My heart aches when I think about your loss. Your husband was an amazing man. Please take care of yourself. Be strong for the sake of others who love you and I will be in touch.
Mr. Stout's work on black high school sports teams in Kentucky is a testament to his roots. "Overtime," now in His Court!
I was saddened to learn of Lou's passing only today. I know you and Juan are heartbroken from your loss. Know my thoughts and prayers are with you. I know you are extremely proud of your life with Lou as well you should be with so many accomplishments.
You Dear Ann are often thought of and still viewed as a mentor and life changing teacher. Love never dies.
Your old friend and student, Jane
Anna and Family - may God be with you in this time of sorrow as you begin the healing. Years have passed but so many memories linger.

I greatly admired Mr. Stout. He was devoted to encouraging and helping young people. It was a privilege to know him. He will be greatly missed.
My deepest sympathy to family and friends. May God comfort you with the strength you need in the days ahead. (2 Thessalonians 3:16)
How precious your loving kindnessis O GOD.And in the shadow of your wings the sons of men themselves take refudge.
I'm happy to have known Louis. He had both grace and determination--a rare combination. And he used them to do things that others had not done before.
Mrs. Stout and family. I would like to extend my sincere condolences to you all. I didn't know Mr. Stout well, oh but, I've heard many stories and testimonies from friends that he coached at Tates Creek years ago, nothing but wonderful things. Mrs. Stout I was one of your Winburn Jr High students back in the early 70's. Know that my prayers are with your family. Another angel has taken his wings and flown on to heaven.
May GOD rest your soul! Prayers to all the Family and Friends!!!!

With Deep Sympathy,
Ann and Juan, sorry that we were unable to attend the services for our Cousin Louis. You both are in our prayers and we send our Love and heart felt sympathy. Louis was a great guy.
The families of Jackie and Fran Wilson
Anna, Juan & Family,
Although we were not able to attend the visitation or home going services for Louis, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
As we fondly shared memories of Louis as friend, neighbor, and professional, my wife Ventra, reminded me that she first met Louis when Governor Collins asked her to Chair the Kentucky Martin Luther King Holiday Commission that included Mr. Stout as an important member.
Thanks to him and others on the commission, the MLK holiday and landmarks throughout Kentucky will forever be part of his legacy.
God bless and keep his loving arms around you.
I will continue to pray for your family
You all are in our prayers.
After reading your book, Shadows of the Past, I can sincerely say that you planted seeds of faith, truth and love that touched the lives of all who knew you.

Reading about Mr. Stout really impressed me as a young man. The world needs more people like him that care about children. “For God is not unrighteous so as to forget your work...” Hebrews 6:10.
Our prayers go out to you and your family for that loss that you feel. We are praying for you.
TO ANN, JUAN AND THE STOUT FAMILY; MAY GOD BLESS AND COMFORT YOU IN YOUR LOSS. WE WERE VERY SHOCKED TO HEAR OF HIS PASSING TODAY.
To Anna and Family: We are so sorry to hear of your loss. We are remembering you in our prayers. May God strengthen and keep you in the days ahead.

I knew Louis Stout for over thirty years--like my father before me (who past away himself in April this year, but not before starting to work with Lou on one final project attempting to help bring the hope and promise of sport to Native Americans). The AAU lost not simply two of its presidents this year in Louis and my father, but two of its greatest men ever, who led the organization through the storms of great crisis. The profound integrity and moral strength of Louis Stout shone no brighter than when he was working with sports and particularly with the youth whose lives he touched through the AAU and so many other groups. Those who remain behind still see the light of his many contributions, which have left this a better world because he was here. However much we may feel the loss of his passing, we must be grateful for what he left behind, contributions whose legacy will outlast us all. That legacy follows his name on his final journey into eternity and shall remain eternally in the hearts of those Lou left behind, lovingly, as he takes his well deserved place in the heart of God.

