanent recipient.
You possessed a degree of kindness, genuine nature, and consideration of others that made you the best at what you did.
Your departure is a hard one to take. Mostly because we could use a million more people like you to be an example to the rest of us for how to live.
I know I speak for many when I say, we benefited from crossing paths with you. Thank you Layne.

You were always awesome and so helpful, anytime any of us had any questions about our cars or were confused about a service, you explained things so it could be understand. We were devastated to hear you were gone!
RIP Layne.

RIP Wrong Way Layne! You will be missed with all those great stories and all that mechanical stuff in that brilliant mind. Thanks for helping and advising during and after the Jones Creek Trail Riders years. Chili dogs will never be better than Hangover Scrambles chili dogs. I guess we know who's doing the cooking in heaven now. Rest in peace friend!

We will miss Layne, he always worked on our 68 mustang with Tony. Whenever we called he knew who we were just by our voice and was so friendly every time we went to Ron's RV. Our prays are with his family.
