ALBANY, N.H. — Irving W. “Tutt” Nutter III passed away peacefully at his son's home in Albany, N.H., on Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015, surrounded by the animals that he loved. Tutt was a resident of Bridgton from 2002 – 2013.

Born in North Conway, N.H., on Feb. 21, 1949, to Irving W. Nutter Jr., and Ruth Grandpre Nutter, Tutt grew up on the family farm at the end of Carter Notch Road in Jackson (Fernald Cottages). He attended local schools and graduated from Kennett High School in Conway. After graduation Tutt enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, and proudly served his country in Vietnam. After being discharged from the service he traveled around the country a few times, but always ended up back home in the mountains of the Mount Washington Valley. He was very proud to trace his heritage to the early settlers of this beautiful community.

Tutt made friends everywhere he went, from all walks of life, all over the country. He leaves behind three sons, William Bates of Florida; Billy Coon on Manomet, Mass.; and Justin Roy of Albany, N.H. Grandchildren include Zekory Coon, Zoevea Coon, Zaeven Coon, Harley D. Roy, Isabelle M. Sullivan and William Bates. He is also survived by his longtime best friend, Cheryl Wright, and her grandchildren Larissa and Collin. He left three dogs who went everywhere with him, Sleeve, Midget and Buddy; and two crazy parrots, Brat and Ellie.

A celebration of Tutt's life will be held on Saturday, Feb. 28th, at the American Legion in Conway, N.H., from 3 to 8 p.m. His friends are invited to come and have a bite to eat, share some colorful tales, and raise a glass in honor of Tutt.
