Obituary for Jeffrey Mark Hoffman

It is with a heavy heart, we say goodbye to Jeffrey Mark Hoffman, 58, of Durham, beloved husband and soul mate of Leila (Crane) Hoffman. Jeffrey passed away peacefully on December 19, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Born in Greenwich, he was the son of the late William and Wilma (Smith) Hoffman. Jeff was a proud lifelong hippie, a fan of the Grateful Dead, Hot Tuna, Bela Fleck, Neil Young and The Beatles. He loved music and playing string instruments, his favorite being the guitar. He enjoyed reading about Native American history. A master craftsman and carpenter, Jeff became a site supervisor, overseeing the construction and renovation of award winning homes in Fairfield County.

Jeff was a beautiful, peaceful soul with a sharp mind, quick wit and a passionate, adventurous spirit. He will be missed more than words can express.

Along with his wife, Jeff is survived by four children, Katie Hoffman of Warwick, RI, Leila Hoffman of Fitchburg, MA, Dana Hoffman of Durham and Jacob Hoffman of Durham and a brother, Hank Hoffman of Wallingford.

Besides his parents, Jeff was predeceased by his brother, Peter Hoffman.

Jeff’s family would like to say thank you to all of his friends, co-workers and clients who shared their love and support with Jeff this year, to the staff of Middlesex Hospital Hospice and Palliative Care for their professional and compassionate care and to those who have donated to his daughter Dana’s Gofundme page to help with Jeff’s care.

Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, December 27 at 11:00 am at the Doolittle Funeral Home, 14 Old Church Street, Middletown. Burial will be at the convenience of the family. To share memories or send condolences to the family, please visit
