Jerry’s life began on December 9, 1931, in Humboldt. He was the son of Maynard and Hazel (Brooks) Puckett. Jerry is a graduate of Humboldt High School. He worked for many years as a welder on tank farms and throughout the oil industry.

Jerry was an avid NASCAR fan and enjoyed Motocross and riding four wheelers. He raced dirt track cars in Chanute and loved anything with four wheels and a motor. Jerry also enjoyed his CB radio and talking to all his CB friends.

Ron and I always enjoyed running into Jerry and talking motocross. Jerry always asked about and kept up with JB and I was evident that he was truly interested and cared. One of the nicest men I've had the pleasure of knowing. Much love to Tony and the family.
