Obituary for George Rahn Hoffer

George R. Hoffer passed away on Thursday, May 20, 2021 at Neshaminy Manor, Doylestown, PA. He was 98.

Born on May 18, 1923 in Lansdale, PA to the late Harry and Beulah (Rahn) Hoffer, George has been a lifelong resident of Bucks and Montgomery Counties.

He served his country during World War II, training as a pilot in the Army Air Corps. During those years, he traveled stateside to different Army bases, flying B-24s, hunting, fishing, and exploring the country during his free time. After the War, he enrolled at Peirce College, earning a degree in accounting. George worked for many years at FMC Corporation in Colmar, PA where he formed lifelong friendships. He loved to be outside, fishing, gardening, caring for his trees and working in the yard, and was a close observer of the animals and birds that frequented his home. He was an avid cardplayer, always up for playing a few rounds with friends and family. In his 60s he took up woodworking, building several pieces of live edge furniture and projects for his friends and family. In their early years together, he and Loretta enjoyed ballroom dancing, and later, canning and preserving their garden's bounty. George will be remembered for his warmth, good humor, sense of adventure, and ability to take pleasure in the simplest of life's gifts.

George is survived by his wife of 40 years, Loretta; daughter Melissa A. Hoffer, of Barre, MA; step-daughters Lynda Covatta, Loyce Brown (husband Larry), and step-daughter-in-law Rachel Schaeffer; step-grandchildren Nikki and Christopher Covatta, Danielle Zolnierz (husband Paul), and Michelle and Stephanie Rotzell; and two step-great grandchildren, Jack and Dylan Zolnierz.

Services will be held privately at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that George's memory be honored with memorial gifts to: The Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative, or The Time for Trees Initiative of the Arbor Day Foundation.
