Ross John Kaufman, of Hanover, passed away suddenly in the Township of Chatsworth on Monday, June 29, 2020. He was 69.
Born on Chirstmas Day in 1950 to the late Albert and Ruby (nee Haug) Kaufman in Hanover. Ross was a good old fashioned man with good old fashioned values. He took pride in all he did and excelled at it. Some would say that his best work was raising his children and teaching them family values in his own special "dad" way. He was a hard worker and was never afraid to get dirty. His hands were strong but his heart was gentle. He loved working with wood and decided to become self employed in the logging industry. He will be remembered by many people within the forestry industry. In his spare time he enjoyed fishing and hunting and helping others on their farms with their work.
Loved father of Kevin Kaufman (Elyshia Lester) of Tara, Ryan Kaufman (Corina Purdy) of RR#4 Paisley, Andrea Kaufman of Hanover and Lisa (Sean) Six of Chesley. Always an especially fun grandpa of Cameron Kaufman, Elizabeth and Megan Longmire, Gavin and Chloe Yetman and Austin and Mia Six. Sadly he will not able to meet his newest grandbaby with only 7 weeks or so to go until delivery. He will be remembered by his best friend Lillian Panos, whom they shared over 30 years of laughter and fun together. Dear brother in law of Jim Panos and Renate Kaufman both of Hanover. Predeceased by his parents, brother Murray Kaufman, a sister Marlene in infancy and Shirley Panos.
To honour his wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial celebration will be held at a later date once gathering restrictions have lifted and we are able to hug and share memories together.
Memorial donations to the Cancer Society would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy. Arrangements entrusted to the care of Mighton Funeral Home.
