>> February 18, 1946 - May 8, 2018 <<

Ronald Gene Kauffman, 72, of Lake Havasu City, AZ, passed away
unexpectedly at home on May 8, 2018.

Ron was one of the good guys. He was born in Upland, CA and raised in
the San Bernardino valley. After graduating from Eisenhower High
School and 2 years at Valley College he was drafted into the Army. He
completed his service in the Army Military Police and began his career
for the California Highway Patrol. Ron gave traffic reports for nine
local radio stations and was an instructor at the San
Bernardino Sheriff's Academy. He received commendations for his
efforts in auto theft investigations.

Early on he worked out of the San Bernardino CHP office. Because of
his love of boating he transferred to the Needles office and moved to
Lake Havasu City. His last assignment before retiring was the resident
post at Parker, California.

Ron retired to spend time on his many interests, which included cars,
motorcycles, boating, golf and being with good friends, especially
Greg & Phyllis and Bill.

Everyone who knew Ron knew of his good humor, kindness and willingness
to lend a hand no matter what. He was an awesome friend, brother and

Preceding in death were his parents, Howard and Eara Kauffman. He is
survived by his daughter, Charnel Lyn (Kauffman) Mott, her husband Bob
and their children, Rachelle 22 and Cory 20. Other survivors include
sister Jackie (Jim) Brown and their family.

Ron wanted no service, just perhaps everyone to have a glass of Jack
Daniels and tell stories of their good times and (mis)adventures.
