Glyn Stout Memorial, December 5, 2015

glyn_Going_to_light

“Thanks for the memories of thousands of sun soaked hours in your garden of delights.

Thanks for bringing together lifelong friends for us.” Sharon and Rob 

On December 5, 2015 people from all across the United States and many other countries gathered for a memorial held for Glyn Stout, the long-time owner of Lupin Lodge, husband of Lupin CEO, Lori Stout and loving father of his twin daughters, Simone and Samara. It was a momentous event evoking a huge outpouring of love and respect for Glyn and his legacy. The number of cards, letters and emails that were received was far beyond expectation.

“So grateful for the gift Glyn bestowed on me, the invaluable gift of self-acceptance. You will forever be in my heart.” Christa

The event included the memorial celebration held in the restaurant and a tree planting ceremony held on the fountain lawn and was masterfully organized and hosted by Cindy and Cliff, who gave a very moving speech.  Charlie played classical guitar throughout and Lori played the hauntingly beautiful Kulingtang. Simone and Samara honored their dad with soulful remembrances interspersed with humor and unforgettable imagery.  They were articulate, posed and beautiful; their presence was yet another great testimony to their father’s values and love.

“Glyn has been influential presence in my life over the last 16 years. I’ll always remember his gentle touch, positive outlook, humble ways, and beautiful smile filled with understanding of what really matters in life. His memory will remain in my soul forever, for he was a magnificent human being who I adored, appreciated and loved.”  Lanner

Several speakers recalled the contribution Glyn has made to the community and the value his life added to so many including Charlie, John B. and Sal C.  Cindy sang an touching acapella rendition of Leonard Cohen’s song, “Hallelujah.”  Margaret gifted us with “Amazing Grace” and Jack G. played the piano and sang Woody Guthrie’s “So Long, It’s Been Good to Know You” as the audience joined in on the chorus and shed some more tears. Walt honored Glyn by playing “Danny Boy” on the violin, and Veny struck the chimes seventy seven times, one for each year of Glyn’s life.

“When I think of Lupin, I think of Glyn and his warm loving family. I only hold good memories when it comes to remembering Glyn– a leader, a father, husband, and a role model. He help me to feel welcome here at Lupin.”  Cate

Certainly a highlight of the event was the professional quality movie produced by Julie and Ralph of Glyn’s life from birth to the present, rich with photos of Glyn and a superb background score.

To honor Glyn’s service as an officer in the U.S. Navy, navy personnel conducted a Flag ceremony including a performance of “Taps” and presentation of the U.S.  flag to Lori Kay. Rochelle read some poetry she wrote to honor Glyn, but the most moving reading was Glyn’s own words from “The common Sense Guide to Living at Lupin” from the last chapter (“One Day at a time”).

A tree was planted so Lupin would always have a living reminder of Glyn — a fitting memorial for one who loved this land as much as he did.  As each of us added a little soil into the hole for the tree, we could almost feel Glyn’s presence there with us.

“Thank you for being a champion for women. Thanks for hanging in there when times got tough for Lupin”

The group then shared a delicious meal together which featured some of Glyn’s favorite foods. While enjoying eating together, people gathered in small groups to share memories and stories of their times with Glyn.  Many wrote out their personal tribute to Glyn on cards that were hung on the Christmas tree.

All in all, the event was a fitting and poignant tribute to a unique man who was such an inspiration and role model for so many.  He will long be remembered!

“It is amazing what he has created over his lifetime – a beautiful setting called Lupin.” Ducojan
