Minister Billy C. Tutton

September 5, 1948 ~ July 31, 2021 (age 72)


It is with the utmost regret and deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of Min. Billy Tutton, age 72 of Hope, Arkansas. 

Minister Billy C. Tutton, Sr. was born on September 5, 1948 in Fate, Texas to the proud parentage of MC and Rosie Lee Tutton, both preceded him in death. Billy departed this life July 31, 2021 in Hope Arkansas, where he currently resided.

In May 1966, he completed his formal education in the Royce City (Hunt County) Public Schools.

Billy was a faithful Christian and minister of the gospel. He was also a very popular local gospel singer. To know Billy was to completely love him. He was very outgoing, and oh how he loved to dress up in his colorful suits. He never met a stranger, and all that ever met him considered Billy a friend.

Billy was preceded in death by both parents, a son; Billy C. Tutton, Jr., two sisters; Louvinia White and Margie Jackson, and brother; James Tutton whom he dearly loved.

He leaves to cherish precious and fond memories, two daughters; Debra Tutton (Clifford) and Perscilla Tutton (Corey) of Hope, Arkansas, two sisters; Pastors Eva Gibson (Lloyd),  and Mary Howard, a brother;  Elmer Tutton (Angela) of Dallas, Texas, 10 grandchildren, and a plethora of other relatives and friends. Billy will truly be missed.
