Harold F. 'Fuzz' Hoffman, 73


Harold F. "Fuzz" Hoffman, 73, of Hillsboro, died Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019, at his home.

Funeral services were held Tuesday, Oct. 22, at Young Funeral Home in Greenville. Burial was held in Brown Cemetery in Pocahontas.

Mr. Hoffman was born Feb. 2, 1946, in Highland, to Harold Henry and Opal Marie (Busch) Hoffman. 

Growing up in the Old Ripley area of Bond County, he attended Pocahontas Grade School and graduated from Greenville High School.

After high school, he started working at Basler Electric with his mother. He then moved on to Olin Brass Mill for 40 years as a lead heat treater.

He retired to his log cabin, where he enjoyed the outdoors, tinkering, his lawn mowers, wheeling and dealing, his blue 1996 Harley sportster, and his dogs, Lu Belle, Holly Dolly and Clyde. Spending time with his family and grandchildren was one of his greatest joys. 

A member of the Old Ripley Church of Christ, he turned his life over to his Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, and he read his Bible daily.

He is survived by his children, Jeanna Marie (Jon) Greco of East Alton, Julie Ann (Dwight) Dothager of Vandalia and Shawn Kerry Hoffman of Meadowbrook; brother, Terry Lee (Debra) Hoffman of Vandalia; sister-in-law, Rose Hoffman of Smithboro; grandchildren, Tiffany Marie (Shaun) Davis, Justin Leigh (Megan) Greco, Jacob Thomas Rau and Isaac Allen Rau; and great-grandchildren, Marselleno Jay Davis, Kamryn Marcellus Davis and Kynsleigh Kay Greco.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by sisters, Judith Kious and Diane Bare; and brother, James L. "Bud" Hoffman.
