Condolence to the Hoffman family. I just learned of his passing. I knew Tony from coming into our hardware store for things he needed for st Joe schools. Tiny was always kind, funny & helpful. He will be greatly missed by all who know him.

Tony was a dedicated man to his family and church, it has been a couple years since I spent time with him weekly in the sound booth at St Joe Nazarene but I will always remember his relaxed composure and slight smile when I would push a wrong button or something. I will miss you Tony, Heavens gain is our loss.

From the first time I met Tony at church, through every thing we did, to when we had dinner just a few months ago, and to last Tuesday when I visited him in the hospital, he always had a big smile and a laugh. He was a friend like few I have had.

My uncle was a loving, caring, and hardworking man. He was always trying his hardest to make everyone around him happy. I know he always made me smile and laugh. I am going to miss him greatly but know I will see him again. I’ll always have my memories of him and those make me smile. Rest In Peace uncle Tony.
Love, Kasey
