Our beloved brother, father, uncle and nephew David Ray Tuttle began his journey on January 5, 2019. He was born on October 25, 1970 in Pierre, SD to Lillian Tuttle.
Our mother then moved us to Poplar, MT where David lived all his life. He attended Poplar schools excelling in basketball throughout middle and high school before graduating in 1989. Later he met Tanya GreyBear and from this union they had twin girls Taree’an and Daree’an Tuttle.
David reunited with Jewel Lynn Greybear and married Dec. 17 2013. Together they lived in Fort Totten, ND and were expecting a new found joy only to end in heartache for the Creator called him back home Jan 29 2014. Not long after his wife Jewel followed June 2015. Now widowed, he moved back to Poplar, MT where he lived until his death.
Back in the day David was an avid firefighter from late 1980’s to 2000’s working his way up to crew boss. David enjoyed playing cards, dice, visiting family and friends or just cruising around.
