What a sad day for our community, but know the impact you leave behind is one that affected hundreds in the softball world alone. Can only imagine the many others you touched with that big heart of yours. Blondie sure is going to miss you.

My heart aches for the loss of Mr Tuttle. His nickname for me was freckles. He was the most caring and giving man I knew. He will be terribly missed but I will see him in heaven some day. I pray God and his angels help his family through this hard time. Deepest condolences.
