Garrett Kaufman Obituary
KAUFMAN, Garrett Benjamin Garrett Benjamin Kaufman, age 32, of Atlanta, passed away unexpectedly November 20, 2017, and will always be remembered as a son, brother and friend with a kind heart, sweet soul and fun-loving nature. Truly, he was one of those people that everyone enjoyed being around. With a penchant for providing hospitality to others, Garrett spent most of his professional life as a chef, which allowed him the opportunity to serve some of the country's finest restaurants and communities. Whether at Atlanta's own Pricci, St. Regis Hotel in Aspen, the leading caterers in Charleston, or even as a personal chef to Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Garrett was most at home in the kitchen, and used his creativity and empathy to ensure others had memorable and enjoyable dining experiences. Golf was one of Garrett's favorite pastimes, and he considered himself fortunate that he was able to combine his personal and professional passions by lending his cooking talents to the world of professional golf. He counted the United States Open Championship and PGA Championship as two of the favorite events he catered. Animals were another of Garrett's great passions, and he genuinely felt that his dogs were man's best friend. Garrett is survived by his mother and her husband, Wendi and Tom Lowry; sister and her husband, Michelle and David Vizurraga; sister, Lauren Kaufman; grandmother, Mildred (Mili) Katz; and grandfather and his wife, Richard and Jean Katz. He was pre-deceased by his father, Richard Louis Kaufman, and by his grandfather, George Kaufman and grandmother, Shirley Kaufman-Birnbrey. Sign online guestbook at www.edressler.com.
