Dayne "Woop Woop" Puckett, 82, of Sinking Spring, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2022.

Dayne was born Sept. 7, 1940 in Sinking Spring to the late Howard and Nettie Ellen (Setty) Puckett.

Dayne attended the Sinking Spring Community Church. He was a graduate of Sinking Spring High School and took Dale Carnegie Courses. Dayne and his mother were sales representatives for Avon for 60 years. Dayne was the sales manager for the band "The Van Dells" for 30 years and traveled all over the country with them and several other country music stars, including Steve Lake and The Swingmasters Band, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charley Pride, Merle Haggard, Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton. Dayne had a photo with him and Dolly Parton standing by the Sinking Spring village sign, one of many pictures with Nashville stars.

Dayne liked to say, "from Sinking Spring to Nashville, Hee Haw." Dayne performed on the Grand Ole Opry, where he sang his famous song, "I'm A Nut," and made Sinking Spring famous when he gave the population of the village during that episode of "Hee Haw." Dayne loved sports and assisted with the Peebles High School basketball teams, never missing a game whether boys or girls when he was not on the road. Dayne also was on the Cincinnati Reds charity softball team during the Pete Rose era, traveling all over southern Ohio doing charity events. Dayne is truly going to be missed.
