Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -


It is with great sad­ness that we, the fam­ily, an­nounce the pass­ing of our dear fa­ther and brother, Tommy Kauffman. Words can­not ex­press the loss we feel. Dad passed away peace­fully at the age of 82, on Jan­uary 31, 2017 at the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Hos­pi­tal.

Born in Syd­ney, he was the son of the late Wil­fred and Jane ‘Jenny’ (Mur­ray) Kauffman.

Dad started work­ing at the Syd­ney Steel Plant in 1952, he worked in the heavy mills un­til his re­tire­ment in 1998. Dad en­joyed many sports; hockey, ball, golf and had played for the Syd­ney Mil­lion­aires Hockey Team. He wanted to thank Dale and Danny for all the fish din­ners and all other friends and neigh­bours that helped Tommy over the years.

Dad is sur­vived by his two sons, Tommy (Can­dace) and Blair, both of Toronto and their mother, Josie MacKin­non Kauffman; step chil­dren, Tracy, Donna, Ken and David; sis­ters, Nancy (Gary) Maxwell, Judy Kane, Con­nie Ross; broth­ers, David (Rosie) and Michael (Heather). Also sur­vived by many nieces, neph­ews and cousins.

He was pre­de­ceased by his sis­ter, Gearldeen.

The fam­ily would like to thank Drs. MacDougall and MacLeod and staff of 4D and Mary Louise in Pal­lia­tive Care at the C.B. Re­gional Hos­pi­tal for the care given to their Dad.

Re­spect­ing Dad’s wishes, there will be no visi­ta­tion. A grave­side ser­vice will take place at a later date at Res­ur­rec­tion Ceme­tery, Syd­ney Forks.
