In Memory of Layne and Diana Clarke

Friday, July 28th, 2017

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the passing of Layne and Diana Clarke. On July 26, Layne and Diana were traveling with another couple when their plane crashed just outside of Ogden, Utah.

The Clarke family started Automotive and Industrial Supply in 1996. In 2011, the three AIS locations partnered with Industrial Finishes, with the fourth store in Logan being added in 2014. As many of you know, the AIS team in Utah is a very tight-knit group of friends and family who have been particularly struck by this loss.

Layne and Diana are survived by their children, Alexis, Hannah, Jaden and Jordan, as well as their extended family. We will provide details for those of you who wish to offer your support for the Clarke family as they emerge.

This painful loss impacts us all on a deeply personal level. We know that many of you are profoundly saddened by the loss of your good friends. AIS has long-standing relationships with many customers and suppliers, and Layne was very personally and closely involved with many of these relationships. Our sympathies extend to you all.

Despite the sorrow we all feel, our team at AIS in Utah is strong and our dedication to supporting our business partners remains undeterred. We will strive to communicate with everyone in regards to both personal considerations as well as business considerations as we respond to this tragedy.

In times like these, it’s even more important for us to value the precious gifts of life, family and faith that we’ve been given. We will all miss Layne and Diana and the indelible mark they’ve left on our lives. We are richer for having known them, and we will keep their family in our prayers.
