ANTHONY CARDER STOUT  

Born May 20, 1939, died on May 30, 2017. He was predeceased by his parents, Harry Howard Stout Jr and Maxine Carder Stout; and brother, Harry Howard Stout III.
Anthony attended St. Paul's School in Concord, NH for high school then Williams College where he received a degree in Philosophy. He continued his education, earning his Juris Doctorate from Harvard Law and a Masters in Economics from London School of Economics.
After his studies, Anthony spent three years in New York at the prestigious law firm of Milbank Tweed. Subsequently, he moved to Washington, DC where he founded the National Journal magazine, which is still considered one of the foremost publications in politics today. He sold National Journal in 1986 and his entrepreneurial spirit led him to start and manage his own investment fund.
In the late 1980's Anthony also started The Battle of Normandy Foundation as a tribute to his father, who fought in World War II and landed in Normandy during the invasion. The Foundation successfully raised significant funds to help build the Battle of Normandy Museum in Caen, France. For his work with the Foundation he was awarded the Legion d'Honneur Chevalier by Francois Mitterand, then the President of France.
But Anthony, "Tony" to those who knew him well, was not all about education and business. He was an avid skier. He loved upland game hunting. He loved to canoe. He coached his sons' ice hockey teams. He was a pilot, a fisherman and a lover of the ocean who taught all his children how to body surf - and do it well. He was charming, elegant, sophisticated, a successful businessman, a charmer, a storyteller, a polymath, an American renaissance man. He was a lover of life, of people, of places, of experiences, of being itself. He was dynamic, magnetic, and could make the mundane seem intriguing.
He was also the very proud father of five children, Craig, Carder, Antonia, Julie and Marcus. His children-in-law include Jennie Jones Stout, Shawn Greenbaum and Stacy Riley Stout, who he loved almost as dearly as his children. He was equally proud of his brood of grandchildren, Carder, Cullen, Connor, Adelaide, Maxine, Clive and Sebastian.
A service in celebration of his life will be held sometime this summer or fall, although an exact date has not yet been determined.
