Shawn Michael Kaufert, 23, of Sheboygan Falls passed away on Sunday, July 3, 2016.

He was born on December 16, 1992 in Sheboygan, WI, a son to Patricia Ramirez and Robert Kaufert.

Shawn graduated from Sheboygan Falls High School in 2011. He worked for Roy Teunissen at Teunissen Green acres and helped out at Teunissen Custom Heifers.

He was very excited and planning on starting a new job at Masters Galley in the next couple of weeks. With his new job, Shawn had big plans and dreams (like he always did) to buy a new truck (just like his white one). Shawn also always talked about getting his little sister Maggie a horse. (She had to ride western, though, because English was boring she said).

We will miss his smiling face, huge heart and the long, long stories he had about something that happened to him or something that he was planning on doing. He had to tell long stories, he said, or you would miss out on some of the important information.

Shawn absolutely loved being in the woods or out on the water. He was always out scouting for his next big buck or turkey. Bow hunting was his passion and gun hunting was a very close second.

If it was hunting season, there was no time for work or anybody but his hunting buddies. Shawn loved to go to our trailer in Wyalusing (Grant County) where he was either bow hunting or on the Mississippi river fishing.

When we went there we always had to make a stop by his friend Russell in Platteville. He always said “Mom, we have to stop by Russell or he will get mad at me for not stopping to see him.”

When Shawn was not hunting, you could see him at the dirt track cheering on his friend Josh Teunissen or helping his Uncle John get the boat ready for Lake Michigan. Oh, and if you ever went to Fleet Farm or Cabela’s with Shawn, just know that it would not be a short trip. You had to have a good couple hours for these shopping trips.

Shawn had the biggest heart of gold and would help anyone that needed it. We will miss his crazy dancing, long stories and fun loving ways, but he will live on with us forever. Shawn was the true example of live, love and laugh.
