Roy Ellis Tullar went to be with the Lord on February 19, 2019, one day after his 88th birthday. He was born February 18, 1931 in the family home at Yorkshire, NY, to his parents Harry and Ethel (Mercer) Tullar. On October 13, 1951 Roy married Josephine Norton in Arcade, NY.

Roy served his country proudly during the Korean Conflict as a Crew Chief of the 318th Airborne Division, USAF. Upon completion of his military service, Roy returned to Arcade, NY, and worked as a production engineer with Motorola. Roy was instrumental in the development of the “klimco cam,” which was vital in the production of AM radios for automobiles. In later years he was responsible for alternator production in trains, commercial trucks and automobiles. He completed his industrial career with Pres-to-lite.

Roy was always the helpful neighbor to his friends in the Villages of Seaport, Fl and Sunset Bay, Rushford Lake, NY. For many years he provided a bi-cycle service to the delight of the residents of the Villages of Seaport.

Roy is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Josephine, daughter Darlene (Stephen) Devine of Caneadea, NY, son Darrell (Donna) Tullar of Brackney, PA; four grandchildren David (Noelle) Devine, Daniel (Samantha) Devine, Darrell Roy Jr. (Jessica) Tullar, Casey (Justin) Kromko; and nine great-grandchildren. Roy was pre-deceased by his brothers Frank, Paul, and Richard.

A grave-side memorial service will be held at the Arcade Rural Cemetery on Saturday May 25, 2019 at 11:00 am.

Memorial gifts may be given to Christ Lutheran Church, Cape Canaveral FL; Vitas Hospice of Melbourne, Fl; Caneadea United Methodist Church, Caneadea, NY; or the charity of one’s choice.

So sorry to hear of Roy’s passing. He was a great East Main Street neighbor when I was very young.
My condolences to all the family.

My condolences to you on Roy Tullar's passing. I did not know him, but I knew many stories about his older brother Paul, who was a very good friend of my great uncle Harold Wiedemann during World War II. I have a number of photos and mementos Paul give my grandma Charlotte (Harold's sister) during the war, so I've always felt a little like Paul, at least, was like family, and so I wanted to say that I was sorry to see of Roy's passing in the newspaper. Michael West,

We are so sorry to hear of Mr. Tullar's passing. He was a true gentleman. We remember our wonderful visits at Rushford Lake during our summer time. The Tullars were always so gracious to our family at the lake as we shared walks, boat rides, stories, laughs and sweet memories together. We look forward with hope to the day when we will be together again with our Lord sharing good times again. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to Mrs. Tullar and the entire family . God bless you all during this difficult time. David and Claudine Lachowski
