Coy Tutt Life Story

A Life Celebration will be held for Mr. Coy Dee Tutt, age 77, on Friday, February 9, 2024 at 2:00 p.m. at The Cammack Family Chapel of Welch Funeral Home in Longview, Texas.
Coy Dee Tutt left this world on January 30, 2024, at the age of 77, in Longview, Texas, having been born in Valliant, Oklahoma on March 30, 1946. Known affectionately as Coy to his friends and loved ones, he embraced life with a faith-filled heart and a joyful spirit, passing away from natural causes surrounded by the love of his family.
Coy's early years were spent in the small town of Valliant, but his journey took him far beyond its borders. He proudly served his country in the Air Force during the Vietnam War, a testament to his unwavering courage and patriotism. After his military service, he embarked on a career that saw him behind the wheel as a truck driver and later orchestrating projects in construction management. His dedication to his work was recognized with the prestigious Million Mile Award from Bulkley Trucking, a milestone that spoke volumes about his commitment and work ethic.
But beyond his professional achievements, Coy was a man whose heart was firmly rooted at home. He was the loving son of Jessie Thorp and Floyd Tutt, both of whom, along with his beloved wife Donna Tutt, had preceded him in death. His life was also marked by the loss of his brother Jimmy Tutt, sisters Bonnie Gossett and Zada Fridersdorff, grandson Wade Haltom, and granddaughter Stephanie Southard. Yet, Coy's legacy continues through his surviving family: his daughters Glenda Martin and husband Mack, Cathy Tutt, Jody Janaway and husband Richard; his sons Shane Tutt and wife Juanita, Shannon Tutt and wife Lesley; his sisters Gerri Vernon and Bobbie Hendricks; and a lineage of love that includes 16 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren
Coy's life was a testament to the power of positivity and the importance of family. He treasured every moment spent with his children and grandchildren, delighting in play and imparting wisdom in equal measure. His garden was not just a place of cultivation but a sanctuary where he nurtured life and shared his bounty with others. Coy's kindness extended beyond his family; he was always the first to lend a hand, a true embodiment of the spirit of helping others.
To have known Coy was to know the essence of joy. His life was a lesson in cherishing the simple moments, embracing each day with gratitude, and spreading kindness like seeds that bloom into a garden of lasting memories. Coy's journey may have reached its sunset, but the light of his spirit continues to shine brightly in the hearts of those he touched.
As we bid farewell to Coy Dee Tutt, let us honor his memory by living as he did-with love, laughter, and a faith that can move mountains. His was a life well-lived, and the echoes of his positive influence will resonate for generations to come. Coy's story is one that inspires us to hold our loved ones close, to face each day with a smile, and to serve as a beacon of hope and kindness in our own journeys through life.
