After 37 bright and joyful years, Brian Christopher Layton, our Husband, our Father, our Brother, and our Friend, passed away in Mesa, Arizona, August 14, 2012. He burst into the world January 30, 1975 in Provo, Utah. He completed Mountain View High School, was thrilled with a 2 year LDS church mission in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, graduated from Arizona State University in Accountancy, and worked dutifully for his family as an accountant. He found Paula Prince, courted her, loved her, and was married October 11, 2003 in the Mesa Arizona Temple. His best friends were his adorable 3 year old son Max and his precious 8 month old son Jack. He was such a kind hearted, loving, and sensitive soul - we loved him because he first loved us, and guile was never found with him. He was always the best of us. He enjoyed being an Eagle Scout and was a Scout Leader where he shared his zeal for the outdoors - a hiker, climber, rappeller, skier, camper and wake boarder. Similarly, if it was a sport, he played it and loved it. His viewing will be held Sunday, August 19, 2012 from 6-8 pm, at Meldrum Mortuary, 52 N. Macdonald, Mesa, AZ. Services will be held on Monday, August 20, 2012 at 11:00 am at the LDS Mesa East Stake Center, 2228 E. Brown Rd., Mesa, AZ, with a viewing 1 hour preceding. A Brian Layton Memorial Fund at Desert Schools Credit Union has been created for his family - reference the last four digits, 3142. He will always be remembered by his cherished wife Paula Prince Layton, his two sons Max and Jack, his parents and siblings who love him - Clay and Barbara Layton, Tricia (Brian Weinert), Mark (Danielle), Michelle (Jeff Adams), and Stephen - and his grandparents Richard and Pat Michaud; 5 nieces and nephews, and loads of great and loving aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, and friends. He is already missed.
