Rex Laymon, age 93, of Andrews, IN, passed to Heaven on April 16, 2021, at his home. Rex was born April 10, 1928, to Lurene Stouder Laymon and Ray Laymon in Huntington County. He married Carilyn Thorn in 1950, who preceded him in death. Rex lived most of his life in Polk Township of Huntington County. He graduated from Monument City High School in 1947. Rex was a farmer and specialized in dairy farming. He was featured in the Herald Press in the early 1950’s for installing one of the first stainless steel milk bulk tanks in Huntington County to cool the milk. Rex loved basketball and enjoyed a celebrated high school basketball career. Despite Monument City’s small size (8-10 per grade) without a school gym, the school was respected for consistently having competitive teams in Huntington County. Rex was inducted into the first Huntington County Sports Hall of Fame in basketball in 1977. Rex held the county record for the most free-throw points in one game for many years throughout the 1950’s. Rex also enjoyed bowling and square dancing. He and long-time companion Evelyn Krieg were members of the Belles & Beaus square dance group in North Manchester and Marion. Rex is survived by his daughters, Debra (John) Denzer, Rhnea (Charles) Livingston, Granddaughter, Caroline (Tyler) Durbin, Great Grandson, John Boone Durbin, Sister, Jan Coldren, Nephew, Dana (Sue) Coldren, Niece, Jenni (Patrick) Lambert, Step-granddaughter, Tammy (Doug) Weaver, and Step grandson, Tracy (Rhonda) Livingston.
