Danny Scott Trout 1982 - 2023
Danny Scott Trout

BUSHTON — Danny Scott Trout, 40, formerly of Bushton, Kan., passed away on March 11, 2023 in Houston, Texas.  Danny was born to Larry and Laura Trout on September 6, 1982 in Great Bend, Kansas. He spent the majority of his childhood in Bushton, Kan., and graduated from Quivira Heights High School in 2000. As a teenager, Danny loved playing football, long-distance running, and learning physics and chemistry from his favorite teacher who deeply inspired him. He had a lead role in the school play every year and carried that passion with him throughout his adult life.  Danny had the kindest heart and embodied the definition of a true friend, often going out of his way to help and encourage others. He attended Kansas State University majoring in theater and physics. He also enjoyed learning to speak French and was a member of Beta Sigma Psi Fraternity.

Danny lived in California for several years as an adult and loved the ocean there as well as spending time in Hollywood. In 2014, he moved to Angleton, Texas to be closer to his parents. All of Danny’s life he shared a close bond with his Mother, whom he loved deeply. 

Danny also loved being an uncle and sharing his interests with his nephews and niece. He convinced each one of them at one point or another that he was Superman, he shared his best “dad jokes” with them, he taught them all of the secrets of his favorite video games, and he morphed into the best tickle monster that ever existed.

Danny is survived by his mother, Laura Trout of Angleton, Texas; his two sisters: Dawn Trout of Rocky Ford, Colo. and Crystal Trout of Lake Jackson, Texas; his grandmother, Karen Allison of Bushton, Kan.; his two nephews: Dylan (Madison) Mortimore of Great Bend, Kan. and Layne Trout of Rocky Ford, Colo.; his niece, Emma Trout of Lake Jackson, Texas; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.  Danny is joined in Heaven by his father, Larry Trout; his sister, Charlie Trout; and his gramps, Larry Temple.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 23, 2023 at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in Bushton, Kan., with Father Michael Brungardt officiating. Interment will follow in the Lyons Municipal Cemetery at Lyons, Kan. Visitation will be from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. on Wednesday at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church in Bushton with a Rosary Service at 7 p.m. The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, Memorial Contributions be directed to the Danny Trout Funeral Expense Fund with Charter Funerals, 2115 Washington Street, Great Bend, Kan., 67530 in charge.
