Stephen (Steve) TROUT Obituary

Stephen W. "Steve" Trout, 71, of Enon passed away unexpectedly on December 22, 2017. Steve was born November 30, 1946 to Ltc. Max D. Trout (deceased) and Doris "Dot" Trout (Roe) in Augsburg, Germany. Graduated from Paris-American High School, Paris, France; attended the University of Maryland, Munich, Germany campus and Wright State University. Steve married the love of his life, Katherine A. Trout, on June 8, 1968 in Cleveland, Ohio. Served in the U.S. Army, Steve was stationed in Ulm, Germany with the Pershing Missile Unit. Upon his return stateside, Steve began his professional career in finance at Beneficial Finance, retiring in 2015 from Castrucci Auto Mall as Finance Director. Steve's heart truly was in Enon - for 21 1/2 years Steve served the Village of Enon; first, as Clerk Treasurer, then as a member of Council and Council President for several years. Steve was an avid reader, visiting one of his most favorite places in the village, The Enon Library. He always looked forward to being with the 9 a.m. Sunday morning stirrers at the annual Enon Apple Butter Festival. Saturday mornings were strictly reserved for, as Steve called it, the breakfast "board meetings" with close life-long friends. The OSU Buckeyes football team was his absolute favorite. Golf was his passion, and was so elated when he scored that 'hole in one' at Greene Country Club. Steve was most proud of his family - so loved his wife, son, daughter, and especially his 3 grandchildren, who had no bigger fan than their 'Grandpa' cheering them on at a variety of their sporting events. Steve is survived by his beloved wife of 49 1/2 years, Kathy; his daughter, Stefanie and James Patsiavos of Hilliard, Ohio; his son, Christopher and Megan Trout of Oakwood, Ohio. His mother, Dot Trout of South Pasadena, Florida. Brothers: Thomas (Katherine S.) Trout of Springfield, Ohio; R. Andrew (Mary) Trout of Pueblo, Colorado. Three grandchildren: Maxwell Patsiavos, Evan Trout and Stella Patsiavos. Cousins, Terry Sweet, Peggy Gamber and their families along with numerous nieces, nephews and many close friends. Steve was a member of the Enon VFW, Masonic Lodge 421 in Yellow Springs, Scottish Rite, Antioch Shrine, Moose and Elks.
