Theodore Tuttle, of Livingston Manor, NY, passed away on February 16, 2021. He was 90 years old.
Theodore was born in the Tuttle home located on Tuttle Hill Road in Livingston Manor, NY on April 8, 1930 to Martin Tuttle and Mary Katherine Agnes Dunn Tuttle. Theodore graduated from Livingston Manor Central School and was employed as a custodian. He was his own handyman who loved to fix things and kept his tools handy at all times. He enjoyed keeping a small garden where he grew fresh vegetables for himself and to share with friends and loved ones.
Theodore had many brothers, and although he never married, he was a loyal family member. He loved his mother dearly and took care of his parents until they passed away. He is predeceased by his parents, Martin and Mary Tuttle; his brothers, David, Clifford, Kenneth, Albert, Roy, Philip, James, George, and Paul, and by his friends who knew and loved him.
Theodore desired to remain independent and enjoy his home and the company of his friends. He lived on the family homestead his entire life until his death. To be able to stay in his beloved home until his passing was his strongest desire; with the help of his home health aids, he was able to stay in his own home as he wished. We thank Tanya and her daughter Gail for always being there for him and watching over him daily. Theodore loved to walk to Tanya’s for a nice hot evening meal and to enjoy her company.
