1928 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
WILLIAM HOFFMAN JR. William Robert "Bill" Hoffman Jr. of Summerlin, Las Vegas, passed away unexpectedly after a short illness Nov. 6, 2017, at Summerlin Hospital. Bill was 89 years old. Bill was born Feb. 15, 1928, in Rome, New York, and was the son of his late parents, William Hoffman Sr. and Rosabelle Beckwith. Bill was the last of his siblings, Eleanor, Norma, Robert and Joyce Hoffman. He is survived by his wife, Rose Hoffman of Florida; two daughters and sons-in-law, Robin and Steve Vergote of Michigan and Patti and Daryl Ince of Florida; four grandchildren, Nicole, Alexander, William and Ryan; two great-grandchildren, Damon and Payton; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Bill loved engineering and was a manufacturing engineer for over 30 years at Bendix Co. in New York, as well as Parker Hannifin in Irvine, California. After his retirement in 1996, he continued to work as a private consultant as well as helping out both family and friends in troubleshooting many technical engineering issues and engineering projects. Bill also had a passion for music, specifically the piano, where he paid for his own private piano lessons at age 16. He continued to seek out higher levels of technical piano and keyboard compositions and ultimately gained the ability to play professionally and entertain many with his eclectic musical genres and ensembles. Celebration of life service will be 6:30-8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 10, at the Rampart Casino, Addison Lounge, 221 N.
