I have such great memories of Mr. Stout...first as the young daughter of a City Councilman that worked with Mr. Stout as he led the development of traffic safety in Fort Wayne as well as the concept of timed traffic lights. Then we became reacquainted as he volunteered for over 30 years as a guest speaker for Driver Education classes at Fort Wayne Community Schools. His message on safe driving was never old, and the impact he has had on hundreds of young drivers continues on today on the streets of Fort Wayne. We have lost a good one. "Well done, good and faithful servant!"
Praying for you and your family during this time. I remember him reading scripture and speaking at activities at the church.
I am very sorry my wife and I can not attend Walt's funeral as I considered him a good friend even thought I was his pastor for many years while serving Messiah Lutheran. He was our regular "Reader" for many years at our Praise Service, a position he enjoyed and I appreciated. He was a classic gentleman. I still cherish our relationship.
