His family moved to San Francisco, CA and later settled in Santa Rosa, CA. He served in the U. S. Air Force as a Military Policeman. On September 4, 1966, he married Phyllis Campbell in Deer Park, CA. They soon started their family of six children. Jim was a self-employed businessman whose family was his life. Jim was retired and spent the last few years traveling with his wife, Phyllis and spending time with their children and grandchildren. Jim was a bighearted, friendly, kind and thoughtful man who inspired many with whom he associated. His experiences, achievements and adventures were colorful and he lived his life thinking of others. Jim was passionate about the protection and safety of others. Quietly or anonymously he gave his time, shared his talents, advised and encouraged others. He saw good in people that others may not have seen and was generous with his time and means, never expecting anything in return. Jim touched the lives of many people with his humorous nature. Jim will be remembered for his joke telling, wisdom, kind ways, world class story telling, and extensive collection of books on every subject. He was an avid reader and devoured books like they were candy. He was knowledgeable about so many subjects and had a memory that amazed those who knew him. He loved spending time with his wife and reading to his grandkids. There was no other who loved his family more than Jim. We will miss him dearly, and think of him fondly all the days of our lives. He is lovingly survived by his wife Phyllis (Campbell) Stout of Montana; his six children and eight grandchildren, Melvin L. Stout of Napa, California, Bianca P. (Stout) Mortimer and her children; Rebecca Mortimer, Bianca Joy Mortimer, Breanna Mortimer, Melissa Mortimer, Lance Mortimer and Luke Mortimer, of Ft.
