What a fine man Dave Tuttle was. I worked with him for many years at the 125th Fighter Wing. He never seemed to have a bad day. He was steady, grounded, hard working, and always pleasant. A patriot through and through. I’m so sorry for his family and community to lose such a good man so young. Best wishes to Deborah as she deals with grief of this terrible loss.
I remember being serenaded with a piano solo in chorus class by David and John. Of course, there would be some humor added to it. I always looked forward to their perforrmance. David was a great person. He was always personable and wore a great smile. He was also the first white guy I knew who had an afro...LoL! Rest in Peace David. Thank you for the music, humor and friendship.

I remember David from my childhood when my family would visit Uncle Lauren and Aunt Elizabeth. He was a fun and caring person. My admiration for him for his courage in fighting cancer in the past year is high. I pray for the Lord to comfort you as you say goodbye to this loving and caring man. Love, Cousin Cindy Tuttle (Uncle Harold's daughter)
David has always been a kind and caring person. His bravery while fighting his battle with cancer will always be remembered. He was a happy and spunky child and grew into a loving and caring man. I shall miss our frequent texts and chats. Love, Aunt Andy
