Robert (Bob) Earnest Hoffmann, 64 years old (December 8, 1955) died on November 29, 2020 at Blind River Hospital.  Bob was a people loving school bus driver and long-time resident of Blind River. 

Survived by loving wife Cathy, and their children Rob (Pam) and Steven. His siblings Donna (Bob), Diane (Bob), and Julie (Mario), and his grandchildren Paige and James.  His family also included his nephews, Beau (Jenovive), and Nikolaus, and nieces Kayla (Devon), Anna, Jennika (Jamie), and Emily, as well as his great-nieces Eva, Emberly, and Exenya. Predeceased by his mother Elsie and father Arno Hoffmann.  

Bob was big-hearted, caring, and always taking care of people.  His greatest joy was his family, physical and spiritual. As a couple Bob and Cathy enjoyed many fun adventures across the country tenting and camping.  He always loved to be in and on the water, and his adventures often included finding special rocks and shiny things.  As a Jehovah’s Witness, his strong faith in Bible promises brought him great comfort and hope.  See you in Paradise.

A special thank you to the doctors, nurses, and health care workers that took care of him.
