South Westerlo: Gordon Homer Tuttle, a lifelong resident of South Westerlo, passed away on Saturday, March 26,2022 at Greene Meadows Nursing Home under hospice care; he was 87 years old. Born December 25,1934 at Albany Medical Center, he was one of the four "Christmas babies" pictured in the Times Union that year. As a boy, Gordon was already making motor sounds while running at play, pretending he was driving. Gordon graduated from Greenville Central School, class of 1953. He was drafted into the Army and deployed to Germany; enjoying his time there, he was assigned to heavy truck mechanic school and graduated the top of his class. After his military service he was employed by three local car dealerships, before working and later retiring after 20 years of service from the Albany County D.O.T in Voorheesville. He then joined the Norton Hill Wildlife Club, and went on the annual trips to their camp in the Adirondacks. Gordon remained a bachelor, becoming very self sufficient and independent. In his early eighties his short term memory failed, leaving him unable to drive. He was cared for by his sister and private aides. Gordon is survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Sheila and Orlo Wagoner; two nieces, Janet Niles and Karen Salzer, as well as their families. A celebration of Gordon's life will take place on Saturday, April 9, from 1-3 pm with a memorial service at 2:30pm at A.J.Cunningham Funeral Home, 4898 State Route 81, Greenville.
