Doug (Slugo) Layne, the “Materman”, born August 6,1955, passed away on October 12, 2021 at his home.
Doug was raised in Bountiful and graduated from Viewmont high School as the first student in Davis County to leave school and return to graduate the next year. Doug worked in construction and made many close and long lasting friends during his career. He had a great work ethic, integrity and truly believed in the importance of doing things the right way, even though it may take a little longer. He built his own home and was a master gardener, especially anything that had to do with tomatoes. He even won many blue ribbons at the state fair. He mastered the art of making keepsake boxes and had just began to design and assemble rocking chairs. Doug was an extraordinary dog trainer, avid waterfowl hunter that loved to teach the sport to others, especially the youth. Doug loved Jesus and his family and would always go above and beyond to help someone in need.
Doug married his soul mate and best friend Carla Hancock in 1975 and together they raised their family – Jenifer (Jerry) Gorder, Kimmy (Darren) Reed, and Andrew (Elise) Layne, and bonus daughter Melony Pulliam. They were blessed with 5 grandchildren, Chevy Tolman, Brentley Dawn and Rex Gahley, Elizabeth and Amelia Layne and bonus granddaughter Kenna Dyer. Doug is survived by his siblings Wes Layne, Beverly (Dell) Decker, Jeffrey (JoEllen) Layne and DeeAnn (Ron) Schultz, bonus brothers Rick, Kelly, Paul, Lynn, Jimi, and John and sisters Heidi and Jessica and truly loved the Oviatt family. He was preceded in death by his parents Budd and Ruth Layne.
