Glenn Hoffman Obituary

Glenn S. Hoffman, 78, of Marathon, went home to be with his heavenly father on January 11, 2024.

Born in Holly, Michigan to George and Mildred Hoffman, the 5th of 6 kids.  He married Louise Walraven in Fenton, Michigan and she was the love of his life for 59 years. 

Glenn always had a strong will and an entrepreneurial spirit.  He was a dairy farmer from a young age…taking over the family farm in Michigan with his brother, and later, buying a farm in Marathon, Wisconsin.  After he sold the farm in 1996, Glenn bought and sold toys and antiques all over the United States for many years.  The last several years, Glenn and Louise split their time between Wisconsin and Florida.

Glenn was also very community-minded.  He served on the Edgar School Board, the board of the Pine Valley Cheese Factory, the Stratford Bank board, and the board of the Stratford Community Bible Church.  He was a founding member of the Marathon Fellowship Bible Church.

In his free time, Glenn enjoyed talking to people, hunting, travel, watching old movies and going out to eat.  He always had a story to tell and he enjoyed a good debate and negotiating a good deal. The relationships he built were the most important thing to him.  He made friends everywhere he went, and he was great at staying in touch with everyone. 

He is preceeded in death by his parents, his brothers Gary Hoffman, Gerald Hoffman and George Hoffman, his sister, LueEtta Bass, his daughter, Debi, and grandson, Scott Schilling. 

He is survived by his wife, Louise; brother Greg (Lois) Hoffman;  sons Stephen (AJ) Hoffman, George (Chris) Hoffman, Ben (Debbie) Hoffman; daughter Maria (Josh) Wilson; grandchildren, Bobbi (Alex) VanHandel, Benjamin (Brenda) Hoffman, Tyler Hoffman, Lydia Hoffman, Elijah Hoffman, Micah Hoffman, Kendall Hoffman, Roehnin Wilson, Steele Hart, and Ellie Wilson; great grandchildren Alek Hoffman, Ana Hoffman and Alarik Hoffman; and many nieces and nephews including Phil (Brenda) Hoffman who he spoke to daily.
