Rev. Robert L. Hoffman
Rev. Robert L. Hoffman, age 67, of Cambria, formerly of Wisconsin and husband of Terry Lee (Fandre) Hoffman, entered into rest on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY. Rev. Hoffman was born on June 25, 1952 in Antigo, WI. He was the son of the late Edwin and the late Eva (Powell) Hoffman.
Robert graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 1974. He married Terry Lee Fandre on August 11, 1979 in Wausau, WI. Bob worked for Federal Milk Market Administration for 33 years, retiring in 2007. He and Terry enjoyed a year and a half of retirement before Bob entered the seminary in 2009.
In 2011, Bob was placed as Vicar of St. Peter Ev. Lutheran Church. Upon graduation in 2012 with a Master of Divinity Degree, he was called as the full-time pastor of St. Peter Ev. Lutheran Church. He loved serving the Lord and loved his St. Peter family.
He was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in September 2018. After chemo he went into remission in October 2018. In December 2018, he received a bone marrow transplant. There were many setbacks during his recovery, but never once did he complain. He trusted in his Savior, Jesus Christ, and knew that healing would occur either here or in heaven. He was an example to everyone he knew. Now his healing is complete, and he is with his Savior.
He is survived by his wife, Terry; his daughter, Molly Hoffman; his brothers, Edward (Linda) Hoffman and Alfred (Rosie) Hoffman; his former son-in-law, Carl Miller; mother-in-law, Joan Fandre; nephews, Jason, Todd and Grant Hoffman; nieces, Amy Hoffman Santin and Kay Hoffman, and great-nieces and nephews, Emma, Grace, Adam, Anna, Owen and Eva Rose Hoffman; also Elena, Ian and Eli Santin.
FUNERAL SERVICES WILL BE PRIVATE WITH HIS FAMILY DUE TO STATE AND FEDERAL REGULATIONS. Bob will be buried in the family plot at the Pearson Cemetery in the Town of Ainsworth, Pearson, Wisconsin, at a later date.

Going to miss our cousin, his smile and good hearted kidding. He was a model of what a good man is. While we grieve now for awhile, we know we will be seeing him again. Rest in Peace Bob.

We lost one of our five that grew up together. Bob was the youngest and his mother made us take him along and now I wish he could come along with us.
We do not control the time but we do control our fond memories of one of us.
