    Layne was a good man full of smiles and stories. The kind of guy you can easily talk to for hours. It was pretty tough hearing the news, but the only thing that makes it a little easier is picturing him and Mike fishing from a heavenly dock together again. Rest in peace sir.

    My deepest sympathies to Lottie and Laynes family…I lived across the hall in the TKE fraternity house from Layne and shared so many great times together with much laughter. He was a smart and loving man and we shared many thoughts and ideas together….He was always ready to help and make things better….My deep condolences to Laurel, a beautiful sister who he loved deeply….I will miss this great guy and brother….RIP!

    When I was in high school I’d stop by to hang out with Michael and Layne and I would have a chat. He was always very kind to me and even after Michael’s passing Layne and Lottie both brought me closer to the family. This is the type of people the Hermanson’s are, always thinking of others. I have nothing but love for you all and I’m sorry for the loss of Layne.

  12. Todd Knain says:

    My condolences to the family on their loss. I served on the TKE Board of Advisors with Layne in the 2000s and appreciated all of his insight and experience. Rest in peace, Frater.

    Just found out about Layne’s passing, I went to school with him from 3rd grade through 10th, then moved to Colstrip, Montana in 1968. My mom gets the Crosby paper so that’s how I found out and looked up obituary online. I often think of my former classmates, how the years have flown by. I send my heartfelt condolences to Layne’s family. Rest in peace.
