Bill Hoffman, age 73, passed away Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at St. Paul Home in Kaukauna. Bill was born in New London on March 9, 1938, son of the late William and Elsie Kitzman Hoffman. He graduated from New London High School and also received a degree from the Vocational Educational School in drafting. From 1959 to 2001 he was employed by Pierce Manufacturing. On November 9, 2003, Bill married the former Marie Kronmiller and shared the past eight and a half years with her. Bill enjoyed gardening – in fact he was a master gardener! He also loved fishing, biking, camping, and the company of his dog, Lucy. From 1955 until 1963, he served his country as a member of the United States Army Reserve.

Bill is survived by his wife: Marie Hoffman of Appleton; four children: Ted Hoffman of Appleton; Mary Kay "Mimi" Earl Sacred Kleinbrook of Kaukauna; Nicholas Ellen Hoffman of Washington, Illinois; and Joy Hoffman of Gulf Breeze, Florida; two grandchildren: Kelly and Joseph Hoffman; three step-children: Steven Irene Kronmiller of Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota; Janet David Lewark of Glendale, Arizona; and David Linda Kronmiller of Eureka, Missouri; six step-grandchildren: Allyson, Spencer, Danielle, Eric, Robby, and Anna Marie.
