George Augustus Stout, III, 65, of Key West, Fla., died while sleeping July 9, 2014.

He was born to George A. Stout, Jr., and Pia (Dalporto) Stout in Springhouse, Pa., on Aug. 13, 1948. He grew up in Chestnut Hill and Doylestown, Pa. George graduated with his BSME from Villanova University.

He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Phyllis (Wolf) Stout. They were married in the Old Stone Church in Key West. Also, survived by their daughter, Christina Stout, her husband Nate Bacon, and their children, his dear grandchildren, Suzannah Skye and Wendell Arcturus Cove Bacon, who reside in Twisp, Wash. They were the true loves of his life.

George was blessed to have 10 extraordinary brothers and sisters that he loved beyond words. He is survived by Pia (Alan) Fair, Catherine Stout, John (FuMei) Stout, Joseph (Mary) Stout, Ann Dalporto, Mary (Tom) Caputi, Stephen (Debbie) Stout, Vincent (Liz) Stout, sisters-in-law Theresa Stout and Marita Stout. He is predeceased by David and Mark Stout.

George is survived by his mother-in-law, Lois Wolf and sister-in-law, Cathy Wolf. He is predeceased by his father-in-law, Philip Wolf and brother-in-law, David Wolf. Through the 34 years he was truly a son and brother to them and loved immensely.

George is also survived by many dear nieces and nephews. They are Jason Donnelly, Cori Maffett, Alexander Garfield, John Jr and Ann Stout, Elizabeth Corbin, Dana Zampanti, Ben Beirs, Risica and Hannah Caputi, Stephen Jr and Stacy Stout, Bess Greway, Vincent Jr, Chris and Patrick Stout, Amanda, Rachel, and Sarah Stout, Jennifer Gill, Monica, Matt and Maggie Stout and their families.

Predeceased by many friends, George is also survived by many. Family friend, Cheryl Radcliff, has been there sharing all. His early morning Key West group and his Hobucken, N.C., back porch sunset friends gave him joy and good conversation.

George moved to the Keys in 1974 and started his business, Commercial Refrigeration Services, Inc. soon after. He served his customers for the next 38 years from Key West to South Africa with his expertise and respect for the commercial fishing and seafood industry. Many of his customers became long time friends.

George had a love for life and all in it. The freedom of the expansive waters, limitless quest for knowledge, meticulous workmanship, cooking and caring for his family and friends were his passions. He will be missed by many and live on through his family, his designs and creations.

Visitation will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 17, 2014, and funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, July 18, 2014. Both services will take place at the Dean-Lopez Funeral Home, 418 Simonton St., Key West, Fla.
