R. Scott Tuttle Obituary
R. Scott Tuttle

June 19, 1957 - July 15, 2012

Lifelong South Bay resident, Scott Tuttle, gracefully succumbed to cancer on Sunday, July 15, at his home in Redondo Beach in the presence of his loving family and friends.

Growing up in Hermosa Beach, Scott spent his youth surfing and playing water polo. He graduated from Redondo Union High School and worked as a banking executive for many years before changing careers and doing what he truly enjoyed: working close to the ocean. He successfully managed Rocky Point Marine Fuels in Redondo Beach for several years until he took a position as a regional sales manager for Pelican Products in Torrance. Scott became semi-retired from his professional career at age 48 and subsequently committed most of his time to his family and friends.

Scott was an experienced boater and a licensed skipper. He loved anything to do with the ocean, whether it was swimming, surfing, diving, fishing or boating, all of which he pursued with equal passion. One of his favorite pastimes was designing, engineering and maintaining his amazing backyard sanctuary. It became a haven for not just his family and friends, but also the birds he loved and the animals he rescued. But to hear the laughter and merriment of his beloved nieces and nephews enjoying the space he worked so hard to create were his greatest sources of pride and joy.

Scott was known to everyone for his humorous and playful disposition. He was a wealth of knowledge on a myriad of subjects and loved to share that wisdom. He was skillful in working with wood and anything mechanical. Instinctively, he could reconstruct or repair most anything. He was generous with his time and handiwork and was always eager to help with any project, great or small.

Scott had the kindest heart, the brightest eyes, and the warmest smile, all of which captivated the love of his life, Margie, who he knew he would marry from the first day that he met her. During their 21 years of marriage, they lived a life full of adventure and travel, a life they pursued with spontaneity and zeal. Although Scott lived his life to the fullest, in his final days, his only regrets were that he would not physically be by Margie's side, to continue to make her laugh, to hold her, to protect her, and grow old with her.

Scott's brother, Bruce, was his best friend and hero. They were inseparable and not a day went by without them sharing some part of it laughing, talking, or helping each other. The brotherhood they shared was an enviable bond, which only grew stronger over time. Although they were separate beings, they were unified in mind and spirit. Their love, respect and trust for each other was not only exemplary, but a privilege to witness.

Margie, Bruce, Scott's sister-in-law, Coco, his niece, Allison, his nephew, Dana, as well as Margie's loving family survive him. Scott loved life and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

The celebration of Scott's life will be held in Redondo Beach, at the Portofino Hotel, Grand Ballroom, Monday, August 13, 6 PM.
