Howard Kaufman, 87, passed away on February 20, 2023 at home surrounded by his loving family.
Howard was the beloved husband of Sandra, devoted father to Risa (Michael) and Beth (Hank), adoring grandfather of Ryan (Leigh), Jake (Veronica) and Rachel, loving great-grandfather to Ava and cherished brother of Norman (Ellen).
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, he was a graduate of Brooklyn College and later served in the U.S. Army. He worked as a senior executive and consultant in the financial and legal industries for his lengthy career. Even after retiring, Howard stayed active as he was a member of the PIER group at Hofstra University, where he enjoyed teaching classes on cyber-security and assisting members in resolving cybersecurity and fraud issues.
Howard and Sandra were high school sweethearts. They were married for 64 years and were inseparable. They enjoyed a full and active life, going out to dinner, socializing with friends and traveling the world together. In his leisure time, Howard was an avid reader, first-rate chess player and movie buff. He loved watching the Giants and discussing current events.
Howard was always there for his family who meant so much to him. He was always ready to help solve a problem. He always reminded his children and grandchildren how proud he was of them and how much he loved them.
His wit, wisdom and kindness will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
He will be missed forever. May his memory be a blessing.
We would have loved to support you during this most difficult time. However, due to Sol’s extremely weak condition we can just let you know we are thinking of you and pray that the comfort of surrounding family and friends eases your pain.
