RICHMONDVILLE - Clarence "Chuck" M. Hoffman, 76, of Richmondville, passed away on Monday, March 5, 2018, at his residence.
He was born in Oneonta on Jan. 7, 1942, a son of the late Raymond and Rosina Bowen Hoffman.
Mr. Hoffman attended Oneonta schools and was a chef at SUNY Oneonta until disabled.
Clarence had been in ill health for several years. Before this he and Carol remodeled several houses in the area, which he loved doing. He enjoyed gardening, cooking and who can forget his famous spaghetti and meatballs, but most of all his grandkids were his passion. He will be remembered for his humor and abundant love.
Clarence is survived by his companion of 40 years, Carol Johnson; stepchildren, Jackie Johnson (Ralph Hedman), Jeffrey Johnson (Ginny), Jillayne Burns (Jimmy), Joseph Johnson and Jamie Chase (Adam Strobeck); two daughters, Rhonda Hoffman and Brenda Wyckoff (Cecil); several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother, Raymond; and sisters, Delores Ferguson and Shirley Darling; several friends and relatives and his sidekick, Pugslee, his Pug.
There will be no calling hours. A memorial service for Clarence will be conducted at a later date.
Contributions in his memory may be made to the Schoharie Valley Animal Shelter, P.O. Box 40, Howes Cave, NY 12092 or Richmondville Volunteer Emergency Squad, P.O. Box 11, Richmondville, NY 12149.
