Donald Eugene Tuttle, 67, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on April 15, 2022 in Citra, Florida. Don was a hard worker, a traveler and a family man. He was born into a carnival family on September 25, 1954 in Long Beach, California to Robert Virgil Tuttle and Leone Langstratt. It was working at the Indy 500 that he met his wife and mother of his children, Karell “Chris” Coffey.
They married young and had three children, Donnie Tuttle II (married to Chris), Tim Tuttle (married to Melanie), and Robert Tuttle (married to Melissa). They remained married and in love until his death.
Don did whatever it took to provide for his growing family, who lovingly called him, “Pops”. He owned several concession businesses, and was a truck driver in the equine industry. Pops was treasured as a mentor, fixer, and giver to his children and grandchildren, and the best friend to every dog he owned.
He is survived by his wife, three sons, 15 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandson, and Eddie, his dog.
A Graveside service will be held 11:00 A.M. Saturday, April 23, 2022 at Anthony Cemetery.
