      I have very fond memories of the interest that Mr. Hofmann took in me during my mid teens through my early twenties. He really had a knack for seeing the good in people and encouraged you to be the best you could be. He and Mrs. Hofmann were such kind and generous folks…we, who knew them, are better because of them! Warm condolences to the entire Hofmann family. God speed Mr. Hoffman…RIP

      I worked for Bob for 18 years and can tell you from personal he was one of the finest men that I have ever had the pleasure to known. He always told me your family is first and your job is just a way to take care if your family

      Bob & Jackie were wonderful caring people!. Sorry to hear of their passing. I treasured my time at Hofmann Tool and helping Jackie with tasks and having Rodney greet me when he came in. Debbie, Lynn and family – your parents were wonderful people and you should be so proud of them. May cherished memories be with you always. Debbie Worsley

      The Hofmann’s were our neighbor’s up the hill with the beautiful home and kind hearts. We didn’t see each other often but were united on what we thought was safe and courteous behavior in our subdivision. He will be missed and we are sorry for your loss. They made the world around them better. Please let us know if you need help or assistance.
