May 28, 1942 – September 24, 2021
Richard Hoffman, born May 28th,1942 in Stonewall, Manitoba passed away on September 24, 2021. He was the youngest of six children of Katherine and Adam Hoffman.
He is survived by his loving children Blaine Hoffman and Jodie Reeder, by his daughter-in-law Sheila Saunders, son-in-law Andrew Reeder, his grandchildren Erin and Matthew and sister Louise.
He is predeceased by his siblings Leonard, George, Dolly, and Eleanor and survived by inlaws Bert, Esther and Bernice.
He is also remembered by former spouses Sharon Hoffman and Gail Busby. He is survived by many nieces and nephews and long-time friends who remember him fondly.
Richard lived a large part of his life ranching and cowboying and was almost never seen without his cowboy hat even long after he didn’t have a horse to ride. An entrepreneur and inventor, his adventures and ventures included creating the Hoffman Heater, Squaw Valley Guest Ranch in Mabel Lake, Frontier Video in Lumby, West-Ran Satellite Systems, and later his Ranch Gates business including log furniture.
Whether it was a new barn, a generating system, anything that required tongue and groove cedar finishing, wooden furniture, or just about anything he could dream up, he could build it with his own hands.
He was known for his sense of humor and sharp wit and lived his life with honesty and integrity always. He was happiest out on the range, deep in the bush, riding a horse, tinkering in his shop, mining his claim, or surveying a new land prospect.
Thanks to the staff at Heaton Place in Armstrong for their care and service, often going above and beyond. Richard, may you finally be free.
