Glenn Uhler "Pop Pop" Hoffman, 82, of Kennewick, passed away peacefully on August 29, 2013, surrounded by his family. Glenn was born March 6, 1931, in Millersburg, PA, to Walter Hoffman and Sara (Uhler) Hoffman. He was proud to be of Pennsylvania Dutch descent. Glenn grew up in Lock Haven, PA, graduating from Lock Haven High School in 1949. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War from 1950 to 1954. He earned a degree in electrical engineering from Penn State University in 1957. After graduating from Penn State, Glenn went to work for General Electric in Richland, WA. Glenn worked for various companies while living in Richland, including Vitro Engineering, General Electric, and Bechtel, before retiring from ICF-Kaiser, Hanford, in 1995.
Glenn had many joys in life. He loved cheering on his beloved Penn State Nittany Lions and was very proud of his alma mater. Glenn also enjoyed playing golf and once he retired, he spent 5 to 6 days a week at Sun Willows in Pasco with his golfing buddies "The Spuddies." He also loved playing cribbage with family and friends, and playing bridge at the Kennewick Senior Center. Glenn loved NFL football and spent many hours with his kids and friends during the football season to cheer on the Seattle Seahawks. He also kept true to his Pennsylvanian roots and was a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Glenn was also an active member of the VFW of Richland.
His proudest moment in life was the birth of his three children. The center of his life was his family and he loved spending time with them. His grandchildren fondly called him "Pop Pop," and this was how he became known to other family members, as well as friends. He is survived by his three children, Bruce Hoffman (Leslie) of Kennewick, Kristen Hoffman-Keefe (Bob) of Kennewick, and Marc Hoffman (Karen) of Kennewick. Glenn has 12 grandchildren and 2 great-granddaughters.
His memorial service will be at Einan's Funeral Home on Saturday, September 7, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. with full military honors. There will be a celebration of his life immediately following the ceremony at the home of his son and daughter-in-law, Marc and Karen Hoffman.
