Tut the Legend

Post by Scotty C » Fri Nov 09, 2018 12:52 pm

With a very heavy heart, I have been asked to let you all know that Tut passed away last night with Verian by his side. It’s been a very hard time for the family and friends to watch Tut deteriorate over the last few months, he will be at peace now.

We all have some wonderful memories and I hope you can all share them and any pictures. I will point the family to the post come time.

RIP you Legend :cry:

RIP Tut. Hope he's dicking them wherever he is.

Owning an Elise has been life-changing and he was a big part of that. Those Tut-Towers events were epic every time.

It won't be the same without him but at least he made sure to live life to the full. He'll be remembered for sure!

Thanks for the hooning memories, tut. And lending me your driving gloves.

I'll always remember a particularly raucous night in a rather smart restaurant on Skye.

Tut was very kind when I lost Nigel.

My love to Verian.

:shock: RIP Tut, you left such an impression on everyone your life touched.

Without your contributions, S.Elise's would not have been the such an entertaining community.

Will always remember the pax with Tut at Knockhill as never been in so much awe at how much a pensioner make an elise can go sideways :shock:

All my thoughts go with Verian and the Tut clan.

Sad but a blessing. Was brilliant to get a visit in just after we finished The Dramathon. He wasn't himself and hadn't been for ages. Bet it was doing his head in.

What an innings overall though!

Am very sad and wish the whole family a peaceful time while it all sinks in.

Rest well, Your Tutness, and enjoy God's private racetrack. Some say it's Spa, the Ring, Oulton and Knockhill all joined together.

Cos God just can Image

Here are a few memories from the back of the rack...

So very sad to hear about this but at least he is no longer suffering.

Rest in peace Tut - gone but never forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
