Uncle Dean was a great family man and will be missed by all who knew him. We shared many family times throughout the years. Trips to Alabama remain as some of my fondest childhood memories. I loved him very much.
He will forever hold a place in my heart.

I love this picture of Mr. Stout. The look on his face is as sweet as his soul. I was blessed to know this man, and I will truly miss him.

Growing up with Dean in our lives has been a true blessing from God.
By proclaiming it and by living it he made it clear that Jesus lived in his heart.  We will never forget all the laughs and times that we spent together over the last 45 years.  As kids the first thing we would ask after getting off the bus was "are Dean and Eloise coming over tonight".  They always paid attention to us, and as kids made us feel like we were adults. They were our parents best friends and I remember setting around for hours on end listening to their stories while drinking iced tea under the shade trees in New Haven.  We thank God that he put Dean and Eloise in our lives.

So sorry to hear of Deans passing. He was a great guy and a great friend. He will be missed by many but now he is resting in the arms of our wonderful savior. God bless all of you and remember dean you are gone but will never be forgotten. Rest on Dean until we all see you again.

Dean was my buddy who taught me about gardening and Eloise taught me about flowers. Each spring when I plant, I think of them both and how I use to tease them by admitting that I "coveted" their yard and when my yard grows up it wanted to be like theirs. Dean was a good friend to my Dad too and a pillar for First Baptist Church. Makes me smile to thank of him and Eloise hugging and then him and Dad singing together again. Sending Peggy and the boys a hug.

Dean is a very good friend, neighbor, and cousin. He will be greatly missed, but we are reassured that we will one day see him again. Dean wanted nothing more than to tell people of his love for God. He taught us how to care for others. Dean shared whatever he had with others. We are so happy he is with Jesus. See you soon, Dean. We love you!
