In memory of
John Hofer
August 27, 1951 - December 30, 2021 - Age 70

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of John A. Hofer of Boxelder, at the age of 70 years. A loving husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle and a special friend to many. He was taken into the loving arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ whom he had a deep relationship with and was his dearest and nearest friend. He was the first he worshipped every morning and praised every evening. John was hog manager for 25 years then he became gardener and German school teacher for 22 years, His highlight was working with the bees and in the meat shop.

John will be greatly missed by the love of his life Annie. They were married for 48 wonderful years. Together God blessed them with three daughters, Rosa (Jerrylee) of Grandview, Marilyn (Rev. James) of Mayfield, Edna (Joseph) of Viking; nine grandchildren; seven sisters, seven brothers and a very close nephew Mark (Edna) of Boxelder. John was predeceased by his parents and in-laws, a granddaughter Sierra, two brothers, two sisters and three brothers-in-law.

Sincere condolences to family & friends of John Hofer. Enjoyed his company when he delivered his farm products, they were great. Had a meal at the B.C. cafe, and remembered him saying
"There is more Hofers than gophers!"
