Bill Tuttle celebrated his 90th birthday recently in Tobaccoville at the Alice Watts Tuttle Community Center with about 125 friends and family members attending.
He greeted friends standing beside a table adorned with pictures from throughout his life which the guests enjoyed. His niece, Brenda Gale Tuttle, welcomed everyone and shared some special thoughts about her Uncle Bill. A time for others to share memories of the honored guest was both humorous and serious.
Linda Davis, Tuttle’s WWII Flight of Honor guardian to Washington, D.C., reminisced about the special day in October, 2010.
Everyone visited with each other while enjoying refreshments. Tuttle was especially happy to see his niece Pat Brady from Durham. The honoree received many special cards and personal gifts which he enjoyed. There was an atmosphere of love and happiness flowing throughout the afternoon during the celebration for this very special man. Others helping with the celebration were Amanda Kirkman, Chad Boyles, and Pam Butner.
Tuttle also enjoyed an outing with his immediate family at The Depot Restaurant in Dobson planned by his sister, Barbara Westmoreland. He was surprised at this celebration by a niece, Shirley Wade, and a nephew, Jeff Weber, who both flew in from Florida and another niece, Sheila Tuttle, who flew in from New York.
Bill Tuttle was the owner of Ogburn Station Auto Parts in Winston-Salem.
He is retired and enjoys attending Tabernacle United Methodist Church in Tobaccoville where he is a faithful member. He also enjoys racing, gardening, and playing bingo.
