I have many fond memories of Mr. Grout as my scoutmaster and the dad of one of my closest childhood friends. I remember the nickname he called me when I was the Senior Patrol Leader of our Scout Troop, the "Little General". I have always appreciated the lessons I learned and the example Mr. Grout was in honesty and integrity. These lessons have served me well in life. Much of who I am today is because of the leadership of Mr. Grout.
My prayers are with Nancy, Randy, Tim, and Scott as they celebrate a life well lived.
