Glen Odell Stout, 91, passed away on Sept. 24, 2020 at his home. He was born Oct. 19, 1928 in Taloga, Okla., as the third son of five boys born to Forest and Irene Stout.
Glen served in the U.S. Navy from 1946-1949 and the Navy Reserves in 1950 at the start of the Korean War. In the Navy, he went to electronics school where he became a radar engineer and senior project engineer. He attended USC and was recognized with a B.S.E.E. at Hughes Aircraft. He worked for Hughes from 1952-1992 and for Ratheon until 2001.
Glen's love for a challenge led him to many adventures. He got his private pilot's license, built a gyrocopter, was a marathon runner, climbed Mt. McKinley, and loved to swim, camp and go on RV trips. He was a great patriot to his country, raced jalopies and owned a Model A. He was a skydiver and an ancestry enthusiast, and once flew supersonic on a test flight in an F-15. He was a gentleman to all he met.
Preceding him in death were members of his immediate family: his wife of 50 years, Nina; oldest daughter Debby and granddaughter Emily.
Surviving him are his wife of 18 years, Norma; daughters Tish (Bob) and Cheri (Bill); six grandchildren, Josh, Sean, Nate, Sierra, Katy and Morgan and 11 great grandchildren; brother John, son-in-law Jon Brones, Norma's daughters Laura and Pat, and numerous nieces and nephews.
