Mike Layton - Devastating News.
 
I'm saddened to have to report that Mike Layton, VDF member Mlayton, was killed in a motorcycle accident. I just read about it over at DFO. Here's the link... https://www.drumforum.org/threads/ho...sed-on.200579/

I have no words to describe this horrible news. RIP Mike.

This truly breaks my heart. R.I.P. My drum brother. Prayers for his wife and family.

He was good to everybody he came into contact with. So glad I got the chance to meet him and talk with him and call him a friend. Peace and love to his family and friends. Heartbreaking!

This is Ben, owner of DFO, when I took over in 2011, Mike was an Admin and was a big help in navigating the admin area, he and I talked many times and I would have been lost without his help, he is sorely missed, there is a go fund me page, I think a link was posted here, hope members here can help, anything I am sure is greatly appreciated, Ben

This comment describes who Mike was to everyone who had the blessing of being touched by his life. He will be sorely missed. A rare soul.
