John Willam Layman

1948 - 2021

Towson, Maryland


John Layman, 72, passed away on Sunday, April 11, 2021. 

Born on October 21, 1948, he was the son of the late Raymond Lewis Layman and Thelma (Lyons) Layman.

Surviving are sons Christopher Layman, Andrew Layman, sister Barbara Layman Stine and nephew Mark Stine and his wife, Joann, as well as many cousins and two great nieces, Alyssa and Briana.

John had many different jobs, but hit his stride in the carpentry field.  For a time, he had his own business in Frostburg.  After moving to Baltimore with his family, he worked for independent homebuilders.  From January 1994 to the present, he taught Design and Woodworking to lower school boys at Gilman School in Baltimore.  It was simple.  He loved them and they loved him.

A funeral service will be held at Durst Funeral Home in Frostburg, MD on  Friday, April 16, 2021 at 2 pm                                   

In accordance with his wishes, John will be cremated and interred at Frostburg Memorial Park privately.
