Just by chance I talked to Frank Layden on the phone as part of a routine business transaction. It took a minute before I realized who he was but I came away from the conversation impressed by his true modesty, genuine interest in people, his sense of humor and, most of all, his gift for gab. If you find yourself talking to this man you better grab yourself a chair because you'll lose track of time while he talks your ear off. It made my day to have a conversation with Frank Layden. Not because of his extraordinary accomplishments, but because he's someone who makes those around him lighten up and feel good. Maybe that's a gift he has that he tries to share with others. Maybe that's his magic.

Met Frank a couple of times recently. Very nice witty human being. But in all honesty his wife, Barbara, is much better looking!

Frank Layden is a truly a funny guy and a family man. I have know him and his wife and family all my life.Everytime he walks into a romm he just lights it up.He is true life of the party. A very caring person to.

I worked for the Jazz back in 91-93, opening the Delta Center for the Larry Miller group. Frank and I recorded radio commercials together for the old Pro Image chain and the fun I had with Frank in the studio was only topped by the wonderful conversations we shared in his office about pro sports franchises and how they treated their fans. I had brought my thoughts about the Royals to the get togethers and Frank liked the LA Dodgers approach in MLB. Frank, if you read this, I wish you well and want you to know I fondly remember and cherish those times we spent in SLC "back in the day"...many thanks, Glenn Loest
