We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Linde-Price Funeral Service
Dan Jay Hofmann passed away on June 13, 2022 in Sequim, WA after a stroke and heart failure. Dan was born in Limon, Colorado to Stephen and Esther Hofmann. He was one of six children and became active in the Boy Scouts of America, earning the Eagle Scout badge, and was active in sports throughout his years at William J Palmer High School.
Dan attended Colorado University in Boulder. While working summers at the Colorado Springs Country Club, Dan met Nancy McVehil and they were married on August 21, 1965 in Colorado Springs. Dan pursued a career with McDonald's Corporation which took him and his wife and two children, born in 1967 and 1969, to Anchorage, Alaska in 1971.
Dan moved from McDonald's to develop a culinary arts program at the Anchorage School District's new vocational school, the King Career Center. There he developed a program that helped many youth begin their food service careers. Dan decided to change direction and teach elementary school where he felt his skills to teach math and reading could help children succeed. In the mid-80s he began coaching high school soccer to be involved in his children's sports activities. He retired in 1998. Dan and Nancy moved to Sequim, Washington where he became active in the community as a member of the Kiwanis Service Organization and the churches he belonged to over the years.
Throughout his life, Dan loved to cook and entertain people and he had a sense of humor that hit as often as it missed. He maintained an intense interest in sports and found great pleasure in watching professional ice hockey, football, soccer, basketball, baseball and nearly any other form of athletic competition on television. Dan's humor and spirt affected those around him until his final hours.
Dan is survived by his wife Nancy Hofmann, their children H Phillips Hofmann and Melinda Celeste Hofmann, and his sisters Linda Orman of Monroe, WA. and Cindy Duke of Burlington, NC. and many nieces and nephews.
A memorial gathering service will be held at 2:00 pm on July 29, 2022 at the Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S Blake Ave, Sequim, WA 98382.
