I am so sorry about the loss of Ronnie. A phenomenal drummer that will always be remembered. The Tutt family has my deepest condolences. I pray that you will be surrounded continuously with love and support. And, as you go through this difficult time, may Almighty God give you “everlasting comfort” (2 Thess. 2:16).

RIP Ronnie Tutt ✝
You are a legend and I enjoyed seeing you work your trade on the drums. Plus I like seeing you as steamroller blues (Year 1973, Hawaii satellite concert tv show)
is coming to an end, it shows you from the back, as the song ends. My condolences too the Tutt family for your loss.

Ronnie will be missed by family, friends, and fans. He was in the background, but boy he really knew how to make his presence known. Exodus 33:14 says that God will give you rest. Ronnie is resting until God says it is time to wake up. May prayers are with the family.

We are so sorry to hear of Ronnie Tutt passing. When I used to watch Elvis Presley concerts they would get a quick shot of Ronnie doing his thing with the drums. Another band member up there with Elvis. RIP Ronnie you are with Elvis and one of the LORDS angels. The Tutt family are in our prayers.

I knew Ronnie from when he played for Elvis. He was truly a nice person to everyone he met. But a mean "touch football" player. Tore my sweatshirt straight up the back!!
Donna, God Bless you for being there for him. He will be missed.

My sincerest sympathies to the Tutt family, Graceland, and the TCB band members. I was so sorry to hear of Ronnie's passing. Since I've been a lifelong Elvis fan, and an amateur drummer, Ronnie has brought countless smiles to my face with his enormous talent. Funny thing is, back when Elvis introduced him, I thought his name was "Runnie"......a great nickname for his super drum runs! I wish I could have met him to thank him for putting so much love in our hearts over the years!
