By Robert Stone

Rev. Robert J. Stout, author of the Another Angle columns which appeared on Columbia Magazine a few year back, died on Sunday, January 25, 2015. He was pastor of United Methodist churches in both Liberty and Centertown, Kentucky, and had previously been pastor at Mt. Holly UMC in Fairdale (Louisville), at Horse Cave UMC, Kentucky, and in Maryland.

Another Angle first appeared January 16, 2005 and concluded on February 4, 2007. Sandra T. Wilson, editor of The Sunday News-Herald (Hart County) invited him to write a column. Because of diabetic complications, Rob had eight hospital stays and thirteen surgeries. His writing appeared under the byline The Rev. Joey N. Welsh, whose letters rearranged spell John Wesley, because Methodists suggest that ministers not maintain close ties with their previous churches. Rob had been at Horse Cave United Methodist Church for several years and was at Mt. Holly, Fairdale, Kentucky, when he started writing.


I first saw a play in Horse Cave in the fall of 1990 and became acquainted with Rob when he came to town. I was a guest in his home (the parsonage) several times. Two young men who were actors at the theater later became officers in the U.S. Army and I had the pleasure of traveling with him to Fort Benning, Georgia, for Jeremy's swearing in and to Terre Haute, Indiana, for Alex's swearing in. In his last column Rob wondered about their being sent overseas. They did serve abroad and both safely returned home.

Rob was in a wheelchair for months and we once went to the Speed Museum in Louisville. We visited all of it. I was exhausted by the time he finished showing me everything.

A graduate of the University of Louisville, Rob held a Master of Divinity from Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. He was a patron of the arts in Louisville and Horse Cave, having served on several boards including Kentucky Repertory Theater at Horse Cave. He was also involved in civic affairs and was a member of the Rotary Club.

Interment of ashes at Main Street Municipal Cemetery, 402 East Main Street, Horse Cave, Kentucky was at 11amCT, on Saturday, January 31, 2015. Memorial Service at Fourth Avenue United Methodist Church, 4th& St. Catherine Streets, Louisville, KY was at 4pmET, also on Saturday, January 31.
