    George and Joyce are our neighbors for 15 years, George and Pete went to Car races in Dover, Bridgeport and dirt tracks in So. Delaware. We enjoyed camping monthly with the Dual Wheelers and once a year on a week long trip. George and Pete tried to stay in shape, exercising a few days a week and trading stories. He will be missed.

    What can you say about a man with a heart as big as the outdoors? A man who loved to spoil animals and grandkids? Who would give the the shirt off of his back if he thought you needed it? That was George. We thought the world of him, and the world won’t be the same without him. Be at peace, George. Condolences to Joyce, Lynn, LeeAnn, George and the extended Hoffman family. Our love and prayers are with you.
