Randy Lee Kauffman became a free bird on October 24, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. Randy was well known in the greater Wausau area for his unconditional kindness to all.

In his early years, Randy excelled in sports playing on varsity teams his freshman year at Union Grove High School. He was an artist, poet, and musician.

In his middle years, Randy was a skilled metal worker and tireless advocate for hard working people.

In his later years, Randy found his greatest vocation- being a Greepa to his grandchildren- Kayden, Cabe (Caleb), Ness (Janessa), David, Crue Lee, and Tristan- all of Wausau.

Throughout his years he loved to travel and flew where the wind led him.

He is survived by his daughters Ber (Amber), her husband William, and Bop (Ashley) all of Wausau, and his ex-wife Mia Schaefer of Rhinelander, his siblings Kathleen (Mike) Schlitz of Knoxville, TN, Pat Jeninga (nee Kauffman) of Racine, WI and Ron (Carrie) Kauffman of Sellersburg, IN and lifelong friend, Mark Ehleiter.

He is joined in freedom with his parents Jack (Liz) Kauffman and Nancy Kauffman (nee Mueller), sister Sue Lynn Kosterman Brown (nee Kauffman), and brother-in-law, John Jeninga.

The family will hold a private celebration of life and ask that if you wish to celebrate Randy’s life and legacy, to make a donation in his name to the Wausau Salvation Army.
