June 18, 1947 - October 7, 2015
John B. Tuite was born on June 18, 1947 in Orange, NJ and died on October 7, 2015 in McKinney, TX. He grew up in Montclair, NJ. After being orphaned as a young child, he was raised in his grandmother’s home by his aunt Mary McNulty, and uncle Michael McNulty. His uncles John and James McNulty, both Catholic priests, were close to him as well.
Over the course of his career, John held positions in banking as well as the aviation and photography industries. His photos appeared often in the J.C. Penney catalog. His avocations were aviation – he was proud of his private pilot’s license and Certified Flight Instructor rating – and photography. He left his family with hundreds of pictures of family events, trips and special occasions. He much preferred to be behind the camera than in front of it.
John was a good man. He never married, but his life centered around his love of family. He cared for his aunt and uncle until they passed away. He was close to his brother Michael, his wife Suzanne, niece Peggy Metcalf and her husband Kurt and their four sons, nephew Michael and wife Coleen and their seven children and nephew Kevin, his wife Michelle and their two children. Uncle Johnny was noted among them for always giving “the coolest gifts.” He is also held in loving memory by his sister-in-law Frances Tuite and her five children.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him, May his soul and the souls of all the faithful rest in peace. Amen
