We lost another World War II veteran.  Milton Tutterow was one of the finest men I got the pleasure of knowing.  is daughter, Pamela Branham. sent the following information and photos to share:

“Milton Tutterow served in the US Army 1943-1946 in France, Germany, Belgium and England. He was 99 when he passed away peacefully at his home on Sheffield Road on June 10. His family cared for him for the past two years after his precious wife, Jane, passed away.  He was gentleman to the end, loving his family and showing the love of Christ in daily life.  He was the oldest living member of Ijames Baptist, but has been unable to attend for several years. He could mow the yard with help getting on and off the mower, until this year.  He was a heavy equipment owner and operator for many years. Milton will be missed by many.  He was a friend to all and generous and caring. His family, Larry and Marsha Tutterow, Mike and Pamela Branham, Todd and Sharon McDaniel, David and Sheila Baity, Jeff and Amber Boger, and Andrea Branham want to thank everyone for your kindness and caring toward the family, especially over the past few years.”
