Harvey Howard Hoffman

Harvey Howard Hoffman, 76, peacefully went to be with the Lord Jan. 26, 2020, in Orogrande, N.M. He was born Feb. 28, 1943, in Eatonville, Wash., to Frank Paul and Marie Gladys Hoffman.

Through a second marriage, Harvey gained three stepchildren. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge and a past Master of the Mount Olympus Lodge 298 in Forks, Wash. Harvey loved storytelling, a passionate exchange while discussing national politics and spending time in the Pacific Northwest and New Mexico with dear friends and family.

He is survived by his children, Harvey D. (Lorelei) Hoffman of Columbia, S.C., Darin A.M.

Harvey was preceded in death by his parents, Frank Paul and Marie Gladys Hoffman of Aberdeen, Wash.; and sister, Katherine Wambolt of Yuma, Ariz.

A celebration of life for Harvey will be held at a future date. Should friends desire, contributions may be made to The Shriners Hospital for Children in the name of Harvey.

The Hoffman family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home.
