James Stout

TUPPERS PLAINS--James Robert Stout passed away on April 15, 2021 at his home.
He was born on May 18, 1934 to Floyd and Vercia Stout of Long Bottom. He was a 1952 graduate of Chester High School and a member of St. Paul United Methodist Church in Tuppers Plains.
He married Dorothy Jean Barnhill on September 10, 1955 and they made their home in Tuppers Plains, Ohio for 64 years.
Jim served 2 years in the US Army and was a proud American and a very proud member of the 503rd Military Police Company. He retired from Alltel Corporation in 1993 and went on to be the Transportation Supervisor at Federal Hocking Schools.
Jim and Dorothy have enjoyed traveling the country having visited 49 of our United States of America. They had a lifelong love of the Ohio River and enjoyed camping, boating and water skiing with family and friends. They also enjoyed round and western square dancing and all the many great friends they made there.
He will forever be loved and missed by his family; Connie and Jimmer Soulsby, Terri and Pat Soulsby, Shannon, James, Olivia and Luke Burton, Devan, Tyler and Maverick Brothers, Tara Soulsby and Steven Soulsby.
He was preceded in death by his parents and wife. Also his brother Glen Stout and granddaughter Amanda Soulsby.
In his later years, Jim kept busy working many jigsaw puzzles which he proudly shared with his many Facebook friends along with a cheerful greeting and a reminder to go to church. You would very often notice him wearing a smiley face button…his reminder to everyone to just keep smiling.
