Brent Lynn Layton, age 43, of Magna, UT passed away March 13, 2022. He is
survived by his father and mother Sharman and Karen Layton, brother, Brian
R Holtz, sister, Jennifer J(Brad) Barclay, his partner, Rebecca Peterson and
her son, Marcus Marelli, along with five nephews and two nieces.
Brent grew up in South Ogden, UT and later moved to Reno, NV where he
attended McQueen high. He then went on to Davis Technical College where he
received his Journeyman Electrician license. He lived in Magna, UT where he
enjoyed hiking, hanging out at home, karaoke at the local joint and playing
with his dogs, Yeager, and Whiskey. Brent loved forging and making knives for
his family and friends. Brent was “The Man of the Outdoors” from biking, four
wheeling, motorcycle riding, ax throwing, skiing, fishing, hiking, and spending
time at the cabin. Brent may have had some struggles but lived life to the
fullest. He would do anything for his family, friends, coworkers and loved
them all. He made everyone who knew him laugh, cry, and always created “the
moment” in whatever he did.
Our family is praying that Brent is finally at peace.
Services will be held at Kaysville cemetery on March 26th at 11 am, all are welcome.
