Jay Milton Puckett
March 16, 1946 - March 10, 2018

Jay Milton Puckett, a real estate broker and longtime resident of Moraga, passed away on March 10, 2018, following a battle with Prion disease.
Jay is survived by his wife, Judy Puckett; his children, Jason Michael and Jennifer Elizabeth; and his brother, Wayne Gordon.
Jay was born in Hollywood, California, on March 16, 1946, the son of Margaret and Milton Puckett. He spent most of his childhood in Oregon, where he attended University of Oregon. He was drafted and served in Vietnam, earning the rank of sergeant in the United States Army. Upon returning he worked for the Treasury Department as a sky marshal. Eventually, he enrolled at Southern Oregon University and graduated with a business degree.
Jay married Judy Rau on Aug. 17, 1975. They first lived in Northern California and later settled in Moraga to raise their children, Jennifer and Jason. Jay worked in both commercial and residential real estate. He enjoyed playing tennis at Moraga Country Club, where he met some of his dearest friends. He and Judy were able to travel often and enjoyed seeing new places. Jay was adept at befriending new people anywhere he went. As an avid cook, he loved to welcome people into his home for get-togethers and celebrations. Above all, Jay's focus was his family, and he raised his children in a home filled with love and compassion. His kindness, his sense of humor, and his spirit will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
A Celebration of Life in honor of Jay is to be held on April 21, at 4 p.m. outside the tennis lounge at Moraga Country Club. The address is: 1600 St. Andrews Dr. Moraga, CA 94556. The dress is casual.
