CULLMAN, Ala. – A Cullman County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) deputy has lost his battle with cancer. The CCSO Tuesday evening announced the passing of Deputy Timothy “Timmy” Puckett. Puckett had been undergoing treatment for acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
The CCSO released the following statement:
“It’s with great sadness the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office announces the passing of Deputy Timothy Puckett. The CCSO family would ask that you pray for Deputy Puckett’s family and his law enforcement family during this difficult time.


“Deputy Puckett has been a member of law enforcement for 10 years during which time he served as a detention deputy, patrol deputy and most recently as a deputy at the Cullman County Courthouse.

“Deputy Puckett was a friend to all those he met on patrol and at the courthouse. He will be missed, but not forgotten!!”

Timmy and his wife Kim Puckett have two daughters, Kinlee and Kyla.
Puckett was also a member of the Cullman Elks Lodge and the Jack Aces Riding Club.
Fellow Jack Aces member Derrick Barton said Wednesday morning, “Yesterday we lost a club brother and a great friend. Timmy was well liked by anyone and everyone that ever met him. There is a giant void in our lives now. But we will try to fill it with all of the memories of the great times we shared. Please remember his wife Kim and their two daughters and lift them up through this rough time.”
