Obituary

George E. Hoffmann passed away with his loving family by his side on Monday, January 20th, 2020. George is survived by his wife, Liz, the absolute love of his life. He is also survived by his adoring children Nannette and Sean. George leaves behind two cherished grandchildren, Gregory and Madison, as well as his loving sister, Marcia. He is predeceased by his siblings, Carole and Robert.

George was born in Frackville, Pennsylvania in 1940. Seeking better opportunities, George's parents relocated the family to Levittown, Pennsylvania in the early 1950s. George attended Del Haas high school (class of 1958) where he was a member of student government and won awards for his art. In 1961, George enlisted in the United States Army where he proudly served until 1963. George took great pride in his military service for the rest of his life.

Following his time in the Army, George worked hard to build a successful career. He worked his way up the ranks of the logistics industry to become a vice president of Leaseway Transportation, the highlight of his career. As a result of his expertise in his field, George published several articles on current topics in logistics.

George, a gifted athlete, wrestled in high school and during his time in the Army. Following his time in the service, he was an avid softball player and bowler. He was also a lifelong Philadelphia sports fan who seldom missed watching a game. In addition to athletics, George was a gifted artist. He expressed his talent through paintings, woodworking, and creating stained glass mosaics. George's creativity was not limited to his art; he frequently came up with creative ideas for home improvements.

Though he achieved much in life that was worthy of boasting, he was an incredibly humble man who was at his happiest when he saw others succeed. Despite his professional success, George always felt that money was best used to buy gifts for others or to support friends and family who needed it most. Nothing made him happier than to see someone's face light up with happiness after receiving a thoughtful gift. He was particularly loving and caring when it came to his wife, children, and extended family. There was nothing he wouldn't do to help a family member and, in his mind, everyone deserved a second (or third or fourth) chance. Ultimately, George lived his life as someone who wanted nothing more than to support those he loved and to enjoy his time with them as much as he could. By any measure, he was a total success at both.
