Alazar Thomas Laymon, 8, Wilmington, Del.: Aug. 22, 2013

082713-laymon-web-photoAlazar Thomas Laymon, age 8, of Wilmington, Del., went home to be with the Lord Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013.

Alazar was adopted in 2012 from Ethiopia and loved his new home “my America”. He enjoyed learning and was determined to learn English quickly. He was a first-grade student at Maple Lane Elementary School, Wilmington.

Alazar loved to smile, giggle and eat ice cream. Some of his best times were spent having Mommy read to him and going swimming with Daddy. He could be found riding his bike and playing and digging in the dirt with his Caterpillar tractor toys. He enjoyed singing songs about Jesus, attending church and praying. In the short time he was here he was able to visit Disneyland, Dutch Wonderland and Fun Land.

Alazar is survived by his loving parents, Rev. Thomas and Janice Breithaupt Laymon; grandmother, Eunice Breithaupt of Overbrook, Kan.; aunts and uncles, Anita Laymon, Boone, N.C., Susan and Bob Jones, Ft. Wayne, Ind., Charlotte Breithaupt, Dallas, Marilyn and Karl Peterjohn, Wichita, Kan.; cousins: Alex, Christina, Matt, Molly, Asa, Ellis, Valorie and family, Jonathan, and many other loving cousins.

Private graveside services were held Aug. 27, at Worden Cemetery, east of Overbrook. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Alazar’s memory to Sunday Breakfast Mission, 110 N. Poplar St., Wilmington, DE 19801. To send condolences, visit
