Leroy E. Stout, Jr.

September 3, 1967 — October 29, 2023

Star City


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a beloved son, brother, father and grandfather, Leroy E. Stout Jr. He departed this world unexpectedly on Oct. 29th, 2023, in Lafayette, Indiana. He leaves behind a legacy of hard work and an endearing love for his family.

Born on September 3rd, 1967, he was the son of Leroy Stout, Sr., and Cindy Pinks. His unwavering commitment to hard work was exemplified through his career as a skilled mechanic, and he was most recently employed as a maintenance mechanic at Arconic in Lafayette. He had an innate ability to fix things and took a lot of pride in his work, and especially his family. He enjoyed riding motorcycles, spending time with his family and was an avid history lover. Leroy was a member of the Church of the Heartland.

Leroy is survived by his children, Ashley Stout of Star City, Indiana, Alisha (Scott) Cline of Jacksonville, Florida, Briget (Dillion) Hoffman of Royal Center, Indiana, and Adam (Shelby) Stout of Winamac, his father Leroy (Margaret) Stout Sr. of Star City,  mother Cindy Kraus of LaPorte, brothers Chris (Connie) Stout of Star City, Scott (Jen) Stout of Union Mills, Jeffery (Alicia) Stout of Arizona, and Edward Watts Jr, of Florida, sisters Orlean Miller (John) of Valparaiso, and Denise (John) Downing of Winamac. He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Dominic Stout, Adilynn Cline, Reece Clemons, Jackson Stout, Ellie Cline, and Graham Stout.

He was preceded in death by his former spouse, Wanda Stout, who passed away October 29th, 2016. They were married on February 28th, 1987.

He leaves behind a void that can never be filled but will be remembered for his sense of humor and deep love for his family. May he rest in peace, reunited with those who have gone before him.
