It is with great sadness that I learnt about the passing of Tom. He was a wonderful, kind hearted person who was a true professional during his tenure at the Suisun Bay Reserve Fleet. He was admired and respected by his fellow employees and was sorely missed when he retired. He was a true gentleman who loved life and especially his family and friends. He will always be remembered for contributions to the "Fleet".

We were friends with the Puckett family for many years during and after our time at Mare Island. May Tom rest in peace along with his beloved Cora.
hi Puckett Daughters,
i was shocked with passing of your dad.
Your dad introduced me to his friend, as Lydia, sorry, didn't know her name was Lynne. Your dad was a loving husband and dad. I was your Mom's co-worker at Springstowne MS back in 1999. Your mom and dad was so gracious and kind to me. i loved eating lunch with your mom. Your mom was happy that i was working at Springstowne MS. We go way back!! I babysat Nancy, a very long time ago.
i will pray for your dad. May he rest in peace. and i will surely attend your dad's vigil and funeral.
Rest in peace to our beloved Ninong. We will miss you, but, elated that you are now joined once again with our beautiful Ninang Cora. We will miss you. Until we meet again. We love you!!
