Bruce Strout Obituary

Bruce Allen Strout, Sr., 69, of Hinesville, Georgia, passed  away peacefully on January 4th, 2023, after suffering months of repeated illness. He was born to Charlotte Strout of Portland, Maine on October 17, 1953. Bruce was a tenacious and curious young man; always passionate about auto racing & hunting. He was so immersed in how things worked, he dedicated his life to the pursuit of auto mechanics. Most importantly Bruce's family meant everything to him, and he loved all of them very dearly. 

Bruce married the love of his life, Mary Ann Sturgeon-Strout, on November 4, 1972. Shortly after they married, he joined the military in the branch of the US Army. Bruce and Mary began their family together in the early 1970's. After the birth of their youngest child, Bruce decided to end his military career but continue working in auto mechanics-doing what he loved with race cars at home in Hinesville.

Bruce could be found over the years at NASCAR races in Daytona and Talledega. He loved his trips to Maine to see his family, lighthouses, and "looking for Moose. He didn't miss graduations, or many birthday parties. 

He loved being in his garage a/k/a "his home away from home" working on the race cars, cars in general, or skinning deer.

Bruce worked for over 10+ years at Thrift Auto Repair in Hinesville. Then throughout his illness, in better times of health, he. could be found tinkering in other repair shops and garages throughout the Hinesville area.
