Jon was born Dec. 19, 1953 to Gilbert and Bertha Strout at Eastern Maine Medical Center. He graduated from Medomak Valley High School and also attended University of Maine at Presque Isle. During his school years, basketball was definitely one of his highlights.
After having his children Samuel and Jacob Strout, they were truly the enjoyments of his life. Jon also enjoyed fishing with his family and friends. He also loved to tell stories. His last employment was with Great Eastern Mussel until it closed.
Jon had many different nicknames, but his favorite was "Jiggin Jon." That nickname was used by two very special toddlers, Zac and Kyle Curtis. They were like grandchildren to "Jiggin," who adored Jon.
Jon is survived by his son Samuel and wife Jessica Strout. Also by a special friend and the mother of his children, Paulette Strout.
He was the oldest of five boys and is survived by his four brothers, and significant others, Fred Strout and Susie, Dave Strout and Pam, Mark and Kathy Strout and Paul Strout. Jon's best friend was Gary Miller. He was always there for Jon.
