In memory of
Kevin John Hoffman
Kevin John Hoffman Aug. 10, 1955 - Feb. 21, 2019 Portland resident Kevin John Hoffman fought a courageous battle against a rare form of melanoma cancer. He passed away Feb. 21, 2019. The youngest of three children, Kevin was born Aug. 10, 1955, in Casper, Wyo., to Mildred A. (Knox) and Albert E. Hoffman of Thermopolis, Wyo. He graduated from the Hot Springs County school systems where he excelled in swimming. He loved to fish and camp throughout Wyoming with his family members. Growing up, Kevin was an altar boy at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church. In high school Kevin biked across Wyoming, which was no easy feat with the mountains and terrain. Often he regaled others with stories about interviewing seniors as part of a national study. He enjoyed learning from others and their life experiences. Kevin graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Science with Honor degree and received his Juris Doctor from the University of San Diego. He also received a Masters of Business Administration from the Oregon Executive MBA program. After law school he began his professional career at NERCO, Inc., in Portland, eventually spending three years in NERCO Minerals' Fairbanks, Alaska office then relocated to their Vancouver, Wash., office where he continued to provide finance and legal contract administration support to NERCO, Inc., NERCO Minerals Company and NERCO Oil and Gas Company. After leaving NERCO he held contract negotiating and pricing positions at Electric Lightwave, Xerox and Kapstone Paper and was able to travel to Asia and Europe on business activities. He finessed the Tokyo rail system and often gave guidance to others traveling to Japan. He was a member of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. When Kevin retired in 2014 due to his health, he volunteered serving meals to the less fortunate at the Ecumenical Ministries HIV Day Center and Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. Through these experiences he listened to others and helped provide advice. His calm approach and caring attitude made him a person sought out by others. He met the man of his life in 1989, and they spent 29 years together. They enjoyed annual road trips to Sunriver and Wyoming and vacationing in Hawaii. They were married in 2014. His family members and friends are very appreciative for the wonderful care and support provided by the Kaiser Hospice team. His husband, Michael Macnab; sister, Alice Hoffman; brother, Edward Hoffman; nieces, Erin Foote and Kristen Fuller; and a great-niece and nephew survive him. His parents and sister-in-law, Lynn Hoffman, predeceased him. Those who loved Kevin are invited to attend a memorial service at 11 a.m., Friday, March 22, 2019, at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral. Memorial gifts may be made to the OHSU Foundation, Melanoma Research, Knight Cancer Institute, 1121 S.W. Salmon Street #100, Portland, OR 97205.
