KAUFMAN, Maurice It is with great sadness that the family of Maurice Kaufman announces his passing at home on Wednesday, October 19, 2016. Maurice was the beloved partner of Pat Shapiro (“Trish”); husband of the late Edith Kaufman; loving father to Jeffrey and Gary; cherished father-in-law to Laurie Goldhar; and devoted Zaide to Myles. Maurice was also a very special step-father to Lindsay and Lance Freelan and Elaine Shapiro; loving Papa to Noah Freelan and Erin and Zach Shapiro; and brother-in-law to Diane Buffo (Patrick). Maurice was born in Sopinka, Romania in 1930. As a young boy he endured the Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps. After the war he was placed in an orphanage in Taverny, France and in 1948, Maurice settled in Hamilton, Ontario, where he and his partner Zoltan established and ran the successful “Home Tile” business for 45 years. Everyone who knew him remarked on his generosity of spirit and loving support. We are forever grateful to “Zee” for her compassionate care. The funeral service will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, October 21, 2016, at the Adas Israel Synagogue (125 Cline Ave. South, Hamilton). The shiva will take place at 77 Governors Rd., Suite 202, Dundas following the interment, on Saturday October 22, 2016 between 7:30 and 9:30 p.m., and on Sunday October 23, 2016 from 11:00 a.m to 5 p.m. Donations may be made in his honour to Yad Vashem at yadvashem.org.
