He served in the U.S.NAVY for four years. He married and had four (4) children Tina Marie Layman, Ronnie Lee Layman, David Eugene Layman and Kevin Allen Layman. Walter is preceded in death by sons David Eugene Layman and Kevin Allen Layman. He was from the Sunbury, Ohio area most of his life and owned several business including remodeling, roofing and siding.

He loved to fish and hunt as he loved the outdoors. He had a home in the country…a dream he had for years. Later he moved to Marengo, Ohio and most recently lived in Mt. Gilead, Ohio. Since retirement, he has had a group of buddies who met every morning for “coffee and chatter”. He was very likeable by all and will be sadly missed.
