William J. Tuttle

July 13, 1967 — December 10, 2019

*** VISITATION AND FUNERAL SERVICE WILL BE HELD AT THE WARE-SMITH-WOOLEVER FUNERAL HOME IN MIDLAND***

William J. Tuttle, 52 years of age, was born in Midland on July 13, 1967 and passed away on December 10, 2019. Bill is the son of Blaine and Patricia (Dyer) Tuttle, both of whom are deceased. Bill is survived by his wife of twenty-one years, Wendy (Rosebrugh), her family, his godchild Emma Roth, and many family members and friends.

Bill graduated from H.H. Dow High School, Ferris State University, and Northwood University where he earned his M.B.A degree. Bill was proud to work for General Motors as a District Service Manager, and his most fulfilling role was being a Regional Training Manager where he worked with high schools and community colleges helping students enter careers as automotive technicians. Bill’s career provided him and Wendy with wonderful opportunities including living in California, Wisconsin, Ohio, and then ultimately returning home to Michigan.

Outside of work, if Bill was not in his garage tinkering, he could be found making memories at the Higgins Lake cabin. He also enjoyed the Seney cabin on Driggs Lake, fishing, bird and deer hunting, classic cars, camping, traveling, and he loved most of all, snowmobiling. These activities were always done with friends and family. Bill was a people person who cherished relationship and good ol’ fashioned socializing and visiting.

Bill had the utmost respect for Veterans and was honored to be a volunteer at the American Legion Midland BerryHill Post #165. Bill will be remembered for being a great man who was kind and loyal to his friends and family.
