He was raised on a farm and attended the district schools, completing his education in the old Framingham academy, which he attended for two years. In his youth he spent much of his spare time in reading and study and early in life demonstrated natural ability as a mechanic and marked inventive genius. He followed the trade of blacksmith for a time and in 1842 started in the plumbing business on Water Street, Boston. Soon after he began to manufacture soda fountains. This business grew rapidly and he secured many valuable patents used in soda fountains, giving him a substantial lead over his competitors. After a few years he moved to new quarters on Portland Street, Boston. Year by year the demand for the fountains and devices manufactured by Mr. Puffer grew amazingly and his business became very large and profitable. A factory was built at Winchester but the offices remained at 44-8 Portland Street. He was granted more than a hundred patents. His three sons were associated with him in business in later years under the firm of A.D. Puffer & Sons Manufacturing Company. This firm continued until 1891, when it was consolidated with three other concerns in the same line of business under the name of the American Soda Fountain Company, of which Mr. Puffer became vice-president.
During the last 15 years of his life, Mr. Puffer devoted his attention mainly to his real estate and other investments. He was fond of travel and mad many trips abroad. He was well read, broad of mind, kindly, gentle and modest, equipped with a wide knowledge of men and affairs gathered from books and experience, a veritable (en)cyclopedia of information. During his business career he employed many thousands, all of whom held him in the highest esteem and affection. He had a fine physique, good health and great energy of mind and body. In politics he was a Republican, but he took no very active part in public affairs and declined public honors.
After living in Boston for a few years he made his home in Somerville for a period of fourteen years, removing thence to Medford. The section near his home is know as Puffer corner. During his last years his legal residence was at Derry, NH.
He died at Medford, after an illness of a few hours. The interment was in Oak Grove Cemetery, Medford. The funeral was at his late residence, 203 High Street. His will, dated March 15, 1897, was proved at Exeter, N H. His legal residence was in West Derry, NH where he had a summer home. In his will he bequeathed to his children, to his half-brother Jonas L. Whitney, the daughters of his half-sister Abigail Hewitt and his half-sister Hannah C. Felton.

The 1870 Malden, MA city directory lists him as living on High Street, Medford, MA on the corner of Purchase.
