Beloved husband, brother, uncle and friend passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 1, 2019 at Bavarian Comfort Care. He was 84 years old. John George Hoffmann was born on November 28, 1934 in Saginaw, Michigan to the late Roy and Marguerite (Wight) Hoffmann. He married the love of his life, Betty D. Fehrenbach on May 26, 1956 in Bridgeport, Michigan at Faith Lutheran Church; she survives him. John was the owner and operator of Dixie Cut Stone for over 40 years, but not fully retiring as he still had his own office. John then became interested in land developing and developed the area of Rolling Hills Drive, which currently hold many medical facilities. He was a faithful member of Faith Lutheran Church where he served as chairman, the board of elders and singing in the choir. John was a member of the Bridgeport Lions Club, the Downtown Development Board as well as on the Beautification Board. John was voted citizen of the year in 2015. He enjoyed working, traveling with his wife upstate to their cottage as well as nationally and abroad. John will forever be remembered for his hard work ethic, being a lighthearted and cheerful uncle and for always remaining humble.

Hoffmann of Bridgeport; two brothers, David (Mary) Hoffmann of Bridgeport and Lee (Barb) Hoffmann of Bridgeport; and two sisters-in-law, Doloris Fehrenbach of Saginaw and Judy (Bill) Rosencrans of Saginaw.
