A Gathering to Celebrate the Life of Kerry Layton
Kerry represented the best of the best, went out of his way to say something nice to everyone and enjoy everything the music and the surf had to offer - He will be greatly missed by so many.
A Few Words from Our Friend Jen Mikle who captured the spirit of the man so many of us were lucky enough to experience Kerry’s spirit first hand. Whether you knew him a lifetime or a moment he made you smile and we he will be dearly missed.
Jean Mikle: So it’s a beautiful morning at the Jersey Shore, bright sun, cool breeze. The kind of day we wait all winter for. And I’m thinking of my friend Kerry. On a day like this he’d almost certainly been in Asbury Park, sitting on “his bench” just south of Convention Hall. He’d ride his bike down from his house in Deal and set up camp, putting down a towel, taking off his shirt to soak up the sun and just sit there and watch the parade of people pass by on the boardwalk. He used to crack me up because he always had this little transistor radio, tuned to either WCBS-FM or 90.5 The Night; a lot of times you could only vaguely hear the sounds coming out of that tiny radio but Kerry had to have the music with him at all times. His observations about the people passing by were completely unique - to say the least - but what was amazing about Kerry is the pure joy he’d get from just sitting in the sun, checking out the scene. He loved talking to people who passed by; he was most definitely the chief “ambassador” at the Stone Pony, but when he was on the boardwalk I always thought of him as an ambassador for Asbury Park itself. The thing about Kerry is, he never lost that innocent quality; the ability to be intrigued and amazed by the small miracles of daily life. When you think about him, and the things he said (Lynne calls them “Kerry-isms”), you really can’t help but smile, or even laugh out loud. That’s a gift, I think. I sure will miss him, and I can't even imagine how difficult this must be for my dear friend Pam (they were together almost 50 years) and all of his family. Please keep them in your thoughts in these difficult days.

The Asbury Park Toy Drive helps hundreds of families in Asbury Park by providing toys as well as much needed winter coats to those in need. As the demand has grown for families who needed help, this charity has been able to sponsor field trips and get back-to-school supplies for kids. But Christmastime is their passion. The organization will be collecting unwrapped toys in the lobby of the Paramount Theatre on the evening of the concert.
Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Monmouth County provide innovative, responsive, cost effective, non-sectarian human services that enhance the quality of life for children, families and the aged in our community. Some of this support extends beyond what can be accomplished within the confines of their office. It might include home delivery of food for someone who is not ambulatory or shopping for someone who cannot afford to buy the foods that are required for one on a restricted diet. At the core of these efforts is the belief that people need to feel welcome and connected to those who care about their well-being.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Monmouth County is a private non-profit organization that serves children that come from some of the most difficult circumstances in the County. Their outreach includes providing a safe environment to learn and grow, fostering ongoing relationships with caring adult professionals, providing life-enhancing programs and character development experiences while providing hope and opportunity.