to the stout family you have our bless from the henderson family paris,ky
I will always remember Louis from my early days of coaching the Manual girls team.Louis was a fixture at the State Tournment and the 349 club.He will be missed,Ken Smith.
May the GOD of comfort be with you and your family in these tragic times. let our prayers be healing to your heart.
To the the family of Louis Stout - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that he will be missed by many.
Dear Ann, Juan, and the entire Stout family,
I join with so many others who knew Louis in offering my deepest sympathy on his passing. I share your grief. Louis meant a lot to my family. He was especially a true and dear friend to my father, and was with him the morning he passed.
The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much money one had or what possessions they accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched, and the sorrow they left behind. If the outpouring of sympathy on Louis's loss is any indication, and it most certainly is, you can proudly and confidently say that his, indeed, was a life well-lived. His passing will leave a void in the hearts of everyone who knew him.
My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you.
Mrs Stout & Family
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Your husband left a beautiful legacy for his family. I did not have the pleasure of meeting him.May all the memories of your life together sustain
God Bless you.
His greatness as a man was demostrated by his by his marriage to a great woman. Thinking of you Anna,
Ann and Juan,
I send to you both my heartfelt condolences. Sincerely, Billie Stout.
Dear Mrs. Stout & Juan,
Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during this time of the lost of your loved one, we will continue to keep you in our prayers.
Anna, Juan and family, we are so sorry for your loss. We are also blessed that Louis has been in our lives. We are traveling beginning tomorrow morning and will not be able to attend the services. Louis was a dear, dear friend and colleague and will be deeply missed. Our prayers are with your family and may God bless each of you.
I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family.
My deepest sympathy to the Stout family. May Louis loving memories, and God's word at Psalms 55:22 bring you comfort at this most difficult time.

I was saddened to hear of your husband's passing. May you be encouraged remembering:
Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on. Cherished memories will never fade, because one loved is gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart; for as long as there is a memory, they live within our heart.
I am your K-State '58 Classmate

Prayers and thoughts going to Mrs.Stout and Juan. I recollect Mr.Stout helped Ms.Catlett at times with the girls basketball team drills at Winburn in early 70's. Being a fellow Cynthianan, he always was so kind and took me under his wing. Throughout my entire adult life, i have heard so many kind words about Louis. Mrs. Stout (aka Mama Stout) was my fav Home Ec teacher. I am so sorry for your loss. Love you
Mr Stout was one of my teachers at Tates Creek in the late 60's. RIP my friend!!
Ann, my thoughts and prayers are with you, Uncle Jimmy and the rest of the family.
Ann and family, my sincere condolences to you and the entire family..May God continue to Bless and keep you all.
May it comfort you to know that God, as well as others, care about your feelings at this time.
Was an honor to take three different "Smoking Kills" Kentucky baseball AAU teams to the national tournaments at Disney World from 1998-2000. Definitely a first class organization. Thank you, Mr. Stout.
Another Lexington Legend has gained entry into the kingdom of God. I have no doubt that he received his message" well done thy good and faithful servant". Mr. Stout was truly one of a kind! His gentle smile, manly stature, love for family, children sports and community were certainly traits that defined him. I will forever treasure my autographed copy of his writings found in his book " Shadows of the Past".
To the family and many friends , rejoice as you mourn the passing of a life well lived . I pray God's blessings of strength and comfort upon each of you. R.I.P. Mr. Stout!
In the summer/fall of 1972.
Me and my brother Dwight Hughes and childhood friend Ronnie Ross lived on Rand ave. Lex.Ky.
Mr.Louis Stout would come and pick us up in his station-wagon on a couple of
occasions to take us to Castlewood park
to play in the league park basketball
The numbers to our jersey's were 3,6,9.
I can not remember who wore what number
but those were the numbers that was given to each of us. Mr. Stout made
sure we got there on time at the beginning of the basketball games but
after every game Mr.Stout made sure we
made our own way back home by walking from the park back to our street of
Mr.Stout was always (RIGHT ON TIME).
And from his program of The Scholastic
Ball Report that was shown every Saturday! Mr.Stout had a saying at the
end of each program.
(KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE BALL)
Rest in Peace:
To the Pucketts the AAU is family and losing a family member is heartbreaking. Lou's thoughtful, predictable and brilliant style along with his gentle and comforting laugh will be missed but not forgotten. My thoughts and prayers to his family and the entire AAU family. With sorrow and much fondness.
Met Lou in 1959, freshmen at Regis College in Denver, recruited by Joe B. Hall to play hoops with James Ray Jones.
They had game. Lou was cool before cool was cool...class...will to be the best, and he was.
RIP Lou. We love and miss you.
Lou was a friend from our first days at Regis , evidencing his love of sport and sharing his wisdom. Less than 6 weeks ago we enjoyed his company in Denver planning a trip to Joe's induction and our golf game next summer.
May Lou rest in peace and enjoy the green fairways of Heaven. May Anna and his family know that we have them in our prayers and share with them the sadness if these days. God Bless you.

