Tuttle joined the Corps two years ago, according to his obituary. He spent the past year working as a ground electronics transmission systems maintainer. Marines who served with Tuttle remembered the lance corporal as a gregarious and committed man.
"[Tuttle] was an integral part of the Electronic Maintenance Company and 3rd Maintenance Battalion team," said Warrant Officer Joshua Thompson, who was Tuttle's platoon commander. "His work ethic and dedication to duty set the standard for others. He was constantly outgoing and always brought a smile to everyone he came in contact with."
Capt. Robert Roberts, a company commander with the 3rd Maintenance Battalion, described Tuttle as friendly and helpful.
"He always had a smile on his face, and was willing to help the people around him with whatever they needed," Roberts said. "He will be greatly missed."
Tuttle is survived by his parents, Misty and Michael Tuttle, and four siblings.
