Burnet “Bernie” Felix Kaufman, age 76, of St. Marys and formerly of Stratford, passed away suddenly surrounded by his family at St. Marys Memorial Hospital on Sunday, December 31, 2017. Born in Stratford, son of the late Carl and Myrtle (Black) Kaufman. Best Friend and true love of 52 years to Audrey (Gillespie) Kaufman. Loving father of Chris (Clark) Williams, Carl Kaufman (Dorothy McKay) and Corinne Kaufman (Jeff Collins). Proud grandfather of Keshia Williams (Spencer Fuhrman), Natasha Williams (Frankie Tiano), Cade Kaufman, Tate Kaufman, Avery Collins and Ainsley Collins. Bernie was also anxiously waiting for the birth of his first great grandchild.  Bernie will be remembered by his brother-in-law and sisters-in-law; Margaret Kaufman, June Kaufman, Danny Gillespie (Mary), Cathy Bennett (Merv) and his many cousins, nieces and nephews. Dad cherished two things in his life. His family and golfing. We prefer to think we topped the list. His second family at the Municipal Golf Course and the group in St. Marys known as the “Sandbaggers” will surely miss him. But at least now someone else can take top spot on the leader board.  Besides his parents, Bernie was predeceased by his two brothers; David Kaufman and Gary Kaufman. Family and friends are invited to call at the W. G. Young Funeral Home, 430 Huron Street, Stratford on Thursday, January 4, 2018 from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m.. The funeral service will take place at the funeral home on Friday, January 5, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Reception to follow. As expressions of sympathy memorial donations may be made to Junior Golfers Program at Stratford Municipal Golf Course or St. Marys Golf and Country Club through the funeral home. 519.271.7411.www.wgyoungfuneralhome.com
