Dr.  Terry L. Kauffman Obituary
Dr. Terry L Kauffman, aged 69 years, passed away surrounded by family at the Cornerstone Hospice & Palliative Care center in Tavares, Florida on January 30, 2018. He was born June, 23rd 1948 to Donald and Miriam Kauffman in Wayland, Iowa. He was a resident of Mount Dora, Florida and Putney, Vermont.

Dr. Kauffman attended the University of Iowa School of Dentistry in Iowa City, where he met his wife of 45 years, Catherine Marie Godar. After graduation, he enlisted as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Navy where he served honorably as a base dentist at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island in Beaufort, SC. Upon receiving his honorable discharge, he relocated to Brattleboro, VT to open his private practice. Dr. Kauffman provided quality dental care to his community for 40 years.

He had a passion for antiques and genealogy, had a wonderful sense of humor, and was the organist at Our Lady of Mercy for many years. A man of great talents, he restored and built his home in Putney Vermont, refinished antique furniture collected over a lifetime, and enjoyed baking, a craft he learned from his grandmother, Lavina, in Iowa. After retirement, he moved to Florida with his wife, where they enjoyed going to the beach and restoring a historic home in Mount Dora.

A loving father, and devoted husband, he is survived by his wife, Catherine, his children, David, Michael and Katy, his grandchildren, Benjamin and Emma, and his siblings, Tom Kauffman and Debbie Barnhart.

Services will be held at 11:00AM on Saturday, May, 26th at ST Michael's Catholic Church, in Brattleboro, VT. A reception will follow.
