George Martin Hoffman, 82, of Brookville, Pa., passed away on Friday, Dec. 22, 2017, at the Penn Highlands Hospital in DuBois, Pa.
George was born on Feb. 19, 1935, to the late George M. and Edna B. (Siler) Hoffman, in Pittsburgh, Pa.
George graduated from Slippery Rock High School with the Class of 1953. He went on to work for multiple establishments and industries including Kocher's Grove City Greenhouse as well as delivering 90 cans of milk daily as a delivery driver for Eppinger Trucking. He went on to hold positions at Youngstown Sheet and Tube, the 7UP Bottling Company and then to Here's Howe of Grove City where he spent 30 years, retiring as vice president of route sales.
He married the love of his life, Joan Mae (Brobeck) Hoffman, on May 16, 1957, in Slippery Rock, Pa. Joan precedes him in passing.
George associated with many different groups of people including the Presbyterian Church of Brookville, Pa., Hobah Lodge 276 in Brookville, and The Heritage House. He was also a part of multiple singing organizations including the NBC Barbershop Chorus, the Brookville Community Choir as well as a member of the Church Choir; he sang for over 70 years.
Amid his many achievements and jobs, he found time to pursue the hobbies he loved. He restored antique tractors and engines as well as caning chairs and refinishing other furniture. He enjoyed bringing warmth to those in need, so he volunteered for Meals on Wheels and visited shut-ins. He always looked forward to spending time with friends and family. His children and grandchildren are his pride and joy, and he loved watching them grow and spending time with them on visits. George was a good man who will be missed by his family and community for many years to come.
George is survived by four daughters: Judith E. (Richard) Peck of Bristol, Conn., Janet H. Mohney of Brookville, Pa., Jacquelyn B. Skinner of Beaver, Pa., Jennifer L. (Troy) Sjostrom of Niceville, Fla.; one son, John E. Hoffman of San Francisco; five grandchildren; and one sister, Elaine Wimer of Ravenna, Ohio.
In addition to his wife and parents, George is preceded in death by one sister, Carolyn Shartzer.
