Raymond E. Strout



Bar Harbor

Raymond E. Strout, 79, died Nov. 6, 2020, at his home. He was born April 26, 1941, in Bar Harbor and was the son of Edwin A. and Pauline M. (Roberts) Strout.

Raymond worked at the Jackson Laboratory for 36 years as part of the building security and later as a custodian. In 1974, Raymond, while working nights at the lab, wanted to learn how to do picture framing, so he went to Ahlblad’s Frame Shop to learn. He continued framing after his retirement and never left and eventually took over ownership. Raymond enjoyed the history of Bar Harbor and now he is a part of that history.

Raymond is survived by two sons, Peter and Michael Strout, and a sister, Sandra F. Rodick, all of Bar Harbor. He was predeceased by his parents, a brother, Edwin, and the mother of his children, Judith Rogers Strout.

At Raymond’s request, there will be no service.
