LCpl Travis Layfield, loved Life, and was very comfortable in his own skin.
Travis grew up in Fremont, Ca. Graduated from Washington Hi-school, in 2003'.
Travis loved sports, played Football, and Baseball, had an amazing arm on him as a catcher, and could barrel it down the pipeline.
Travis cared for everyone, and at dances, he would never let there be a wall-flower, he made everyone he touched and knew feel special.
In Jr. Hi, Travis went into a Navy Sea Cadet program. Excelled in that for a few yrs. Once in Hi-school Travis changed his mind to go into the Marines. 10 days after Graduation, Travis was off to bootcamp, and was so excited, and couldn't wait to become a US Marine.
Travis trained at San Diego MCRD, and then off to Camp Pendelton. 8 months later Travis was deployed to Iraq. A few weeks later Travis was killed in Action, with 9 other Marine Brothers, and a Navy Corpsman, in an Ambush battle in the streets of Ramadi, at only age 19.
2 and a half yrs. later we found out Travis has a son, Dylan Thomas. He is a big part of our lives, now 13 yrs. old.
Not a day goes by that your not in it, my Son. You are loved and missed beyond words. I Love you...forever.
