Please share a memory of John to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
John Matthew Hoffmann was born on November 8, 1947 in Manila, Philippines to John Matthew Hoffmann Sr. and Victorina Angeles Hoffmann. He is survived by his sister Erlinda Betty Angeles Hoffmann, his wife Marrietta Green Hoffmann and their 5 children; Steven Matthew Hoffmann, Leah Maria Hoffmann, Sandra Leigh Venegas, Jamnia Joy Allen, and Jeremy Chase Hoffmann along with their spouses, his 9 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. He is survived by 1 brother, Robert Matthew Hoffmann and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father, John Matthew Hoffmann Sr., his mother, Victorina Angeles Hoffmann, his brother Luis Matthew Hoffmann and his first wife, Karen Lou Brooks. John lived the ultimate American dream when he immigrated to the United States as a teenager. He settled in San Francisco and attended Star of the Sea and George Washington High School. He attended college to receive his Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, then went on to become a successful business owner. He owned and operated the Eagle's Drift In on Noriega Avenue since 1986 and had many prosperous business ventures prior. Despite all of his shining accomplishments, his family was his greatest reward. He enjoyed bringing laughter into all aspects of his life as a devoted father, brother, husband, uncle, and grandfather. Besides spending time with his family and friends, John was an avid gardener, fish keeper, animal lover and collector. One of his many collections were National Geographic magazines because as a nature lover he had wished to visit the plains of Africa. He loved to attend sporting events and was a fierce San Francisco Giants and Forty Niners fan. He was a member of the Ancient and Honorable Order of E. Clampus Vitus (ECV), a fraternal organization dedicated to the study and preservation of Western Heritage. John loved to whistle while engaging in his favorite hobbies. When he wasn't whistling as he propagated succulents he was singing along to his favorite country songs as he watched them grow. In his well-deserved retirement, he poured all his love into his wife, sister, kids, grandkids, hobbies and beloved pets. In his final moments, just as he wished, he was surrounded by his closest friends and cherished family. The family is holding a viewing on November 17, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m at Lodi Funeral Home. The service is the following morning on November 18, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. His family will be present to welcome loved ones. John will be buried at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in Colma, California next to his mother and father.
