John Edward "Bud" Kaufman, a retired bakery district manager, died of Alzheimer's disease complications March 30 at Washington County Hospital in Hagerstown. The former Forest Hill resident was 86.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Hamilton, he attended St. Dominic Parochial School and was a 1937 Loyola High School graduate. He played baseball in citywide leagues before World War II, when he became an Army medic and attained the rank of staff sergeant. He served in Germany and what was then Czechoslovakia.

After the war he became a Rice's Bakery salesman, had a route in Armistead Gardens and was later a district sales manager.

For many years Mr. Kaufman lived on Stonewood Road in Northwood and belonged to the American Legion's C. Markland Kelly Post. After moving to Harford County about 30 years ago, he worked at the Winters Run golf course until suffering a stroke in 1994.

Services were held Monday.

Survivors include his wife of 62 years, the former Anne Marie Haupt; a son, Thomas Michael Kaufman of Downsville; a daughter, Virginia A. Kaufman of Baltimore; five grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; a stepgrandson; and a stepgreat-granddaughter.
