Kaye Vaughan is married to former Alpine World Skiing Champion and Canadian Sports Hall of Fame member, Lucille Wheeler. For a time they lived in Ottawa, Ontario where he played football but in 1967 moved to the village of Knowlton in Quebec's Eastern Townships.
Vaughan was inducted into the Canadian Football League Hall of Fame in 1978. Vaughan was voted on the CFL's top 50 players (#41) in a poll conducted by Canadian sports network TSN, one of very few players from the 1950s to be included on this list.
Vaughn played high school football at Concordia Junior-Senior High School in Concordia, Kansas from 1946 to 1949. He went on to play for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane from 1950 to 1952. In 1990 he was honored by being inducted into the Tulsa Hall of Fame.
