Douglas A. Fiery Funeral Home


William A. Kauffman, born October 11, 1936, passed away peacefully at his home on February 17, 2021. he was the only son of the late Norman B. Kauffman and Lillian L. Kauffman of Hagerstown.

He is survived by Lucille, his wife of 63 years; Son, William N. Kauffman and his fiancé Omayma Montasser; Grandchildren, Eric L. Kauffman and Kristen N. Flook and husband Derek both of Hagerstown, MD; and many nieces and nephews.

He was a graduate of Hagerstown High School, class of 1954, and was a life long member of the Grace United Methodist Church in Hagerstown.

Bill worked for his father's company at the Kauffman Mfg. and Supply Company for 17 years before starting his own business, William A. Kauffman & Son, which he ran with his wife and son until his health began to decline.

He enjoyed the outdoors, spending time at his mountain cabin in Pennsylvania, where he liked to feed the wildlife during the winter months. He liked to hunt as well, but being on the mountain with friends and family was more important to him than bagging a trophy buck or turkey.
