Al Hoffmann passed into the eternal care of his Savior, Jesus Christ, in the Powell Hospital early on Wednesday morning, April 15th, 2009

Born June 21, 1918 near Ashley North Dakota, he made his way through youth as a semi-orphan until old enough to enlist in the U.S. Army. He served during W.W. II and was honorably discharged in 1945 after having achieved the rank of First Sergeant.

During his furlough in 1940 he married "My Frieda" (Frieda Frey) also from North Dakota. Three sons were born to this union: Ken, LeRoy (Bud) and ElRoy, who died shortly after birth.

Vocational schooling and work in N.D. led him to the decision that he and his family could have a better life in Wyoming where his half-brothers, Harry, Ed and Ronnie Knopp had previously settled. Al and family moved to rural Powell in 1952.

Al worked at Modern Electric in Powell and later at the Powell Post Office where he enjoyed serving the public for nearly twenty years. He retired in 1978. In his retirement he continued to be active in the church. He was an election judge, school bus substitute driver and he and "his Frieda" traveled extensively.

Al was a member of First Baptist Church all his years in Powell where he considered serving the Lord a privilege.

He is survived by his wife, Frieda, sons, Ken (Cordelia) and LeRoy (Linda), grandchildren Sydney (David) Millage, Jason (Terri), Andrew (Ka-Lee), Sam (Robin), and Troy Hoffmann as well as 11 great-grandchildren. Other survivors are half-siblings Lillian Benningfield, Harry and Ronnie Knopp. Al was predeceased by son, ElRoy and brother, Ed Knopp.
Funeral Services will be Saturday at 2:00 at the First Baptist Church in Powell, with viewing one hour prior to services. Burial will be Monday at 4:30 at the Crown Hill Cemetery.

Frieda, Ken, LeRoy and families.

It's often the most sincere feelings which are the hardest to express, but know that our thoughts of deepest sympanthy are with you at this sad time.

The gateway never closes when those we love pass on, for while they live in memory, they're never really gone.

We are so sorry to hear of your loss. You are all in our prayers. As the Apostle Paul said we don't sorrow as those without hope but we have hope in Jesus who is the resurrection and our life.

God Bless
Dave and Pam
