Dr. Robert Walter Puckett
Klinger Lake, White Pigeon, Michigan
April 30, 1923 – February 9, 2017

An 80 year love affair ended early Thursday morning, February 9, 2017 when he said "I love you Jean" and passed away at his home.
He was born April 30, 1923 in Hampton, Iowa son of the late Bertram and Mary O. (Mitchell) Puckett.
Dr. Robert Puckett met Jean Daniels 80 years ago and he told his friend, "she is going to be my girl", and so she was for the next 80 years.
Dr. Puckett entered medical school before he graduated from college because at the time doctors were needed for World War II. He missed this war but served during the Korean Conflict.
During his years as a Board Certified Internist he served as Chief of Staff at the Arcadia Methodist Hospital in Arcadia, California and was an adjunct professor at the University of Southern California. Being the humble man he was, he would be embarrassed if we said much more about him.
He is survived by his sweetheart: Jean (Daniels) Puckett, age 94; one daughter: Nani (Dennis) Miller of Allen Park; two sons: Bob (Susan) Puckett of Klinger Lake and David (Cathy) Puckett of Portage; nine grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
Dr. Puckett was preceded in death by his parents; one daughter: Susan Puckett age 5 ½; one son: Thomas Puckett age 40.
Bob, Dad, Dr. Puckett, you will be missed.
In accordance with Dr. Puckett's wishes cremation has taken place. A private memorial service celebrating and honoring a life well lived will be held at the family home on Klinger Lake at a later date.
The Hackman Family Funeral Homes of Sturgis is honored to be entrusted with the arrangements.
