Vergil Stout Obituary, Death – Vergil Paul Stout, age 81, of Gray, Tennessee, passed away at the home of natural causes on December 9, 2022. He was known as Mr. Vergil Paul Stout. Both of his parents, Anderson and Beulah Stout, called Elizabethton home throughout their lives. Before Vergil was born, both of them had already passed away.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Mary Ann of Gray, as well as two sons, both of whom have married and begun their own families since adulthood. He was married for a total of 56 years. Darrin (Ginger), a resident of Cookeville, and his wife are the parents of their children, Caleb and Ian. Coley, Parker, Micah, and Knox are the children of Kevin and Dana, who currently reside in Memphis with their families.

In addition, he is survived by a sister named Jean who resides in Elizabethton, a sister named Norma who resides in Atlanta and is married to a man named Gary Buckles, as well as a number of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, and he was born in Elizabethton. It has been a blessing for Darrin and Kevin over the course of their lives to have their good friends Ted and Carol Douglas, who are also their godparents, there to love and guide them. Vergil was educated through his senior year of high school in Unaka. After that, he joined the military and served in the United States Army throughout the middle of the 1960s.

Following that, he found employment as a maintenance worker first at Holston Defense and subsequently at BAE. At the beginning of the 2000s, he made it known that he was considering “doing some woodworking” as a potential hobby for himself. He began a small business, and he would pick up an image on his computer, and then he would create wonderful work, which has been a blessing to our sons as well as our friends and the church. He created these amazing works of art using his computer.
As the manager of a Little League baseball team, he fostered the development of friendships that will endure for the rest of his life.

Blessings have come through the countless hugs and stories that have been told to and received from one another over the course of the years. A Celebration of Life will be held at Buffalo Ridge Baptist Church on the evening of Monday, December 12, 2022, at 6:00 PM. The Reverend Dr. John Herdman will preside over the event and serve as the officiant.
