We will always remember John's smile and laughter as well as the many conversations about life, history, the blues, music and art as well as other topics, of which he could always suggest a book or idea. A curious and compassionate man, uncle and caring brother in law, he will be deeply missed.

Sure miss those days in EF "T". Walking the tracks was our way to get around those days. Talked to you briefly after Mark's passing, was a sad time for all. Deepest sympathies to your immediate family and brother Jamie.

I just found out last night about your passing. You led a full life with many adventures. I am sorry that I hadn't called you in the last few weeks to catch up and reconnect for a chat. Bec called me to tell me the news which I was very grateful for. We had some good adventures on the railroad tracks sneaking on the box cars and riding them to Morristown and back and we never got caught. Jon, rest in peace. I am glad that we knew each other and had some good times together. Steve

“Stuck in the mal-zone”.
John was rash, always up for an adventure and a wickedly funny guy.
I am glad to have known him and the Tuthill family.
My condolences to Rebecca, Jamey and the family.

Going to school in NYC, I moved to Caldwell one summer, (late 60's) and became quite close to the wild progressives there. John, and later Rebecca, were regularly in touch when they moved to NH . I think his experience on the USS Forestal was deep seated ptsd and he struggled with that more and more , if most of the time subconsciously, as he aged. Loved that man ! He dubbed me Jackie papers, and I was never sure why . RIP brother...

Very sad to hear this news. When I think of John the first thing that comes to mind is him chasing me around The Ellis house with a road cone on his head yelling "Own Up Tex" I was glad I was able to catch up with him not long ago. We laughed together about that long ago encounter and talked about our friends in common, our gang of outlaws when we were young. Well loved by so many. RIP John.

I did not know John that well, yet I liked him very much. He was a kind, caring fellow. I met him in the late 1980's when Rebecca brought him to her parent's home. I immediately liked him. I am sad that he has passed. The last time I saw him was seven years ago. I had not seen him for many years, but it seemed that no time had elapsed. He had a knack for making one feel comfortable and at ease. A friendly, sincere man. I will miss him.

As well said by the others, I share the same; John was the king of Expression(s) He was also everybody's friend, and I'm glad he was mine too. Sadly missed, rest in peace my friend, your toil is done. Doug and Hilda Leith

My dear friend John was a truly unique individual: warm, witty,
smart, and hilariously funny. In addition to helping to invent the cryptic language of 1950s and 60s Essex Fells, he developed his own terminology for just about everyone and everything in town, including his mother's 1954 Ford (the "I-Mobile").
John was a joy to be around. Like so many others, I loved him and will always treasure the memory of his friendship.
My sincere condolences to Rebecca, Jamey, and the rest of the Tuthill family.
