  1. Shirley and I have many wonderful memories of good times shared with Clifford and Delores Tuttle. One time
    we visited them in their home near Ipswich, SD. and they were such wonderful hosts, and we always enjoyed
    the times they stopped by our place in Olathe, Ks. We also remember the times they would sing for us
    with wonderful harmony and were much blessed by their music. Peace to you Clifford, and we wish God’s
    healing touch for Delores and the family.
    Melvin and Shirley Harrelson

  2. What a special guy he was! I have fond memories of him and enjoyed his many jokes. I can picture him and my sister Debby giving each other a hard time and laughing, and enjoying heaven together.

  3. Dear Deloris and Family,
    It is with such a sad heart I received this message about our loss of Cliff. My mind immediately goes back to our acquaintance in Denver many years ago. How Cliff, Dave Gardner, and I would sit up for hours and discuss (argue) scripture and other vital subjects for young men looking for good fellowship. I recall with loving care of the hours we “young adults’ spent together in fellowship in Worship, our trips to the mountains, and even our just sitting around the apartments talking and enjoying good company. You, Clif, and the others have provided me with much pleasure and good memories over the years.
    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and the children in your time of loss. May the Lord give you the strength to cope with this very difficult time, and bring all to realize that God’s Kingdom is coming, and those who have loved and followed the Lord will find a place in that Kingdom on their arising at the return of Jesus.
    We pray for your hurt and for comfort and peace to come to you through Christ our Lord..
    Much love to you and the family,

  4. Dear Deloris and family, Death is hard, no matter when we lose a dear one. May you be near to God these next days. Experience His peace and love. also appreciate the love of your sons and families. Joanne and I have been planning on coming to see you around your birthday, and we still plan on doing that. May all go well these next hours, days, and weeks. As you miss Clifford– you will appreciate God all the more. In Christ, Clarice Austinson.

  5. My deepest sympathy to you and your family, Richard. Prayers for peace and hope to everyone! As we celebrate this Easter, may you take comfort in a risen Saviour who has won the battle for each of us. May you look forward to that glorious reunion when you and your dad will one day be together again

  6. Dear Richard, Rachel and family. Praying peace and comfort for all of you. God bless you.

  7. We are saddened to hear of Cliff’s death. Throughout the years of knowing you and Cliff we have many good memories of times spent at church and especially camps sitting around visiting with you both. He will be missed. Our prayers are offered for your comfort at this time.

  8. Dear Mrs. Tuttle and family, please accept my sincere sympathy. I worked as a vet tech for Stockmens Supply Veterinary Clinic and enjoyed visiting with Mr. Tuttle as our customer. I don’t remember the reason he shared his hamburger soup recipe with me but I make “Cliff Tuttle’s”hamburger soup often. It’s truly delicious and I will always think of him and smile remembering his kind gift. Sincerely, Kathy

  9. Condolences to the Tuttle family. Sorry that I could not attend the funeral. We have been friends for many years. Over those years we had many discussions on politics, religion and history. Cliff was always willing to help others. He will be missed. Delores, take care dear.

  10. We were not able to attend the funeral in person, but just now finished watching the video of the service.
    It was a wonderful service and tribute to Clifford and his service to others. I especially enjoyed the song
    “What a Day That will Be” – and it will be a wonderful day when we meet Our Savior (and Cliff again).
    Melvin Harrelson (Olathe, Ks.)
