Raymond (Ray) Lee Kauffman

Our beloved husband, father, and grandfather is now celebrating and rejoicing in Heaven. He remains in the hearts of his wife of 48 years, Mary Ellen; and his three daughters; Sandee, wife of Roger Sifrit; Lisa wife of Jeff Albright; and Heidi wife of Jason Sensenich. He will be remembered fondly as “Happy Pappy” by his grandchildren; Jennifer, Trey, Ryan and Andrew Sifrit; Sage and Finn Albright; Colin and Ethan Sensenich.

Ray was born in Lancaster and graduated from Paradise High School. He attended Moody Bible Institute and worked for WDAC Radio as a salesman for 46 years. He enjoyed traveling with his family, spending time with his grandchildren, boating, reading and puzzles. His gentle nature and kind spirit were an inspiration to everyone.

We invite you to join us in celebrating his life on Sunday, June 14, 205 in Pavilion 11 at the Lancaster County Central Park. We will be sharing memories and cake at 2:00PM.

  • Dear Lisa and family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your dear father. I did not know until today when I saw a post on facebook. May your faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ give you and your family strength. His peace be upon you. Your friend, Kathy O’Donnell

  • Mary Ellen, we were shocked and saddened to see Ray’s obit in the paper. He was always so kind to us, and caring. There are few real gentlemen around anymore that exhibit class, but Ray was in that group. The shifting of relationships in one’s lifetime can sometimes be good, and sometimes bad. Not spending time with Ray over the past few years definitely fit into the latter category. Be happy for Ray even as you grieve.

  • He did have a kind and gentle spirit. Always positive and confident, a caring man. He enjoyed life and was proud of his family and accomplishments. Loved Sophie too! I will remember him… So sorry he left so soon.

  • Sandee and family: So sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. Praying for everyone but we rejoice with you he is with Christ.
