HOFFMAN, Michael L. Passed away and went to be with our Lord on February 16, 2013 in Spokane, Washington.

He was born in Spokane, WA on November 1, 1950 to Lenhart and Yvonne Hoffman.

He grew up in Oakesdale, WA where he graduated High School.

After proudly serving in the United States Marine Corps from 1969 through 1972, he resided in Vista, CA when in 1976 he moved to Spokane.

Michael was a farmer, mechanic, plumber, carpenter, and businessman.

His pastime included hunting, fishing, golfing, and supporting the Seahawks.

He had a passion for gardening, in which he proudly shared with family, neighbors and friends, the fruits of his efforts.

He mostly valued family and friendship, cherishing the time spent with those he loved.
