Obituary – Noble Stout



Noble Hooper Stout, Jr., 69, passed away Friday, September 7, 2018 at Cookeville Regional Medical Center. 

Noble was born in Jackson County on July 12, 1949 to the late Noble Hooper Stout and Mable Carter Stout. 

He is survived by his wife of 18 years, Patsy (Pat) Hinrichsen Stout of Cookeville; mother Mable Carter Stout Maddux of Baxter; son Bo (Jennifer) Stout of Wilder, TN; son Brandon (Alie) Stout of Verona, KY; step-son Michael (Erin) Carpinito of Kent, WA; step-daughter Theresa (Alex) Kira of San Francisco, CA; grandchildren Tylan Stout, Tatyn Stout and Banks Stout; step-grandchildren Brianna Carpinito and Michael Carpinito, Jr.

Noble was with the City of Cookeville Water/Sewer Department for nearly 23 years and retired in 2004. Over the past 50 years, he was well known for following his passion of raising, training and showing Tennessee Walking Horses. He also thoroughly enjoyed his time spent with fishing buddies on Cordell Hull Lake. 

Since his retirement, he and Patsy traveled throughout the United States and abroad, with and without their horses.

With his infectious smile and heart of gold, Noble was one of a kind who didn't hesitate "stirring the pot."

There will be a Celebration of Life held at Presley Funeral Home on Monday, September 24, 2018 from 3:00 to 6:00 PM.
