Paul William Lauffer Sr.

November 27, 1954 — March 10, 2024

LAUFFER – Paul William Sr., 69, Central City, went to be with Jesus, March 10, 2024, at UPMC Shadyside, surrounded by his loving family. Born November 27, 1954, in Buffalo, New York; son of Richard K. Sr. and Betty Lou (Niper) Lauffer. Preceded in death by parents; son, Matthew Brian Lauffer; and grandson, Timothy R. “Timmy” Lauffer.

Survived by wife of 48 years, Karen E. (Deffenbaugh) Lauffer; sons, Thomas (Karen), Michael (Tina), and Paul Jr. (Rebecca); grandchildren, Tiffany, Ashley, Blaize, Kody, Courtney, Kaleb, Jackson, and Ruby; great grandchildren, Brantley, Bryson, and Bowen, brother, Richard (Cathy); and sisters, JoAnn, Cindy Monroe (Robert), and Connie. 

Paul was an active member of Locust Grove Church of the Brethren, where he served coffee and cookies with a smile and our Lord Jesus with his whole heart and soul. He drove truck for McQuaide for 47 years and approached his work with a sense of pride and responsibility. He was a jokester with a big heart, who had a remarkable ability to find humor in the simplest of situations, making even tough days a little brighter. His spirit will forever live on in the echoes of his laughter and the kindness he shared. We love you Jerk!
