  1. Rick and Jean Hoffman condolence:

    Alan, Karen and family

    Our deepest sympathies go out to all of you on the loss of one of the best neighbors and friends we ever had. Jean and I lived at 4216 Custer for 40 years just a short walk to his garage. I have many great memories of neighbor helping neighbor. He was a great guy and will be missed by many. May God bless him and your Mom as they are now reunited.
