Sgt. Layne Coleman Jones
The Lord brought His angel home to be with Him on January 6, 2022. There are no words that could do justice to the extraordinary man Layne was. A heart of gold that never had an unkind word for anyone. He would move a mountain if it meant he was helping you and hang the moon for you while doing so. His presence was a gift.
Layne was a Sargent in the United States Army stationed at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, NC where in 2019 he was deployed to Afghanistan on a nine month assignment for Operation Freedom’s Sentinel; he then returned to Fort Bragg. Preceding Layne in passing were his Grandparents, Clyde and Bonnie Jones and Grandparents, Donald and Jeannie Williams as well as his Uncle Jeff Jones. Survived by Layne is his Father and Mother, Scott and Lanna, brothers Garrett and Hunter, sister JoLynn and brother in law Thomas Kerschner. Nieces, Callie Jo and Caelynn, nephews Colten and Chase Kerchner as well as Aunts, uncles, cousins, many, many friends and military brothers and sisters.
This world will not be the same without you in it our “Gentle Giant.” Know that you will always be loved and that you are a bright shining light in our hearts………. until we see again sweetheart.
