Sept. 9, 1925 — Jan. 25, 2013

Robert Hoffman passed away on Jan. 25, 2013, at the age of 87. He is survived by his twin sister, Roberta Carlson; son, Scott Hoffman; and step-children, Katherine Lutz and Bob Connolly.

At age 19 Bob entered the military and was stationed in San Francisco, then at Camp Pendleton with his Marine Regiment. He served as a medic in Iwo Jima, where he was wounded and for which he received a Purple Heart. After leaving the Marines he worked for the Sacramento County Fire Department, and retired after 20 years. Bob lived in Placerville for the last 40 years. After moving to Placerville he became friends with Bill W. and was sober for 40 years. This changed his life and he became a counselor for the El Dorado Council on Alcoholism. This was much more than a job and he gave of himself completely to support his clients and bring about change in their lives.

Anyone who knew Bob knew he cared. After his retirement for EDCA he went to work for the City of Placerville as a tour guide for Gold Bug Mine. He never seemed to be willing to actually retire and continued working at the Gold Bug Mine until December 2012. Fishing, camping and golf were among the activities he enjoyed. He also enjoyed opera and playing cribbage. He loved to sail and Morro Bay was one of his favorite destinations.

A private interment will be held at Veterans National Cemetery in Dixon, Calif. Contributions in Bob’s name may be made to Partners in Care, P.O. Box 845, Placerville, CA 95667 or online at partnersincareplacerville.org. Friends are invited to send condolences and signs a guestbook at greenvalleymortuary.com.
