Layton R. Halverson
HOLMEN — Layton R. Halverson, 68, of Holmen passed away peacefully Sunday, January 3, 2021, at Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse. He was born November 11, 1952 to Lloyd and Lorraine Halverson. His early years included attending the Long Coulee School and graduating in 1970 from Holmen High School. He also attended WTC.
Layton was raised on a dairy farm which instilled in him a strong “make-do” attitude. Always striving to improve himself, he pursued various career fields in the area of sales from animal nutrition to insurance to working at Pawn America. When there was a day off, he could be found on the golf course playing a round or two with his friends. And, of course, there was always the 19th hole.
He was the proud grandfather of eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
He is survived by his ex-wife Joyce Halverson, step-children: Kimberly (Steve) Jones and Tim (Michelle) Smith. Grandchildren: Rayeann Jones, Danielle (Alex Tinbush) Bainbridge, Jeramy Bainbridge, Brookelyn Jones, Melissa (Colin) Riley & their children Cameron, Madyson and Makayla, Kari (Dustin) Frost & their children Hadley and Lucy, Jamie Smith, and Emily (Tyler Blair) Smith. He is further survived by his sister, Betty (Steve) Sacia, as well as an aunt, nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Phyllis Knudtson, and brother-in-law, Leslie Knudtson.
Layton’s wishes were for no services at this time but to have family and friends come together for a celebration of his life, which due to COVID will be held at a later date.
The family would like to thank the paramedics and Mayo Clinic Health System staff for their very kind and compassionate care.
