Robert Alexander "Bob" Hoffmeier Obituary
Robert "Bob" Alexander Hoffmeier

AGE: 80 • Howell

On April 12, 2017, Bob Hoffmeier passed away at Centra State Hospital in Freehold after battling cancer. He was comforted by his daughter. Bob was 80 years old.

Born in Clifton, NJ on December 22, 1936 as the second of two children, Bob loved agriculture and working on the family farm. Bob later honed his skills as he developed into a master mason and carpenter.

Bob married his wife Ginny on April 30, 1962 and had their only child, Heidi. The family lived in Woodland Park, NJ before moving to Howell in 1976. While Bob was the literal father of one, he was the figurative father to many. Bob's good nature and humility touched numerous people in so many ways. He was the first to lend a helping hand, and the last to expect anything in return. His integrity, honesty, and kindness were apparent to all with whom he came in contact.

Bob was predeceased by his wife Ginny in June 2016. He is survived by his daughter, Heidi, and grandson Shane and by the many friends who considered him family.

The family of Robert Hoffmeier will be having a private cremation. They will be receiving visitors to celebrate Bob's life on Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 3 PM - 7 PM at Ardena Baptist Church located at 593 Adelphia Rd, Howell, NJ 07731. Condolences can be mailed to Heidi O'Brien, 612 West Farms Road, Howell, NJ 07731. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Center State HealthCare Foundation, Robert and Virginia Hoffmeier Oncology Scholarship, 225 Willowbrook Road, Suite 5, Freehold, NJ 07728.
