          Harry Allerdice Stout,  89, the third-generation owner of Stout's Shoes, passed away peacefully on February 21, 2013.  He was born in Indianapolis on October 14, 1923 to  General Oliver H. Stout and  Helen Braden Stout.  He had one sister,  Nancy Stout Kuhn.  Harry attended Park School for Boys through 8th grade and graduated high school from Culver Military Academy.  The following year he spent at the Millard Military Academy and then enrolled at Princeton University in 1941.  When the United States entered WWII, he left college and enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corp where he was trained as a pilot.  He was a Captain of a B-24 plane and flew missions in many parts of the world including "flying the hump".  He was honorably discharged with the rank of Major in 1946 and returned to Princeton University, graduating in 1948.
          After Princeton, Harry returned to Indianapolis to carry on the family business, where he worked with great dedication before retiring in 1997.  His work ethic was an inspiration to his family and employees.  In addition to his lasting contributions to the business, his renovations to buildings on Massachusetts Avenue sparked the movement that ultimately produced today's arts and design district on Mass Ave.  He was also a committed volunteer and supporter of the Indianapolis Humane Society.
          For 54 years Harry was married to and adored  Elizabeth "Perkey" Stout.  Together they were the foundation of a living family, enjoyed wonderful friends and countless dogs, and offered a welcoming heart to anyone they met.
          After his retirement, Harry and Perkey spent their summers on Old Mission Peninsula in Northern Michigan where Harry loved to golf, swim, take long walks.  They enjoyed many years there hosting family and friends.  In 2008, they embarked on a new chapter of life and moved to Marquette in Indianapolis.  Although Perkey passed away in 2009, Harry continued to live life with great enthusiasm.  He played in weekly bridge fames, joined singing groups, and found his passion for dancing at the age of 85.  Harry loved the dance floor, songs by Frank Sinatra, and ice cream.
          Harry was a devoted husband, father, uncle, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend.  His legacy will live on through his six children,  Hilary Stout Salatich (Ronald),  Nancy Stout Hutchins (David),  Cathy Stout Bayse (David),  Wendy Stout O'Brien,  Julie Ellis Stout,  and  Harry Braden Stout (Stephanie),  his nephews  Walter William Kuhn  and  Thomas Stout Kuhn,  his niece  Helen Kuhn Lee,  and his 18 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren.

          The funeral of Mrs. May Stout was well attended, proving the love and esteem in which she was held by the neighbors amongst whom she had only resided three months, all of which time she was confined to her bed with that dread disease-consumption.  She was a patient sufferer.  When told by a friend that there was no hope for her, she said:  "It is all right; I am ready."  She requested that her three little children might be placed in the Gordon Home.  Her remains were laid in St. George Cemetery beside those of her mother.
