Robert Raymond Hoffman passed away peacefully on November 24, 2023 surrounded by love. With him at his bedside was his former wife Martha Hoffman and daughters Joyce (Jeff) Kanter, Patricia Rooney, Nancy (John) Graham, Sueann (James) Fenchel and Jill (Frank) Delfino.
Born in Pittsburgh on May 29, 1933, he is the son to the late Edward and Catherine Hoffman and the brother to the late Florence Merritt, Marie Sabatucci, Ed Hoffman, Richard Hoffman, Jean Palermo, Jerry Hoffman, Judy Tillilie and Ron Hoffman.
He is survived by 10 grandchildren Jennifer (Brad) Link, Justin Kanter, Brendan Rooney, Seamus Rooney, Jocelynne (Justin) Will, McKenna (Tyler) Katz, Hudson Graham, Ellie Delfino, Blue Delfino, Jacob Delfino, 3 great grand children and numerous nieces and nephews.
If you had the pleasure of knowing him, you were most likely highly entertained through his remarkable gift of story telling. His tales were woven memories from his childhood, serving his country in the Korean War, his passion for working hard, his dedication and life’s work in the steel mills and his love for his family and friends. His stories were always infused with compassion, humility, humor and inevitably told with a silly grin and twinkle in his eye. Oh, and he had very strong opinions...wink,wink.
Always a champion for the under dog Bob stepped in with a helping hand whenever it was needed. He was a devout Christian & had an unmeasured love for the blessed Mary. He was extremely generous and could build or fix anything. He even had the tools to prove it. As he liked to say, “If I don’t have it, they don’t make it”!
He loved to cook, garden, work out, camp, enjoy a beer or his homemade wine with friends and family and observe the stars & wildlife through his telescope and binoculars. But most of all he LOVED his STEELERS!!!! When he was able, he attended the pre-season training at Steeler Camp and videotaped every game. We can all bet he has a front row viewing of his beloved team and will be present at every game. Let’s Go Steelers!!!!
The family is holding a private burial service but is planning a Celebration of Life for extended family and friends to attend on May 29, 2024 (Bob’s birthday). More details to come for time and place but please be prepared to wear your Steeler garb and bring your terrible towel.
We love you Dad! If you see anyone we know, tell them we say “hi”. We will see you soon, xoxo
Bob loved babies and children and gave to many charities in support of them. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to a children's charity of your choice in his memory.
