Floyd E. ‘Eddie’ Trout, 83, Overbrook: Sept. 2, 1938 – June 8, 2022

OVERBROOK, Kan. – Floyd E. “Eddie” Trout, 83, Overbrook, Kan., passed away June 8, 2022, at Midland Care Hospice House. He was born Sept. 2, 1938, on the family farm in Douglas County by Twin Mound, the son of Floyd E. Trout Sr. and Mary Alice (Shurmur) Trout.

Eddie was a lifelong resident of rural Overbrook, Kan., attending Twin Mound Elementary School and Overbrook High School.

Eddie proudly served his country in the United States Army for two years, and then eight years in the Army Reserves. After his military service, Eddie began working at Sears Department Store, in Topeka, Kan., eventually becoming a mechanic in the auto service department from 1958 to his retirement in 2003.

On Oct. 30, 1962, Eddie was united in marriage to Kay Kistner, at Topeka. They celebrated 59 years of loving marriage together.

Eddie was a family man. He loved his wife and kids, and of course he loved to spoil his grandkids. Some of his favorite times were going fishing with the grandsons and his son to the pond, creek or lake on Sundays. He enjoyed raising cattle on his farm and gardening and keeping his yard neat and full of beautiful flowers, so he had flowers for his wife, Kay. Eddie loved to spend time with family, but his great granddaughters always could win his heart. They were always happy to see their “Papa.”

Eddie was preceded in death by his parents, Floyd E. Trout Sr. and Mary Alice Trout; a sister, Mary; and a grandson, Jess Trout.

He is survived by his wife, Kay Trout, Overbrook; four children, James Trout and his wife, Shelly, Overbrook, Mike Trout, and his wife, Rochelle, Neb., Kevin Trout and his wife, Rhonda, Lebanon, Mo., and Virginia Trout-Waller and her husband, James, Overbrook; four siblings, Bill Trout, Osage City, Kan., Larry Trout and his wife, Jean, Baldwin City, Kan., John Trout and his wife, Sharon, Overbrook, and Dorothy Wulfkuhle and her husband, Duane, Carbondale, Kan.; and 12 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
