Dad, Father, Pop, Daddy, Male Parental Unit. No matter what you call them, those of us blessed with loving and supportive fathers (or father figures) in our lives have much to be grateful for.
To celebrate these great men, Stout is highlighting a few who agreed to share their lessons from fatherhood, which had spilled over into the rest of their personal and professional lives. To them, and to all the amazing dads out there, here’s a big #StoutShout to those who have made family business their most important business.
“Even from my earliest memories as a child, I remember my dad going out of his way to help others–particularly children and the very poor. He didn’t want attention. Most of it was under the radar, he didn’t want any attention. It was just an innate sense he had.” Sarah Smith, co-founder of Foster Angels of Central Texas.

“Sometimes the smallest gesture such as getting a child new clothing or enrolling them in an extracurricular activity can make the greatest impact.”

“My Father was always the one person who pushed me to be better than I was.” says Mitchell, “Throughout my life I always had bold ideas, and while he always tried to keep me tied down to earth, he was the only one who never told me I couldn’t do it. He truly is an amazing father, to me and my two sisters.”
“No matter what I’ve done in life, my father has been there to support me 150% even putting his own life on hold to support my dreams.”
