Lin & family, SO sorry to hear about Lou's passing. He was definitely one of the good guys at PSEG..always stopped to say hello, always had time for you, always knew your name. Working for him as Manager & then working with him in many situations over the years was never a problem, always knew what to say. He will definitely be missed professionally & personally..GREAT MAN ! Eddie

I have known Lou for the past 30 years, and I can say he was not only a mentor but a friend. Thirty years ago Lou was the head of the IT Systems Department, when I came aboard. Being young, I was a bit nervous during the interview process, where I was aware that I would be meeting with several technical folks. Lou made it a point to see me first. I believe it was intentional on his part. He was surely aware that this could be an anxious moment for me, and he wanted to place me at ease. Just spending a few minutes with him, I felt like I had known him for years. He had that way about him and he never lost that touch. I always felt that at ease with him and that I could reach out to him at any time for direction and support. It was just part of his nature to be that way, and I will always remember and appreciate the way he treated his fellow workers and friends. Lou will surely be missed. He was a great guy!

I first met Lou before I was about to undergo quadruple bypass surgery. He had just had one himself and he reached out to me to reassure me that all would be well, but to prepare for the struggles ahead. He kept checking up on me every now and then to make sure I was taking my meds and keeping a positive outlook on life. What a classy guy, and I never knew him before then. He will be so missed..
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My condolences to the Kaufer family. I knew Lou for so many years as a co-worker here at PSE&G. He was the epitome of a kind and caring individual; and always a gentleman no matter what the circumstance. May you find comfort in knowing that he leaves a legacy here at PSE&G that his family and friends can be proud of. Always remember, fond memories are everlasting.

On this day, we remember Captain Lou Kaufer, loved and respected by many. A man of courage, for he fought a good fight. Dear Lord, we thank you for the faith that frees; the love that knows it cannot lose its own. The love that looking through the shadows sees that You and Captain Lou are forever one. "And now abideth faith, hope, and love these three, but the greatest of these is love"...1Corinthians 13:13. To the fanily, we extend heartfelt and deep sympathy. May your sorrows be lightened by the love of God and the comfort of family and friends. Our prayers are with you during this time of bereavement. May God bless, Carolyn Monel & Our Lady of the Valley Health & Wellness Ministry Orange, NJ

Dennis Rizzo left a message on June 2, 2014:
Lou Kaufer was more than a leader one could trust to always do the right thing for his men, he was a friend and confident with whom you could share almost anything. Whether around the fire or off the field, he was intelligent, considerate and always open to a good, meaty discussion. I will miss him because, as someone who was older and active in the hobby, I felt a greater bond than I have with many others....there is a hole in my aura which cannot be readily filled.

Russ Kauffman left a message on June 1, 2014:
Knowing Lou and sharing with him at the lunch table as well as during my time in IT was a highlight of my time at PSE&G. Lou always had a upbeat perspective which brightened those around him. Thanks Lou for good counsel many times in your understated way. Those who knew you will miss you greatly.
Jim Guarinello left a message on June 1, 2014:
Unfortunately there are far too few wonderful people like Lou and Lin. They accepted me and my family into their re-enacting community at the onset, 22 years ago. They are an invaluable source of knowledge, advice & compassion. Some of the happiest times of my life were spent at those camps. Today there is a void in my heart that will not soon be filled. My condolances to Lin and all family and friends. We all share in your sorrow but know our world was made better by a Good Man whose time with us was too short. The sun will shine again and our memories will last forever.
Ken Garbe left a message on June 1, 2014:

Lou, so cool, yet so warm and pleasant, I could not have conjured up a better boss and associate if I wanted to!

His memory will always be with me and the family will be in my thoughts and prayers!

Dad, No words can describe the feeling of sadness and the incredible void that we are feeling in our lives now that you are gone. You were such a good man; always willing to help anyone who might need it in any way you could. You put so much thought behind everything you did for others. We admire your strength and the fight that you put up the last several months. You left us way too soon, and we will miss you terribly each and every day, but please know you are forever in our hearts and minds. We love you more than words can say. With all our love, Kristen, Michael and Hayden

Greg Belcastro left a message on May 30, 2014:
It doesn't seem like 15 years that Matt and I sat at a table at the Lincroft Inn with Lou trying to convince us to join the 7th Infantry. Now I have a very large hole in my heart. I will miss our talks around the fire or at the USV meetings. But I think I will miss hearing his voice on the phone which always started with "Hey Greg" God speed my friend and make sure you look up my family.

Uncle Lou--UL as we called him--was my only really close uncle. We spent most holidays, countless family parties, & many beach vacations together. I have so many happy memories of my time with him. As a child, his antics like making/wearing walnut-shell eyes were hilarious & I always wanted to be around him! As an adult, UL always showed interest in my life & family, and he was a great person to go to for advice or just to talk to about history, politics, sports, or anything. To me, UL is a hero. He endured so much & fought so hard, all while keeping a "can-do" attitude. He touched so many lives in his too-short time here on Earth. My heart is broken for my cousins Kristen & Kurt, my Aunt Lin, & my mom Karen. I'm going to miss my Godfather more than words can describe. I'm so grateful that the tiny table he made when he was in 7th grade is in my baby girl's nursery. It's something I'll always cherish. I love you so much, UL. Rest in peace and give my love to Mama & Papa in Heaven.
