  • Sending condolences to the entire Hoffner family. Jack was a good-natured guy with a great sense of humor. I could always count on a spry comment from him about my “big hair” as soon as I walked through the door. I especially enjoyed learning about his unusual and interesting hobby of pigeon racing, so much so that he let my neighbor adopt some of his birds to start our own backyard coop which we had for many years. I’m sure he will be missed; prayers to all.
