Charlie or Chuck, as he was known by many was a proud dairy farmer and active member of the agricultural community. He enjoyed reviewing history facts, the art of woodworking, traveling with friends (Tom & Sharon) and always learning new things.  He enjoyed a good old Sunday drive and always had a story with a life lesson to share.  He was the most proud of his family. As the dedicated family photographer, he was always behind his video camera or snapping family pictures.  He was the son of the late Bernard and Lorraine Hoffman of Pavilion.

Charlie is survived by his beloved wife of 59 years Phyllis Hoffman (Mattice).  Sons David (Michelle) Hoffman, Gerald (Karen) Hoffman, Aaron (Traci) Hoffman, Will (Megan) Hoffman and Daughter Margaret Kilby-Weaver. Sisters Linda Sprague of Batavia and Susan (Michael) Shrader of Gloversville NY.
