Boyd Mac Stout

STALEY — Boyd Mac Stout, 73, of Staley went home to be with his Lord & Savior on Friday, June 28, 2024, at Ramseur Health & Rehabilitation in Ramseur.

Funeral Services are 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 2, 2024, at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, Staley, with Military Honors by the Randolph County Honor Guard and the Rev. Jimmy Austin officiating.

Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

Boyd was a native of Chatham County and grew up the fifth of seven children. In 1968, Boyd entered the United States Army where he proudly and courageously served two tours in the Vietnam War, during which he was awarded two Bronze Stars. He returned home safely, as many of his comrades did not. His life was forever changed after his time of service.

In 1978, he married the love of his life, Sheila Kimrey Stout. Boyd and Sheila both found solace in spending time outdoors hunting deer. Boyd is famously known for his passion for rabbit hunting and raising "the best" rabbit dogs. Boyd spent immeasurable hours sharing his knowledge and love of hunting with his "village kids" and his friends. 

A good laugh was always a part of the experience when Boyd was hunting. Faith and family were a huge part of Boyd's life and he always had a tale to share and a word of advice. He was active in his church, Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, and Boyd was a father figure and mentor to many young men and women that passed through his life. He cared deeply when a young person wanted to learn or experience hunting. Boyd made it his goal to teach what he knew to the younger generation. He was loved and respected by those that knew his friendship. 

Boyd's new heavenly assignment leaves many hurting hearts behind, but the hope of salvation gives light in the dark times. 

Boyd was preceded in death by his parents, Elbert Howard Stout and Eula Mae Patterson Stout; and brothers, Gary Wayne Stout, Howard Kenneth Stout, Jimmy Carlton Stout and Ronnie Dean Stout.

Survivors include wife, Sheila Kimrey Stout of the home; daughter, Kelly Jester McMurray and husband David of Ramseur; son, Nick Maness and wife Erica of Liberty; sister, Peggy Stout of Hickory; brother, Roy E. Stout and wife Faye Dean of Siler City; grandsons, Rosston and Gatlin Maness; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

The family would like to give a special thank you to the staff of Ramseur Rehab and Healthcare as well as to niece, Patti S. Thomas, for their amazing love and care to Boyd.

Visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. on Monday, July 1, at Loflin Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Ramseur, and other times at the residence.
