Treighton Banyan Puckett

December 29, 2002 ~ June 30, 2023 (age 20) 20 Years Old


   Treighton Banyan Puckett, 20 of Urbana, was taken from us suddenly on Friday, June 3, 2023 in an accident in Urbana. He was a son, a brother, his Momma’s baby, and his Daddy’s boy. Treighton loved fiercely, was incredibly loyal, and his contagious laughter and bright smile drew the attention of everyone in the room. A Memorial Visitation to honor his life will be on Friday, July 7th from 2-5pm at Kruger Funeral Home, 10 E. Williams Street in Danville. A Celebration of Life will immediately follow at the Motsett Center, 106 W. Voorhees, where the family invites everyone to continue sharing memories and a meal with them. Please come as you are, as Treighton wouldn’t want it any other way. 

   Born December 29, 2002, Treighton came into the world at home, to his parents David Puckett and Alicia (Brown) Rew. He attended Danville area schools, graduating from Urbana High School in 2021. Treighton was self-employed, and loved working with his friends. 

   Treighton was animated, dedicated, and passionate about everything and everyone he came in contact with in his life. He played hockey locally and raced BMX bikes for a majority of his childhood. He loved his motorcycle and was constantly tinkering with it, fixing it, and taking rides to anywhere and everywhere. Treighton was a creator, a maker, a builder, and enjoyed working with his hands. But most importantly, Treighton was a loving person. He never met a stranger, never shied away from a conversation, and was always up for getting together, or just hanging out.  

   Most important to Treighton was the relationship he shared with those he loved the most. His parents: David Puckett and Alicia (Sean) Rew, always made sure he could enjoy life, and will work hard to keep spreading his light during this dark time. His siblings: Jacy, Aspen, Jadyn, Echo, Easton, and his chosen brother Sam, loved fiercely and held on strong, and their lives are forever changed without him by their sides. They may have been separated by miles between them, but they forever held each other in their hearts.  His numerous aunts and uncles, and his grandmother Peggy Wollberg will also miss him deeply, as they cherished their time with him. Treighton forged many friendships throughout the years, kept in touch with many high school and hockey friends, and his passing will leave a void in all of their hearts. He will also be greatly missed by his girlfriend Emily, who has been an important piece of his heart for nearly a year. 

   Treighton was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents John and Jackie Brown, and his uncle James and his cousin Nicole Cavitt, whom met him at Heaven’s gates with open arms.  

   Messages and memories may be left on our website at, or on the Kruger Funeral Home Facebook page. Memorials may be left in Treighton’s name to the gofundme account setup in his name, to help offset funeral costs, travel expenses for his siblings, and to allow his parents the time off of work that they need to work through this.
