Dr. Lawrence Vincent Hofmann
August 22, 1942 - July 7, 2021
Dr. Lawrence V. Hofmann, 78, of Charlottesville, Va., formerly of Canton, Ohio, passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday July 7, 2021. He was born in Allentown, Pa., on August 22, 1942, to the late Charles E. Hofmann Jr. and Lois Deacon Hofmann and grew up in Philadelphia. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his daughter, Suzanne, and his brother, Phillip.
He was a graduate of Jenkintown High School, St. Joseph's University, and Thomas Jefferson Medical School. Following completion of his education, Larry was a beloved pediatrician who over his long career helped countless children and families, especially in Canton Ohio where he lived for 32 years. He also served in the U.S. Public Health Service and for numerous volunteer organizations, but those who knew Larry would say that what he considered to be his greatest contribution to the world were the children he raised with his wife, Honey.
He is survived by his wife, Eleanor "Honey" Pfister Hofmann, and by their children, Lawrence "Rusty" Hofmann Jr. (Amy), Carol Hofmann Davis (Timothy), Anne Elizabeth Hofmann, and John Phillip Hofmann (Sharon). He is also survived by 11 grandchildren, Hayden, Baylor, Grady, Riley, Brady, Ruby, Lynne, Jonathan, Teddy, Charlotte, and William. He is also survived by five siblings and their families.
A Funeral Mass will be held at Church of the Incarnation on Monday July 19, 2021, at 12:15 p.m. The family will receive friends prior to the service from 10:45 a.m. until 12 p.m. at the church and a reception will follow in the church hall from 1:15 until 3 p.m.
He will later be laid to rest at Holy Sepulcher Cemetery in Philadelphia, Pa., at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20, 2021.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests a memorial contribution in Dr. Hofmann's memory to All Blessings Flow, 2335 Seminole Ln., Suite 2000, Box 3, Charlottesville, VA 22901, the Frederick Community College Foundation (designated to the Parents Lead program), 7932 Opossumtown Pike, Frederick, MD 21702, or the Haiti Ministry at St. Thomas Aquinas in Charlottesville at 401 Alderman Rd., Charlottesville, VA 22903.
