Malcum Rawls Puckett Sr. Malcum Rawls Puckett, Sr, 100 years and 6 months, resident of Cincinnati, OH but formerly of Lincoln County, Tennessee died peacefully at home in his sleep on Sunday May 22, 2022.

He is the cherished husband for 71 years to the late Auline Smith Puckett (11-8-2012). He is the father of Susan (Greg) Visconti of Cincinnati and the late Malcum (Carolyn living) Puckett Jr of Nashville, TN. Beloved grandfather of Lisa Puckett Ateshkari of Ashland City, TN, Angela (Bryon) Harger of Sacramento, CA, Ashley Visconti of Cincinnati, OH, Andrea (Tim) O’Brien of Colorado Springs, CO and the late Michael Puckett. Survived by his sister, Helen Hargrove of Rockwall, TX. He is also survived by 10 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren and special nieces and nephews.

He is proceeded in death by his parents, Raymond and Mattie Puckett and 8 siblings.

He was a 50+ year member of E.T. Carson Lodge (32nd degree Mason) in Cincinnati and member of the Scottish Rites. He served 3 ½ years in the Army Air Corp during WWII. He and Auline attended 17 Military Reunions and he was appointed chairman of the Seeking and Search Committee to find other WWII members. After retiring from the post office in 1984, he found many years of joy helping family and friends any way he could. Family and friends meant the world to him. He once said “if not for our family, we live for our friends”. After Auline passed he was given an iPad and iPhone. When he couldn’t reach someone by phone, he’d stay in touch with them by sending and receiving emails and text messages.

He was introduced to Find a Grave website and spent many hours connecting family members to each other and even made friends with some other contributors. When asked why he worked so hard to communicate with people he said “there’s only one thing better than having a good friend…to be one”. Even at 100 years old, everyone who knew him was amazed with his memory for names, dates, numbers and events.

There will be a visitation at Ardmore Chapel Funeral Home in Ardmore, Alabama, on Sunday, May 29, 2022, from 1:00PM – 2:30PM. A Chapel Service will follow beginning at 2:30PM.
