KLFY is reporting 101.1FM KBON personality Layton Thibodeaux is dead at the age of 66. Known as "The Spicy Cajun", Layton was a staple on-air in the Acadiana area.

Thibodeaux has passed away due to complications with COVID-19. In St. Landry Parish folks heard him on the radio, but Layton was also a musician as well. He was a father of eight and known as a very religious man of the community. KBON had asked listeners to "lift him up in prayer" as he had been on a ventilator.

Layton Thibodeaux will be missed by all.
