David Glynn Layfield


A funeral service celebrating the life of David Glynn Layfield, 56, will be held at 2:00 PM, Friday, January 19, 2024, at Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Coushatta, LA, with Bro. Richard Carey and Bro. James Hester officiating. Interment will follow in Holley Springs Cemetery in the Martin community. The family will receive friends from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM, Thursday, January 18, 2024, at Kilpatrick’s Rose-Neath Funeral Home in Coushatta, LA.

He made his entrance into this world November 18, 1967, and left this world on January 12, 2024. In between those two dates, you could find him one of two places; on water with a pole in his hand or with his family with a grand baby in his lap. For a long time, you could probably see him putting out fires or helping someone in the community who needed their lawn mowed. He may have made you laugh a time or two, or you may have wanted to box him sometimes; but whenever David was present you would definitely leave laughing.

He was preceded in death by his father, Edward Lorraine Layfield. His mother, Ruth Ellen Tilley and his papa/daddy John James. His brother, Wayne Layfield. His late wife, Edith Layfield.

To carry on his memory are his wife of Coushatta, LA; Stacey Layfield. His sons, Kevin Layfield of Dubberly, LA. Christopher Struk of Houston, TX; Jonathan Struk of Houston, TX and Justin Struk of San Diego, CA. His daughters, Kimberly Layfield and her husband Dakota Hunt of Haughton, LA. Kayla Layfield and her partner Clay Crochet of Bossier City, LA. Meggan Roy and her partner James, of Winfield, LA.  His brother, Greg Layfield. His sisters; Michelle Layfield, Mary James, Martha James, Holly Ladner, and Teresa Edwards. His brother and sister-in-law, David Emerson and Cody Cryer.  His precious other mama, Cindy Layfield. He leaves behind his pride and joys, his grandchildren. Michael, RT, Alera, Chloe, Ellie, Anna, Amelia and his fishing buddy Nate. A slew of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends that he loved very much in this world.

Laying him to rest will be the pall bearers as followed Jimmy Dickson, Josh Phillips, Nick Stevens, Michael McDuffy, Orlando Moody, and Robert Hunter. Honorary pall bearers are David Emerson, Paul Edwards, and Steven Schneider.

 His family at the Red River Parish Fire Department. He never met a stranger and to him, his friends made an impact on him far greater than he could ever say. So to each of you, thank you for being there for our father.