I was very saddened to hear of Louis' passing. He was a mentor and father figure to me. He got me started in basketball officiating and softball umpiring. I admired him so much as a leader and Trailblazer. You are in our thoughts and prayers......Please read 1st Thessalonians 5:18 for some comfort.

God bless the Stout family, sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Stout, a caring,black man, educator and friend to many.
To the Stout Family,
What a wonderful person/man/employer Mr. Stout was. I had the great opportunity to work for him at the KHHSC and be his Executive Assistant. In the short time I worked for him, he taught me so much. He also encouraged me to be a mentor for one of our office's young employee to show her how a "young woman" should dress and carry herself in an office setting, which told he had a lot of confidence in me. I will always be thankful for everything I learned from him and I made sure that he knew how I felt. My prayers will continually be with you during this difficult time.
Yours -n- Christ Always
Mrs. Anna, Juan and family - I extend my deepest sympathy. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

With deepest sympathy. May the peace of God be with you and comfort you.

My tears fall and my heart mourns with you Mrs. Stout and Juan. In my mind, I shall never forget what Mr.Louis Stout did for me 29 years ago. Looking back now, I know it was God Almighty using Mr. Stout to help save my life. Every time our paths crossed after the years had gone by I hugged him and shook his hand and expressed my gratitude. The last time I saw him was at CHASE bank on Nandino Road. I gave him a hug and thanked him again and today I thank God for having made a man like Louis Stout. He is asleep in the Lord now but someday in the after life I hope to greet and hug him again.
You are and will be missed.
Mrs. Stout and Juan - our thoughts and prayers are with you in this your hour of bereavement.

Memories of Mr. Stout bring a smile to my face. He was my American History teacher at Tates Creek High School, and even though I didn't like history, I enjoyed his class. He was a fine teacher, and kept the class interesting. May God be with his family.

Ann, Juan and the rest of the family, I am so sorry about Stout's passing. My heart goes out to you and Juan. You and Stout seemed to be glued together to make a wonderful, loving couple. I remember the first time I saw Stout at the Kentucky Historical Society's Board meeting, I was so happy to see another African American--especially a good, strong, intelligent man. When I learned that he had published a book, I suggested that he put some copies in the bookstore so that everybody who visited the Kentucky History Center (Frankfort, Ky), would be able to see some of accomplishments and would get to know him on another level. He will truly be missed. May you and Juan find comfort in those great memories that you shared.
A great man with a wonderful heart always ready to help. You will be missed. This city and the country has lost a great man.
Mr. Stout taught me one of the most important lessons of my life; and that was to stand and face my problems. I'm sure he taught many others about life as well.
So sorry to hear of Coach Stout's passing. His dedication to young people was exemplary. He will be missed by many.
It can be so hard to face the first year without your loved one, but the love of family and friends can carry you through.
I feel like I knew Louis Stout personally, but I never had the pleasure of actually meeting him. I listened to him on Friday nights on the radio and loved to hear him on the Ball Report. What a fine man we lost. Keep his legacy alive and continue his good works.
Anna & Juan, Thinking of you both during this difficult time. Juan, I am sure your dad was so proud of you. May the wonderful memories of a great man help both of you in the days ahead.
Remembering you both from Winburn days.
So sorry to learn of Mr. Stout's passing. My sincere condolences to the family. May you find solace in prayer. Psalms 61:1

Sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Stout I will keep you and the family in my prayers. It was always a pleasure seeing him at the AAU track meets.
I am really saddened to hear about Louis. As an attorney, I appared before him many times while he served on the Board of Adjustment. I first observed his successful career when he was the basketball coach at Tates Creek and then subsequently in all that he did. In all my interactions with Louis, I found him to be an exemplary person and community leader. I will surely miss him but he will never be forgotten. I extend my prayers and thoughts to each member of the family.
May you find comfort in God's word at James 4:8 which encourages us to "Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you."
Got to know Coach Stout while playing basketball at Transy in the early 70's. Saw him many times in Lexington throughout the past and he always remembered me and had time to joke and talk. I had great respect for him as a coach and referee.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
Coach Stout was a teacher of mine at Tates Creek High School in 1968. I remember him well and use to see him often around Lexington. I will miss this great man, and know he is part of Gods Staff....He will be missed by many people...
My history teacher at Tates Creek....a good guy. Dedicated.
