We are sad to report that Steve Layton, a longtime Irvine resident, civic activist, and contributing cartoonist to Irvine Community News & Views, passed away this summer after a long illness.
Steve Layton contributed to the betterment of the entire Irvine community in many ways. A family man and a successful businessman into his eighties, Steve made time to be active in his homeowners association, supportive of the theater arts at UCI, and a remarkable contributor to Irvine Community News & Views.
His cartoons appeared frequently in ICNV, helping to highlight troubling issues in Irvine (and sometimes beyond) in colorful and typically humorous ways.
Steve leaves a rich legacy of cartoons from the past several years — a few of them re-published here. Where appropriate, we will continue to re-purpose and re-publish his cartoons. We are grateful that Steve Layton was — and still is — a part of our extended ICNV “family.”
