Kaiden Michael Kauffman, age 12, of Isanti passed away unexpectedly at home on September 22, 2017. Memorial services will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, September 29, 2017 at New Hope Community Church in Cambridge with a visiting time 1 hour prior.
Kaiden was born February 16, 2005 in Mora, MN to John Paul Kauffman and Ashley Rose Hanson. He was raised by his grandparents Nathan and Dawn Mace in Isanti, MN where he attended the 7th grade at the Minnesota Center.
Kaiden enjoyed many things including video games, music, fishing, basketball, football, BMX, hunting, and spending time with family.
Kaiden was a boy who had a compassionate heart and felt every emotion deeply. He loved his family more than they probably knew. He battled many mental health issues throughout his life. His family did their best to walk beside him and support him in his journey. Unfortunately it was a battle lost.

I had Kaiden as a student in 5th grade. He was such a compassionate young man. He would bring me chocolate or a coffee and his smile would be beaming. He will be missed. My heart aches for his family and friends.

“God is our refuge and strength; a help that is readily found in times of distress.” (Psalms 46:1) I don’t know what to say except that I am sorry for your loss. I don’t know exactly how you feel, but the Almighty God does and he will keep raising you up. And I pray that the above words will give you some comfort at this difficult time.
