GLENN STEPHEN JESSE HOFFMAN

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Glenn Stephen Jesse Hoffman in Kamloops, B.C. Glenn was born in Dawson Creek to Thomas and Madeline Hoffman (née Backus). The youngest of three, Glenn’s signature grin and glasses made him a stand-out in class photos. One couldn’t help but be endeared to him upon first meeting; he was smart, charming, and could make anyone laugh (“they were only human” after all). Glenn was a natural athlete, excelling in hockey. He passed his love for sport on to his children, building backyard rinks and lacing up to teach them to skate and stick-handle. He staunchly supported them in all their athletic, artistic, and academic endeavors. Glenn could not have been prouder of his children, deeming them his “greatest accomplishment.” A cowboy at heart, he would strum his guitar and croon country classics with the best of them. He discovered a love for international travel later in life, but Glenn adored anything to do with the outdoors. Camping with his family was a favourite summer activity, and his career with the Ministry of Transportation and Highways, where he began as a surveyor, allowed him to explore BC’s wilderness. Predeceased by his parents and his nephew, Steven Hoffman, Glenn leaves behind his brother, Daniel Hoffman; his sister, Margaret Gordon; his nephew, Ryan Hoffman; and his three children, Amanda, Aaron, and Katey Hoffman. His children like to think they inherit his best qualities — sensitivity, tenacity, creativity, and a goofy spirit. He will be with them forever.
