Brian Hoffman

Brian Hoffman passed away August 2, 2022.  He was a 1979 graduate of Grundy Center High School.
Brian loved boating. He spent many weekends on the St Croix and Mississippi Rivers in Minnesota.  For the last 22 years he’s been cruising the canals and rivers of SW Florida on his pontoon and tearing up the Gulf of Mexico on his go-fast boat, the Donzie!
Brian left behind his beautiful daughter Karina and her husband Spencer, special friend and companion Julie Nelson, his mother Joyce Hoffman and sisters Brenda and her husband Tom & Chris and her husband Darrell.
Brian follows his dad, Gerald (Jerry) and brother, David, in death. We can only imagine the shenanigans David and Brian are already getting into in heaven now that they are reunited!
There will be a Celebration of Brian’s life in North Fort Myers Florida winter of 2023.  Please no gifts or memorials.  Brian loved his dog Scrappy (Scrap Dog). If you’d like to honor Brian please consider a donation to your local animal shelter.
