Lead, SD - Jay E. Stout, 66, died Saturday, August 10, 2013 in his home.
He was born March 7, 1947 in Sioux Falls, SD to Joseph and Dorothy Stout. Jay lived life to the fullest in everything he did. His Band, The Bleach Boys, toured with Dick Clark in the late 60's and recently was entered into the SD Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His bands included Arlie's All Stars, Cross The Line and The Slate Creek Band. Playing drums, riding snowmobiles, and loving the Lord were his passion. Jay had a heart of gold and always gave until it hurt. He ran Stout Plumbing and Heating for 40 years, and helped build many schools and businesses. He retired in 2004 and moved to the Black Hills.
Jay is survived by his son, Jesse (Felicia) Stout; two granddaughters, Mya Baca and T'naya Ramirez and girlfriend, Cindy Bernard. Both parents, and daughter, Jeannie Ramirez preceded him in Death.
Jay's favorite Bible verse was 1 Corinthians 13:13 from the King James version - "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity." We miss you Jay, and know that you are resting in peace.
A Memorial Service will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday, August 26, 2013 at Calvary Chapel - 1605 W 51st St. Sioux Falls, SD
