LAKEPORT – Friends, family and fellow veterans paid tribute to Barnett Hoffman at a Feb. 12 service.


Hoffman, who died Jan. 30 at age 62, was a Vietnam veteran, a founding member of Lake County's Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 951 and a member in good standing of several other local veterans organizations, and a local businessman.


His family and friends came together to remember him at the Feb. 12 memorial service, held at St. Mary's Catholic Church Parish Hall, the location of VVA's monthly meetings. The service was conducted by a rabbi in honor of Hoffman's Jewish faith.


Hoffman will be remembered by those who knew him for a variety of reasons, not the least of which was his powerful character, love of family and passion for riding his silver and black trike.

 

A tribute page has been set up for Hoffman at www.vva951.org/BARNETT/.
