Longtime Kingsport attorney Dorman L. Stout Sr. died Tuesday at the age of 83. Stout was born in Whitley County, Kentucky, and after graduating from the University of Tennessee College of Law he began his legal career in Kingsport in 1959. After many years of practicing law with the firm of Wilson, Worley, Moore, Gamble and Stout, the Kingsport Bar Association presented him with a “Lifetime of Service to the Legal Profession” award. Stout was also civically engaged, volunteering for community organizations and coaching local youth sports teams. A private service for interment of ashes will be held July 12 with a memorial service to follow at 5 p.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Receiving of friends will immediately follow in the church fellowship hall. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in honor of Dorman to the Rebecca Stout Birch Scholarship Fund at St. Paul’s Day School, 160 E.
