Hoffman III, age 54, our loved family member and friend made his glorious arrival in Heaven on Monday, January 6, 2014 after a courageous battle with a GBM-4 brain tumor, sporting a full head of hair and a smile on his face. He was surrounded by family and friends as he peacefully made his serene transition. Born July 6, 1959 in Green, he was the son of John F. and Arlene (Oplinger) Hoffman II; he graduated from Green High School and the University of Akron where he received a degree in Marketing. While in college, he was a proud member of Lambda Chi Alpha. He began his career at InfoCision and went on to become the president of Hoffman Marketing Group. He was a member of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Akron. He also enjoyed the comradery of his Monday night golf league. Besides his parents, survivors include his devoted wife of 26 years, Nina (Moskos) whom he married on September 7, 1987; son, John F. Hoffman IV; and daughter, Gabrielle who cared for him daily with love and compassion during his 9 month illness; brothers, Dirk and David; sisters, Kim (Marty) Rogers and Tanya Seibel; numerous other relatives and good friends including Jeff Evans and Paul Noonan. Friends will be received at the Billow FALLS Chapel, 1907 23rd St., Cuyahoga Falls, on Thursday from 4 to 7 P.M. with a Trisagion service at 6 P.M. Services will be held on Friday, January 10, 2014 at 11 A.M. at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, 129 S. Union St., Akron, 44304. Burial will take place at the Chestnut Hill Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church. Everyone who knew John has a great story to tell and to remember. He was full of laughter and had a real zest for life. Even though he was faithful to God, he had the opportunity during the last 9 months of his life to grow closer to the Lord Jesus Christ, and to see how the many people in his life truly loved and cared about him. He was also able to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. John will be greatly missed by those who loved him and were lucky enough to share their lives with him. May his memory be eternal!
