Ronald R. Laymon

Mount Vernon, Ohio
Ronald R. Laymon, born October 31, 1944 and in his re-birth of August 13, 2016 lived his life to the fullest with no regrets.
Ron was a member of the NHRA Racing Association, National Trotting Association and Colonial City Moose Lodge of Mount Vernon. His most proud accomplishment was that he owned and operated Laymon Trucking in which he was an over the road truck driver for 40 years.
In 2005, Ron beat cancer but later struggled with COPD and congestive heart failure. He never let his disease define who he was. After meeting Ron, you knew he was a caring and loving man that never met a stranger.
Ron spent his retirement in building and racing his 1992, 582 Chevy Camaro and he found a love for horses and horse racing with his father-in-law, Eldon Spearman. Some of Ron’s most used quotes were “You may not like us, but you won’t forget us” or “People don’t always do what you think they should, but who is to say what is right?”
Ron is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Candace (Spearman) Laymon, his two daughters, Laura (Brian) Frazier and Christin (Wesley) Garver, four grandchildren who made his world complete, Makayla Frazier, Griffin, Owen and Sophia Garver. Brian and Wesley held a special place in his heart because of their devotion to family.
He is also survived by his brothers and sisters, James (Kathy) Laymon, Richard (Shirley) Laymon, George (Jean) Fowler, Judith (Bob) Tubbs and a nephew, Andrew Laymon.
Ron was preceded in death by his mother, Irene (Horn) Fowler, his father, Howard “Ike” Laymon, step father, Harold Fowler and nephew, Sgt. Benjamin Laymon.
A funeral service will be held on Friday at 11 a.m. at the New Life Community Church, 9955 State Route 95, Fredericktown, Ohio 43019 with Pastor John Burkhart and Pastor Joe Overholt officiating. The family will observe a private burial in Green Valley Cemetery. The Snyder Funeral Home of Fredericktown is honored to serve the family of Ronald R. Laymon.
In lieu of flowers, Ron would wish you to find a child in need of love and attention and give of yourself unselfishly.
