The Best We Had To Offer
Bob's official home may be Memphis, TN, but his real home was Pensacola, FL, where his father, RADM Magruder Tuttle was Chief of Air Training Command in the 60's. Bob graduated from Pensacola's Escambia HS in 1963, and the U.S. Naval Acadamey in 1967, where he was the heavy weight boxing champion his senior year. He was truly the best our generation had to offer, and our country is the worse off for his loss. Bob will always be remembered by his classmates, and may his memory live forever on THE WALL-USA.
