12/20/16 - 6/18/14 Born in Long Island, NY to Philip and Minnie (Rothenberg) Kaufman. Grew up in Brooklyn. Graduated from Clinton High School and University of Iowa. In WWII, he served in Luzon, New Guinea and the southern Philippines from 1943 -1946. Upon returning home, he worked as a long shoreman for 2 yrs, where he oversaw the unloading of foreign goods on the New York docks. He was later employed by Handyman in New York until it was bought out by Home Depot, where he continued working in a managerial capacity until they decided to expand their company to the West Coast. Lous was then put in charge of overseeing the development of the stores. He retired from Home Depot in 1987 as Vice President of their West Coast division. Lou's first wife, Frances, preceded him in death in 1997. They were married 57 yrs and are survived by twins sons, Ira (Matty) and Marc (Linda), three grandchildren, Dana, Scott and Michael (Megan). He is also survived by his second wife, Goldie, whom he married in 1999, and her three children Richard (Angela), Donna and Nancy, and her 3 grandchildren, Carissa, Chelsey and Caitlin (Justin). We will miss Lou's wonderful sense of humor, his quick come-backs and his jokes. He left a lasting impression on people he knew, worked with and had just met. He will be missed! Lou gave much of his time to volunteering on many committees in Sun City Roseville, where he made a countless number of good friends. Many thanks goes to Sunrise Assisted Living in Rocklin for the loving care he received from the caregivers and staff throughout his two year stay, especially the last few months of his life. Also much appreciation to Vitas Hospice, especially Lillas, for being there for him whenever he most needed help. His family is most grateful for all the love and devotion he received. A memorial for Lou is to be planned at a later date.
