Theodore & Marne Tuttle

Board of Trustees, 1962 to 1975. Elder A. Theodore Tuttle, a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy, was eulogized by President Ezra Taft Benson as “a man with deep spiritual insight, with Christlike attributes” during funeral services at the Cottonwood Creek Stake Center in Sandy, Utah, December 2. Elder Tuttle, who had undergone several months’ treatment for malignancy, died Friday, November 28, 1986 in LDS Hospital, Salt Lake City. President Ezra Taft Benson, who presided over the funeral services, praised Elder Tuttle for the faith, dedication, and love of the gospel he exhibited during his life of service. He is “one whom the Lord loves and has magnified,” President Benson said, adding that “he will be magnified further as he goes into the spirit world.” Other speakers included President Gordon B. Hinckley, first counselor in the First Presidency; Elder Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve; and Elder Marion D. Hanks of the Presidency of the First Quorum of the Seventy. President Thomas S. Monson, second counselor in the First Presidency, conducted the services. President Hinckley characterized Elder Tuttle as “a man of peace and gentleness,” but noted he had also witnessed the misery of war. “He was accorded a measure of renown [because] he was the Marine who went back to get the flag from the landing ship to give to the men who planted it atop Mount Suribachi.” The photograph taken of that flag being raised on Iwo Jima became the most famous photograph of World War II. “He did not shout when he spoke,” President Hinckley added. “He spoke quietly, reasoning methodically, bearing witness with solemnity, and all who heard him were touched by the strength of his testimony.” Elder Tuttle had been a General Authority of the Church since April 1958, when he was called to be a member of the First Council of the Seventy. When the Council was dissolved and the First Quorum of the Seventy organized in 1976, he was called to be a member of the quorum presidency; he served in that capacity until 1980. He had served in administrative positions in several areas of the Church, particularly in South America. At the time of his death he was a managing director in the Priesthood Department and second counselor in the General Presidency of the Sunday School. Albert Theodore Tuttle, the only son of Albert Mervin and Clarice Beal Tuttle, was born March 2, 1919, in Manti, Utah. He served as president of his high school student body and as seminary president. He was active in drama and excelled in debate, an activity he continued while attending Snow College. As a young man, he was called to serve in the Northern States Mission. During this time he served as branch president, district president, and mission recorder. He later attended Brigham Young University, where he was named the outstanding student in religion. After receiving a bachelor’s degree, he went on to earn his master’s degree at Stanford University. While at BYU, Elder Tuttle met Marne Whitaker, from Ellensburg, Washington. They were married in the Manti Temple July 26, 1943. During World War II, Elder Tuttle served two and a half years as a line officer in the Marine Corps in the Pacific theater. When he returned from the war, Elder Tuttle taught seminary in Idaho and Utah before being named director of the Institute of Religion at the University of Nevada-Reno. In 1953 he was named supervisor of all seminaries and institutes in the western states. While serving in this capacity, he was called to be a General Authority. Elder Tuttle served as president of the South America West, South America South, and North America Northwest areas, and as president of the Provo Temple. In addition to his wife, Elder Tuttle is survived by four sons and three daughters, twenty-six grandchildren; and a sister, Mrs. Clifford U. (June) Gee, Salt Lake City.

