PLAISTOW - Dwight "Pop" Tuttle, 77, passed away very peacefully on Wed., July 28, 2010, at the Heart of Florida Regional Medical Center in Davenport, FL.
Dwight was born on April 21, 1933, in Dryden, ME, and was the son of the late John and Lettie Tuttle, and brother of the late John Tuttle. He resided in New Hampshire and Clermont, FL. Dwight served in the United States Army and was a life member of AMVETS Post 147 in Haverhill, MA.
He was the owner/cook of several local and well known eateries including Mark's Deli in Haverhill, MA, and then his 25 year summer spot in Fremont, known as Pops Onion Rings, famous for its fried clams and homemade onion rings. Anyone who knew Dwight affectionately called him "Pop." He loved to talk about sports, eat, cook, and share food and stories with others. He was an avid New England sports fan and was always seen wearing his coveted Red Sox jacket. Dwight was a very social person, enjoyed parties, and spending time with his family.
He is survived by his beloved and wife of 54 years, Marie (Doolan) Tuttle; his three children, Cindy and her husband Roger, Dwight and his wife Beth, and Michael and his wife Traci Jaye; four grandchildren, Jamie, Michael, Robert, and John; and one great-granddaughter, Kiara Lynn, and many, many friends. Pop's sense of humor, the way he loved, and his wonderful food will be greatly missed.
His funeral service was held on August 9, at Brookside Chapel & Funeral Home, Plaistow. Friends who wish to make memorial donations are asked to send contributions to the veteran's association of their choice.
The family of Dwight Tuttle would like to extend a special thank you to all the doctors and staff at the various Massachusetts and Florida hospitals and Penacook Place that provided attentive care and support over the years.
