Paul Hoffmann

On Wednesday, August 29th, 2018, Paul David Hoffmann passed away in his home on Vashon while surrounded by his family, at the age of 54. Paul was born on December 27th, 1963, in Seattle, WA, to Dan & Karen (Lodahl) Hoffmann. He graduated from Vashon Island High School in 1982 and stayed on the Island where he had a lifelong career in truck driving. In 2003 he was married to his longtime girlfriend Robyn Meeker in Lake Tahoe, CA.

Paul had many passions and hobbies throughout his life. He was an avid wrestler, soccer and baseball player in his youth and one could always count on seeing him on the water in the summer months. In his later years he developed a love for hot rods, motorcycles and firearms and spent much of his free time shooting and volunteering at the Sportsman’s Club where, in 2012, Paul was voted Sportsman of the Year. He was well known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his willingness to lend a hand anytime to anyone.

Paul is survived by his wife Robyn and their dog Madison, stepson Josh Olson, parents Dan and Karen Hoffmann, grandmother Luella Lodahl, brothers Dave, and Doug (Sue), sister Karilyn (Mark), nephew Mikie, nieces Kristyn, Brittany, Danielle, and great-niece Karlee, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

A celebration of Paul’s life will be held on Saturday, September 22nd, 2018, at 2:00pm, at the Vashon Sportsman’s Club. Please bring your favorite dish, smiles, funny memories and epic stories of Paul to share.
