Tim Robert Hoffman Obituary, Death – Timothy Robert Hoffman, who was 61 years old, died on January 12, 2023. He was born in Detroit, Michigan, on June 25, 1961. His parents were Robert Hoffman and Joan (Withey) Hoffman. Tim Gaddis and Melanie got married in Michigan on August 6, 2016. The ceremony was in Charlevoix. He grew up in Charlevoix, Michigan, and even after he moved away, he continued to spend the summers there and on nearby Walloon Lake.
Tim will be remembered as a man who had a strong faith, was always happy, and loved his family very much. Tim went to work for McDonnell Douglas after his time in the Navy was over. He was recognized for his work on the C-17 aircraft. In later years, he started the Hoffman Agency in Hartland, which meets the needs of a large number of customers. He was a member of the Hartland Chamber of Commerce and also took part in the local branch of Business Network International.
Tim was the life of the party, had a lot of friends, and never stayed still for long. He was always kind, encouraging, and selfless in what he did. If he had the chance, he would start a conversation with anyone, even strangers sitting in cars next to him at stoplights. Tim was a good man who was fun to be around and always saw the “cup half full.” He spent a lot of time doing volunteer work, like giving blood, leading Bible studies, taking part in men’s ministries, and serving regularly in many different ministries at Cornerstone Church in Brighton.
Tim’s family was always the most important thing to him. He loved spending time with his grandchildren, especially his granddaughters. It was one of his favorite things to do. His daughters will miss his wise advice and steady hand very much. Tim loved animals, whether they were his own pets or those that lived in the neighborhood. Tim took care of and raised a wild crow named Black Jack right after it hatched, and it stayed in the area for many years. He made the mood fun and funny with cute examples of “dad” humor. Tim was determined, full of energy, and a great athlete. He played basketball, tennis, swam, boated, fished, water skied, and did a lot of other things in the water on a regular basis. Tim was also a big fan of fishing. He had a big appetite and liked sweet things, like candy, the most.
