KAUFMANN, John Cassidy Ewart,
Professor Emeritus University of Western Ontario
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of John Kaufmann, aged 88, due to respiratory failure on Saturday February 2, 2013 at University Hospital, London, Ontario. John was much admired and deeply loved by his children Michele, Carol, and Pierre, his grandchildren Claudia, Martin, Thandi, Jenna, Kaila, and Justine, his five great grandchildren, his sister Marguerite, and niece and nephews Jean, Julienne, and Marcus. Predeceased in 2010 byhis beloved wife Suzanne, John will be deeply missed by all who shared his humour, self-discipline, inquiring mind, and attentiveness. John was born in Umtata, South Africa in 1924 and graduated from the University of Cape Town where he studied medicine and specialized in Neuropathology. John immigrated to Canada in the early 1970's when he joined the neuroscience medical team at the University of Western Ontario. John's celebration of life ceremony will take place in early March; details to follow. A private family cremation will take place at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, London. The family wishes to acknowledge the tender and loving care provided by his caregivers Juliana and Jetty, and the staff at University Hospital. Memorial contributions to the London Health Sciences Foundation (University Hospital) would be gratefully appreciated.
