With sadness we mourn the passing of Layne Ross Robinson, 60, who passed away on February 9th 2021 after a brief battle with cancer. He was born July 2, 1960 in American Fork, Utah to Stanley Wayne Robinson and Lola Donna Ross Robinson. He graduated from American Fork High School, where his passion for set building began. He continued with a 40+ year career in the scenery business as a Construction coordinator and foreman working on theatre, movie, television and commercial sets. Layne was dedicated to his craft and in so shared his passion and talents with set builders artisans and craftspeople, as a teacher a mentor and a friend. He loved traveling and helping any and all people with projects and problems. He devoted his life to serving others without the acceptance of compensation or recognition. The only thing bigger than the hole he will leave in our hearts is the impact he has made on the people around him. Everywhere he went, he made the world a better place.
