Stanley Stout, An Industry Legend, Passes Away

Stanley Stout, one of the most famous and popular auctioneers in the livestock industry, passed away unexpectedly this week

Stanley Stout, one of the most famous and popular auctioneers in the livestock industry, passed away unexpectedly this week as the result of a heart attack.

One of my favorite movies is "It's a Wonderful Life," as it demonstrates how clearly one's life has an impact on so many others. Stanley was one of those people who made a lasting impact, not only on our industry but on a lot of people involved in it. No greater testimony to this is the flood of e-mails I received, as people wanted to make everyone aware.

I'm sure everyone who had the opportunity to get to know Colonel Stout has a favorite story or anecdote to tell. The one thing that can be said for certain is that he made a lasting impact on a lot of individuals and he will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. -- Troy Marshall
