Mason Allen Layne, 61, of Rocky Mount, Virginia passed away on November 4, 2020 in Lewis Gale Medical Center, Salem.
Mason was born November 29, 1958 in Clifton Forge, Virginia and graduated from Clifton Forge High School in 1977. He received his Bachelors Degree from Radford University in 1982 and his Masters Degree in Health Care Administration from Mercer University in 1996. Mason has been employed as a Nursing Home Administrator for the past 25 years. He loved working with the elderly and was an advocate for seniors.
Mason was preceded in death by his parents, William “(Whiskers) and Mary Montgomery Layne.
He is survived by the love and joy of his life, his son Jacob William Layne of Rocky Mount. He is also survived by his sisters, Susan Layne of Rocky Mount, and Paula (Donald) Carey of Oklahoma City, his niece Melanie Carey of Oklahoma City, his nephew Dale (Jamie) Carey of Oklahoma City, his ex-wife/special friend Angie Layne of Rocky Mount, and his yellow lab Lulu (aka Marley).
Mason loved life and spending time with his son – coaching his son’s sports teams, going on beach trips and fishing trips with his son, and every part of being a full time dad. He and Jacob were both avid sports fans – and huge Virginia Tech fans (Go Hokies!). Of great pride to him were the years that he coached Jacob’s basketball team (the Rocky Mount Tar Heels) – the last 4 years of which they were undefeated. Jacob’s current baseball team (the Salem Blaze) was their most recent focus.
His wit and outgoing personality will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. We will miss and remember him every day.
A funeral service will be held Tuesday, November 10, 2020 at 2:00 PM in the chapel of Nicely Funeral Home, Clifton Forge with Mr. Chris Fisher officiating. Interment will follow in Alleghany Memorial Park, Low Moor. Pallbearers will be Tyler Broughman, Brian Broughman, Kippy Broughman, Jack Simpson, Donnie Simpson, Bobby Simpson, and Joe Simpson. The family will receive friends on Tuesday afternoon from 12:00 PM until the time of service at Nicely Funeral Home.
The family suggests memorial tributes take the form of contributions to SWVA Youth Baseball Association, 176 Forrest Drive, Salem, VA 24163.

I am so sorry for your father's passing Jacob, Angie and the family. Jacob your father loved you so much and was always a happy man and full of life. Your father was a sports activist. I remember he was like a kid at his birthday when I worked there I would make him a pound cake. I know he would buy you presents and go on and give them to you. He loved you so much. I remember Mason's mom and dad such sweet people. They were so proud and loved you. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Angie and the family. I know Mason will missed by all. God Bless you Jacob and your family.

Susan and the rest of Mason's family - I am very sorry to hear of Mason's passing. As others have spoken to his wit, that is what I remember the most about him from our high school days. He made you laugh and smile. The world certainly needs more of that. I am sure those that share his life today will greatly miss him. My prayers are with you all. May God bless you with his grace and peace during this difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear of Mason's passing. Both of my parents were at Pheasant Ridge over the past 10 years and I met Mason there. Every quarter there was a meeting with the staff and family members. Mason would start off joking. I remember when Jacob got his dog. Mason told us about that and he always talked about Jacob. He loved you very, very much. Mason and I did not always see eye to eye, but we still picked back and forth at each other. He will be missed by those who knew him. I pray that you all are comforted by your special memories of him. RIP Mason.
