Cecil LeRoy Hoffman

February 1, 1938 - May 28, 2024

Cecil LeRoy Hoffman was born in Thermopolis, WY, was one of seven children.

Cecil’s last hours on this Earth was that of a patriot. Cecil had mailed his voter ballot minutes before collapsing of a heart attack on the morning of May 28th. Cecil believed in the power of voting, and he believed very much in the strength of one person.

Cecil loved the outdoors and went fishing often every year. He loved long winding car trips all over the country just to see what was there; And he loved to spin a good tale while doing both of those! Cecil had a great sense of humor and always had an entertaining story to share! Cecil’s hard work can be seen all over this area as he laid pipe for SW Gas, built the original Ormsby House, then rebuilding Harvey’s after the 1980 bombing.

Cecil was a proud member, of 50 years of the Laborers Local #169, he worked his way up to become Field Agent, Vice President, then President of Laborers Local #169 for 28 years. Cecil believed in unions because they helped the working man get equal pay and fair working conditions. Cecil always had an “open door” where members could come talk to him. The union accepted everyone regardless of education, race, religion or gender, so people could make a decent living.

Cecil proudly served in the US Navy as a teenager. Family was very important to Cecil, and he loved being a grandpa and great grandpa. However, he loved Virginia his ‘angel’ of 54 years the most. He was never the same after she passed.

Cecil is preceded in death by his wife, Virginia Hoffman and son Brian Hoffman. Cecil is survived by his son Brad Hoffman, daughter Bonnie Preston, granddaughter Jessica Preston, granddaughter Katelynn (Christopher) Master’s and great grandchildren Audrey and Andrew.
