Obituary for Clyde W. Puckett

Clyde Wayne Puckett, age 78, of Murfreesboro, TN, passed away on Thursday, January 11, 2018 after an extended illness. A native and lifelong resident of Rutherford County, the oldest child of Elmer W. and Evelyn Bowers Puckett; he was born on February 20, 1939. He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers, Ewing “Butch” Puckett and Jerry Puckett.
Wayne is survived by his wife, Dyanna Moore Puckett; his daughters, Sherri Lannom (John Collinsworth) of Cinebar, WA, and Renee Lawrence (Kyle) of Thompson Station, TN; grandson, Daniel Lawrence; sister, Juanita Benson ( Jimmy); brother, Dorris Neal Puckett; nieces, Reba Benson Markum and Anita Puckett Davenport; and nephews, Mike Puckett and John Puckett.
Wayne graduated from Central High School in 1957 and attended MTSU. He served in the U.S. Air Force. After retiring as a mail carrier with the U.S. Post Office, he worked for Wilson County Motor Company in Lebanon, Capitol Chevrolet in Nashville, served as parts manager for Beasley’s Car Care in Murfreesboro, and completed his career in the automotive industry when he retired from Mid-Tenn Ford in Nashville, serving as a Parts and Service Representative with them for 26 years.
In his early years you would find him in the pits at the Nashville Speedway or at Duck River Motor Speedway. He loved classic cars, collecting, antiques, reunions with family, drinking coffee, and his rescue dogs. Wayne helped others in many ways and it seems he never met a stranger. He had a big heart and was very generous. He was proud to support his daughters in their endeavors, especially taking them to softball tournaments during their youth. He always had time for family, and loved sharing stories, especially embarrassing ones.
Memorials in the name of Clyde Wayne Puckett may be made to First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Pet Adoption & Welfare Services (PAWS) of Rutherford County, the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, or the American Lung Association.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 03, 2018, 2:00 pm, at First Cumberland Presbyterian Church, 907 E. Main Street, Murfreesboro, TN
