Obituary for James C. Tutt
Jim Tutt, of Vacaville, California, passed away at the age of 72, after a two-year battle with cancer.
Jim was born in Martinez, California, to parents James Deane Tutt and Dorothy Brett Tutt.
Jim’s life was filled with playing horn, teaching music to students from kindergarten through community college, leading scouts and campers on hikes through the mountains, cheering for his favorite sports teams, traveling with his wife of 47 years, attending many games and concerts to watch his son and daughter, and walking countless miles with his beloved border collie.
Jim is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughter, Christine Bisson (Bob); son, David Tutt (Jennifer); grandchildren, Cheyanne and Daniel Bisson; sisters, Cecelia Tutt, Teresa Tutt, and Ruth Pilch (Andrew); and niece, Valerie Pilch.
An open-house celebration of Jim’s life will be held on Friday, September 18th, 4:00-8:00 p.m., at the Vacaville Opera House.
