I knew Layne all through Junior High and High School. We dated friends and found ourselves together often. We even went out after High School.
The last time I saw him was at a Choice Expedition Meeting. He was helping to teach me how to build Lourainna stoves for the people in the mountains above Whanawhato in Mexico. I could see that he did not feel well but he never said a word about having cancer. I wish he had told me.
He was a great person, funny and good! I happy to have known him

Layne was such a wonderful person. Even as a teenager, he was a person of honesty & integrity. It was an honor to have dated him. He was one of those people who help mold who you are by their influence. I am a better person because I knew him.
I hadn't seen Layne for years before his death but I still think of him with fondness & gratitude.

Layne was a good friend and a wonderful person. He came over one Christmas morning and got coerced into staying for brunch - we have old movies of him sitting at the dining room table with our entire extended family. He didn't blink - gracious and comfortable in any situation. I have wonderful memories of him - he was creative, fun-loving and kind.
