Nancy, My heart goes out to you and your family during this difficult time, and you all are in my thoughts and prayers. I wish i had the words to take away your sadness and pain, but just remember that your dad is watching over you from a much better place now and one day you'll see him again. If you need ANYTHING, Im just a phone call away. I love you and am here for you always.

Bobby and Ruth Tuttle are two of my all time favorite patients. Bobby was outgoing, sincere, enjoyed what life presented him with, and had great humor. When I saw them on my office or procedure schedule, I knew it would be a great day. The picture selected for his obituary matches exactly my minds eye picture of him. Ruth, I am so sorry for your loss of Bobby, but you will reunite again. He was a special man to me. Dr. Richard Smith, Asheville Gastroenterology Associates

Not long after moving back to Hendersonville in 2004, I met Bob at the American Legion. He would sit in and sing with me. Bob was truly one of the finest people I've ever met, and was always a joy to be around. I'll miss you, Bob.

Bob was special, someone you were glad to know and see again. First met Bob in 1961 in Burlington, on the dock at the Operating Center of Duke Power. I was a new hire for Duke and I believe I heard Bob and saw him before I learned he was a Foreman with LW Routh Line Contractors. While most in the morning were quiet, Bob was greeting everyone, calling out names and hi you doing to all. Bob learned who I was sooner than I learned who Bob was. He was always friendly, warm, entertaining, and sincere in our conversations.. Bob's work was hard and heavy, before air tools and hydraulics, tough labor work, and Bob was good at it. You came to admire those that could do the work and looked to those like Bob who excelled with great respect. Through the years I always felt lifted up when I encountered Bob and his enthusiasm and positive outlook, cheerfulness to the core. It was good to have Bob in your life.

May all the family be blessed with God's peace and comfort. Always will remember Bob's singing in church and his strong Christian witness years ago when he was climbing poles for Duke. He will be missed.

Bob was one of a kind and I shared some good times with he and his family over the years indeed. My sincerest condolences to the Tuttle family along with my prayers going out to the family to ease the sorrow in the loss of the husband to Ruth, along with being a father, a grandfather, and friend to many who loved life and his family and friends to the utmost. He will be missed but not forgotten.

This past Sunday, April 11, at the end of our 11:00am worship at Edneyville United Methodist Church, Bob and Ruth were sitting in the pew right behind me right up front. Immediately following the closing hymn Bob went immediately to the front to talk with Sandra, our pianist, and then to Pastor Dana! Always greeting and complementing them for the music and the sermon! What a great man of God he was.
