Obituary of David Paul Lauffer


David Paul Lauffer, 48, of Watertown, NY passed away on June 28 2023. David was born to Warren and Audrey Lauffer in Watertown, NY. One of four children David graduated from Watertown High School in 1994. He went on to study at Ohio Wesleyan University where he joined the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, an honor he valued and upheld throughout his life. David graduated Dean’s List, a  National Science Foundation Fellow, an Eagle Scholar, and a Wilson Award Winner with a degree in Microbiology. In 1998 he moved to Washington DC where he worked as a consultant for Markowitz & McNaughton. He went on to earn a Master of Business Administration from the Darden School of Business. In 2005 David started working at Bank of America kickstarting a long career in healthcare investment banking.

From Bank of America in New York to Novartis in Switzerland to Barclays in London to Wells Fargo in New York David had a successful career known for his integrity and conscientiousness. His work was his passion. Aside from spending time with his family nothing gave him more pleasure and satisfaction.
