Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r William (Billy) Cody Kaufman, age 40 of Santaquin, lost his fight with addiction December 14, 2017. He was born November 22, 1977, in Provo, Utah to Roger William and Sheila Ann Olsen Kaufman. He married Jodi Chadwick April 16, 1999, and they later divorced. He later married Naomi Richards.

Billy worked in the metal trade and was a member of Union Local 140. He was a happy-go-lucky son with a big heart and a smile that would light up any room. He dearly loved his two girls but his addiction got in his way in showing them how much he loved them.

Billy loved the outdoors camping, hunting and fishing. Shooting a trophy bull elk was a special memory for him.

He is survived by his father, Roger (Pattie) Kaufman; daughters Kendra Jean and Allie Mae Kaufman; his wife Naomi Kaufman (separated); grandmother, Kathleen Olsen Sterret; and several uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins; and a great aunt Jenny Duarte. He was preceded in death by his mother, Sheila, brother Jimmy (Norman), uncles Johnny Kaufman and Dale Beardall, grandpa Marvin Olsen, grandpa James Kaufman, and grandparents Norman and Dorothy Beardall.

A memorial service will be held Friday, December 22nd at 12:00 noon at the Brown Family Mortuary, 66 South 300 East, Santaquin. The interment will follow in the Santaquin City Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made for his daughters to an account that has been set up at any UCCU in Billy’s name.
