A Tribute to John Hoffman 1958-2008
John Jay Hoffman, aged 49, of Wyoming, entered unexpectedly into eternal life on Monday, May 26, 2008. He is lovingly cherished by his wife of 23 years, Rose; daughter, Kaitlyn; and son, Jack.
He was preceded in death by his infant daughter, Lindsey in 1986; brother, Orville Jr.; mom and dad, Orville and Amy Hoffman; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Nancy and Joey Miller. John is also survived by his sister, Pam (Mike) Breazeale; sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; several nieces, nephews, and cousins; and many special friends. John grew up in Livonia and graduated from Livonia Stevenson High School in 1976. He was employed by Trailer Equipment Inc. for 21 years. He started working as a salesman and was recently named Vice President of Sales, an accomplishment he was proud of achieving.
John's greatest love was being with family and growing more in love over the years with his wife, Rose. He was so happy watching Kaitlyn and Jack play sports. He was a passionate sportsman including hunting, fishing, big game, mountain biking, snowmobiling, and ice fishing. He was the initiator and organizer of many fishing, hunting, and snowmobiling trips to Canada and Northern Michigan, including Manitou Island. John's larger than life passion of all activities spread to everyone who knew him. He would engage his family and friends in his enthusiasm for all endeavors. His even temper and gentle nature was calming to all who were around him. His love for life was truly contagious and those touched by it will be blessed forever.
