To this union a son was born, Thomas Bodeen Kaufman.

He is survived by his wife; his son, Thomas Bodeen (Crystal)Kaufman; one grandson, Brandon Cody Kaufman and one granddaughter, Candance Kaufman. He was preceded in death by his infant daughter, mother, father and brother. He was the last of his original family left alive.
