Tim Edward Puckett, age 51, of Merriam Woods, Missouri, passed away Wednesday, May 13, 2020 in Springfield, Missouri. He entered this life May 17, 1968, in King City, Missouri, the son of Millard and Carol (Cooper) Puckett. A brother, Thomas Edward Nelson, has preceded him in death.

A lighthearted soul, Tim would do about anything to make people laugh. He told jokes, surprised others with his antics, and even wore costumes to get a grin from the people around him. Tim was an avid Chiefs fan, Batman movie man, and KISS group collector. He knew and could identify all Missouri birds and snakes. Tim enjoyed mushroom hunting and eating the bounty afterwards. He was a captain of the volunteer Western Taney County Fire Department, station #2. The apple of his eye and pride of his life were his children, whom he loved as much as his heart could possibly hold. There have been numerous laughs, good times, and memories that will bring smiles to the faces of those who knew him. He will be greatly missed.
Tim is survived by his three children: Matthew Puckett of Walnut Shade, Missouri, Amanda Puckett of Macks Creek, Missouri, and Bella Puckett of Macks Creek, Missouri; parents, Carol and Millard Puckett of Merriam Woods, Missouri; sister, Rhonda (Leslie) Shanks of Clarksville, Tennessee; sister, Kyla (DeWayne) Carmichael of San Antonio, Texas; brother, Eric Puckett of Rockaway Beach, Missouri; brother, Von (Barbara) Puckett of Willard, Missouri; sister, Becky Schieber of Marshfield, Missouri; and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.
A family celebration of life will be planned for a later time. To leave an online condolence, please visit www.cremationsoftheozarks.com.
