Marcus R. Kauffman

STATESVILLE - Marcus Ryan Kauffman, left his earthly body behind two and a half weeks after receiving a gunshot wound, and was welcomed into Jesus' arms on Dec. 20, 2013.

Marcus worked for the family business building drawer boxes with his father and brother. He was a volunteer firefighter, avid Panther's fan, a member at Cleveland Believer's Fellowship, part of a prison ministry choir, and deeply in love with his beautiful wife and unborn son.

He was born on Aug. 6, 1988, in Garrett County, Md.

He was preceded in death by his brothers, Darius Anthony and Justin Eric; as well as his aunt, Mary Nissley; and grandparents Elmer and Martha Hostetler.

He is survived by his wife, Mary Ann (Yoder) Kauffman, and unborn son; his parents, David and Linda Kauffman of Woodleaf; two sisters, Yolanda and Cheryl; two brothers, Brian and Josiah, all residing in Woodleaf; and his grandparents, Abe and Ella Kauffman.

Marcus leaves behind a gaping hole in our hearts, but we look forward to the day when we will be reunited and wrapped once again in his tight hug.

Service: Services celebrating Marcus' life will be conducted at 1 p.m. Monday at Mac Gray Auditorium at Statesville Senior High School with Pastor Joe Byler officiating. Burial will follow in Cleveland Believers Fellowship Cemetery in Rowan County.

Visitation: The family will receive friends Sunday (today) from 3 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at Mac Gray Auditorium at Statesville Senior High School.
