Celebrating the life of John E. Hof
Thank you for signing John E. Hof's Guestbook
Aunt Pat and the whole Hof clan....Maggie and I were terribly saddened to hear about Uncle John's passing. We had just been talking about him a few weeks ago. We were both very much fond of him and always enjoyed his visits up to South Bend when we were kids. His infectious smile, jokes, generosity, and just general kindness are things that both Maggie and I remember of him. Needless to say we will miss him, as all who knew him will. Our deepest thoughts and condolences are with you all. God bless.

Pat and family: We have lost one of the truly nice people in this world. He always had jokes and stories to entertain us at break when we worked together at Bostitch Textron and then Stanley Bostitch. He is the only person at Bostitch that continued to call me on a regular basis after I left Bostitch at the end of 1989. In keeping, John always had an update on someone at Bostitch along with a good joke or story. I will miss him. He was one of the nicest people I have had the privilege to know. You have Sandy and my deepest sympathy.
