George Joseph Hoffmann Obituary

September 23, 1930 - July 31, 2016

George served in the United States Army during the Korean War, and was the sole survivor of his Unit to come home. In later years, he came to Paradise with his family, and established his primary business as an auctioneer, and owner of the Skyway General Store for many years until his wife's passing. He was a devoted member of many organizations, giving of his time, talent, and resources to the Elks Lodge (in various Lodges), the Lyons Club, Rotary International, the Colusa County Sheriff's Volunteers, the Arbuckle UMC Food Bank, and the Moose Lodge.

George moved to Arbuckle to live with his daughter and her family for 8 years before being accepted into the Yountville Veteran's Home in Napa, where he volunteered for many more years, working in the base pharmacy, caretaking of the social room, and helping his friends in the Alzheimer unit.

George loved to travel and, during his life he traveled most of the world with his wife, his friends and his family. Inability to walk in his 80's did not stop him – he became skilled at using a scooter to see the world.

George is preceded in rest by his loving wife, Betty Hoffmann, and son, Daniel Scholl; children Cathleen D. Baba, Christopher George Hoffmann, and Georgia Ann Stearns; grandchildren Trish, Cara, Joseph, Carl, Jameson, Michele, and Amanda, and the children of Christopher; great-grandchildren Brittany, Tritt, and Tayetum, and the children of Cara. George is also survived by his sister, Barbara Braun. His parents and brother, Bob, predeceased him.

Services will be held at the Paradise St. Thomas Moore Catholic Church on Tuesday August 9, 2016, at 1:00 P.M.
