Layton Gaskie, Donor
Share Layton's story with others:
He set a great example for us all...
Layton was an extremely hard worker, a loving and caring person and a special gift to all of us. He lived his life to the very fullest and never had a dull moment. He was a tremendously skilled carpenter, a great fisherman and hunter and a master of Ping-Pong! He set a great example for all of us. He showed us during his lifetime that you should work hard, play hard and never give up. We celebrate all that Layton has taught us and the impact that he made on our lives. He was a truly amazing gift, one that does not cease as he touches a multitude of families through his gift of life to others. Although he will be greatly missed, we count our blessings of each moment we had with him and we will allow his legacy to live on through us by giving, caring, and living our lives to the fullest.
As his donor card stated…
“During Layton’s short time with us, he lived his life fully and was an amazing husband, son, brother, uncle and friend. He had a special gift of making people happy and brought life to every situation. He was a very giving man and loved helping anyone in need. He always believed in the gift of organ donation. He signed up to be an organ donor when he was 16 years old and today as we mourn his loss, we celebrate the five people he has already helped through his wish and the countless others still to come. Even from Heaven, Layton continues to help others through the gift of life and we encourage others to sign up to do the same in his honor.”
