David "Spike"'s Tribute Wall

Tributes (3):

  • Dave is a Mason and Shriner who would drive the go carts in parades to bring money to the children in the Shriners hospital. He was always ready to have some fun and provide a good laugh. He was also very opinionated when it came to politics and could argue with the best of them. I will really miss this man who I consider my brother. Rest In Peace Dave, SMIB

  • I loved David his genuine care was wonderful. He will be missed by my boys. David went to all of my son’s basketball games he was invested in his family and such a big part or ours. He truly cared for those around him and touched them with his presence. God hold him tightly in his arms and bring comfort to all that will miss him terribly.

  • My sympathies to the Hoffman family. Dave was such a fun loving and caring person. I can still hear his laughter. He will be dearly missed by all those that knew him. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Big hugs.
