Washington — David Jay Strout, 64, passed away at Maine Medical Center on the morning of March 24, 2021, after a brief illness. David was born Jan. 9, 1957 in Bangor to Gilbert Strout and Bertha Joan Strout.

David attended Alfred Elementary and Warren Elementary schools, Union Junior High School and graduated from Medomak Valley High School in the class of 1975. After high school, he attended Eastern Maine Vocational Technical Institute and graduated with a drafting degree.

He worked for McCormick & Sons Construction as a foreman for 17 years, A.E. Sampson for nine years and he worked for a local couple in Round Pond as a custom woodworker, boatbuilder and caretaker for 18 years. He has left behind many beautiful memories in all of his work through the years.

David could build or fix anything and was a very hard worker. He loved fishing, gardening and had an incredible asparagus patch in Warren. He was always tinkering and had many, many projects in his workshop. His recent love for wood-turning proved his artistic ability in creating beautiful wooden bowls and other items.

He enjoyed spending time at camp on Sheepscot Pond in Palermo. He was known as a “whistler,” an artist and his sayings and silly tidbits (“it’s time for a biscuit,” which meant time for a break); along with many more unique sayings.

He built a very special boat for his grandchildren called The Seven Grands.

David was predeceased by his father Gilbert, mother Bertha (known as Joan) brother Jon and nephews Jacob and Sam.

Left to cherish his memory is his loving companion of 27 years, Pamela Carey of Washington; sons Mike and wife Megan of Hope, Barrett Strout of Augusta and Logan Sampson of Walpole; step-daughter Lindsey Carr and husband Caseyof Washington; brothers Fred Strout and partner Susie Blackler of Warren, Mark Strout and wife Catherine of Lakeworth, Fla.; daughters Megan and Elizabeth, Paul Strout and wife Cathy of Warren, and son Warren of Malta; grandchildren Zachary, Melanie, Bode and Cora Strout, Hannah, Hailey and Henry Carr.

A walk-through visitation will be held Saturday, April 10, from 2 to 4 p.m. at Hall’s of Waldoboro, 949 Main St., in Waldoboro. Social distancing and mask requirements will be observed.

Because of David’s love of the outdoors, donations may be made in David’s name to the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine, 205 Church Hill Road, Augusta ME 04330 which will go to purchase lifetime licenses for Maine children.