Joan and Rex Lewis

Class of 1947. Joan Tuttle. Married Rex Lewis. She was a daughter of BYH faculty member, L. Elliott Tuttle, and sister of Gene Tuttle [BYH Class of 1949]. @2010 ~ ~ ~ ~ HER HUSBAND'S OBITUARY: Sterling Rex Lewis, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend, passed away peacefully September 7, 2010, at the age of 87. He was born November 3, 1922, to Sterling and Fern Michie Lewis. He and his loving wife Joan celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary together last spring. Rex's educational credentials are amazing for a boy from the small city of Toppenish, Washington, that even today still bills itself as the city "Where the West Still Lives!" Rex attended the University of California at Los Angeles, went on to the Harvard School of Business and Brigham Young University (B.S., 1944). Rex was commissioned as a Navy Officer and served on the USS Osmond Ingram in World War II. He served as a supply officer in the Mediterranean and participated in the invasion of Southern France. He then was sent to the South Pacific to participate in the Asiatic Pacific Theatre and Philippine Liberation. He and his shipmates spent two years in the sights of the Kamikaze fighters. After his service in the Navy, he attended Stanford University where he received his J.D. in 1949. Rex was Phi Delta Phi. He then returned to the mountains and his family and friends. Rex married the love of his life, Joan Tuttle, on June 29, 1950. Soon thereafter he partnered with Jackson Howard to form the law firm of Howard & Lewis, where they were later joined by Don Petersen. They were partners for over 50 years and never had a sharp word. They built a prominent, well-respected firm. Rex was respected not only as a superb advocate, but a man of the utmost integrity with a great sense of fairness. Over the course of his career, Rex served as Assistant District Attorney, Fourth Judicial District, Utah, 1949-1951 and Special Assistant Attorney General for Condemnation, 1966-1970. From 1967 to 1969, Rex went to Washington, D.C., to serve as General Counsel for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., after which in private practice he established Dixie State Bank in St. George, Utah, and Wasatch Bank, in Utah County. Rex was very involved in civic and Bar activities. He was a member of the Utah County, Federal and American Bar Associations; Utah State Bar, The State Bar of California; The Association of Trial Lawyers of America; Utah Trial Lawyers Association; American Board of Trial Advocates (President of the Utah Chapter, 1982, National Secretary, 1985-89); Utah Supreme Court Advisory Committee on the Rules of Appellate Procedure, 1987-1991. He was admitted to the Utah and California Bars in 1949 and to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1968. Rex was a charter member of Riverside Country Club. He was dedicated to Rotary and was the major donor of the Utah Valley Rotary Club's Legacy Bridge Project in Provo Canyon. He started the Utah Valley Chapter of the United Way. He was involved with JCC, Red Cross and VFW, to name a few. He dearly loved his family and friends. We will miss his cynical, dry sense of humor and his subtleness. He was sarcastic, quick witted and a very good listener. "Hmmmhh". A true friend and gentleman, Rex was the guy you could always count on. He took a sincere interest in people. He was a lover of animals, dogs, horses and anything wild. An avid sportsman, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, golf, boating, tennis, and skiing. He was a true outdoorsman. Rex shot his last buck with a bow-and-arrow at the age of 84. He loved the mountains and he loved the beach. He was as comfortable in the courtroom as he was piloting his boat or scouting for antelope in the west desert. He and his wife covered almost every mile of every off-the-beaten-track dirty, bumpy road in Utah. Survived by his wife, Joan, of 60 years; three children, Sterling (Nikki); Alison (Craig) Krumwiede; and Liz (Gifford) Hickey. He had 10 grandchildren. Also survived by siblings Kay Lewis and Nina Kimball. Preceded in death by his parents, siblings Maxine Murdock and David Lewis. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, September 11, 2010, at the Berg Mortuary of Provo, 185 East Center Street. Friends may call at the mortuary one hour prior to services. Interment will be in East Lawn Memorial Hills, Provo, Utah. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the charity of your choice. Thank you. Condolences may be sent to the family at [Salt Lake Tribune, September 9, 2010] ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Joan Tuttle Lewis, 1929 - 2016. Our beautiful mother and grandmother "stepped into her new life" on July 19, 2016. Her grace, elegance, intelligence and absolute delight in anyone who was lucky enough to know her, will be sorely missed. Joan was born October 20, 1929, to Elliott and Eleanor Mitchell Tuttle, in Richfield, Utah. She attended BYU from kindergarten through college. Joan played a mean game of bridge with her grade school friends well into her eighties. She graduated from Brigham Young High School in the Class of 1947. After college, she was swept off her feet by a handsome Naval officer, S. Rex Lewis, whom she married in 1950. The two of them were married over 60 years. Rex was the love of her life and vice versa. Joan started her married life as a third grade teacher. The school was overcrowded and her first classroom as a teacher was held in a hallway. Always the optimist, she looked at it as a great adventure. A lover of all things beautiful, Joan had an amazing sense of style. She worked in the design business as she raised her three young children. Her homes were always elegant and welcoming. An avid reader, Joan always had her nose in a book. She spent many hours with her children at the Provo City Library. During her entire life, books gave her great joy. She read many of her favorites over and over, considering them old friends. While she spent most of her life in the Provo area, she loved to travel. She and Rex traveled to countries in all parts of the globe. Every culture, its people, architecture, art, customs, food and countryside were fascinating to her. Art was a big part of Joan's life. She was an avid collector and loved nothing more than walking through galleries, studying paintings, meeting artists, reading art books and trying her hand at painting. The outdoors always called to Joan. The mountains, the beach, the desert - she loved them all. The family spent many fun times hiking, camping, skiing, boating and fishing. She taught us all to always appreciate a beautiful sunset, the light in the fall, the first crocus of spring peeking out of the melting snow. When the kids were grown, she and Rex spent many a weekend "roughing it" in the camper, hiking the countryside scouting for Rex's next hunting trip. Joan was always beautifully dressed and had the uncanny ability to look like a million dollars in a sweat suit. The sparking jewelry and movie star glasses might have helped. She was such an elegant woman, in her stylish clothes, the lovely way she carried herself, and her general demeanor. Tremendously coordinated, Joan was a great athlete. She loved being a ski instructor at Sundance. She was a good golfer and enjoyed lots of fun times with the ladies at the Riverside golf course. She also redecorated the ladies' locker room as long as she was at it. She won golf tournaments not only locally, but as far away as Hilton Head and Mauna Kea, Hawaii. She was also a fantastic bowler and had several near-300 point games, both with the ladies league and the couples league as well. Perhaps her best attribute was the ability to make anyone she was speaking to feel absolutely special. She was truly interested in that person and wanted to learn all about them. She really cared; anyone who has known her will understand that to be true. Nothing made her beautiful brown eyes sparkle more than her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved spending time with them and hearing about everything they were doing or even thinking about doing. Her counsel was always well taken. She is survived by three children: Sterling (Nikki); Alison (Craig) Krumwiede; and Liz (Gifford) Hickey. She had nine grandchildren and eight darling great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her grandson, Will, and her dear husband, Rex. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, July 31, 2016, at 4:00 p.m. at the Riverside Country Club, 2701 North University Avenue, Provo, Utah. Condolences may be expressed at As a tribute to Joan's life, the family requests you read a good book, find delight in a beautiful painting or sip a nice glass of wine with friends. We will miss her dearly. [Salt Lake Tribune, Sunday, July 24, 2016]
