Jimmie Lee Stroud, 64, Moran, passed away on Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013, at his home.
He was born Dec. 30, 1948, in Gross, the son of Joe and Lovena (Nicholles) Stroud. He graduated from Girard High School and attended one year of welding school in Fort Scott.
In Jim’s words, “as growing up, I loved to play fast pitch softball; there wasn’t anyone anywhere that could play short-stop like me. I was always an all-star ’til I threw my shoulder out in 1967.”
Jim married Marilyn Baker on Feb. 28, 1968, in Walnut. This union was blessed with two children, Rob and Traci Stroud.
In 1977, he was offered a position in Iowa, at Sohigro as a manager to get the plant up and running. This expanded to a position in Iola at Sohigro in 1980. Through the years, the name changed to Terra, which is now owned by AgChoice, owned by MFA. Jim and Marilyn made their home on a farm in Moran, raising their family.
He loved to hunt and fish. Jim’s life was his children and grandchildren, along with his two girls, Lilly Mae and Littlebit. He always had his family with him showing them the passion and respect of the outdoors. Jim enjoyed gardening and mowing the yard.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Lovena Stroud; daughter Traci Stroud Krouse; and brother, Bill Stroud.
Jim is survived by his wife, Marilyn; son, Rob and wife Angela, Moran; mother-in-law, Cleta Jean Baker, Hepler; son-in-law, Tim Krouse, Gardner; three grandchildren, Alisa Stroud and Kaleb Stroud, Moran; and Steffen Krouse, Gardner; great-granddaughter, Taygen Stroud; sister, Shirley Weber and husband Jim, Joplin, Mo., two brothers, John Stroud and wife Dianne, Hepler, and Danny Stroud and wife Loretta, Arkansas.
