January 1, 1932 — September 30, 2023

City Island, NY

Francis J. Hoffman of City Island, NY passed away on Saturday, September 30, 2023. He was 91 years old. He was born in the house he grew up in to his parents Kathleen and John Hoffman. He attended St Mary Star of the Sea grammar school and graduated from Evander Childs High School. He went to work as a draftsman for Con Edison where he worked for over 40 years, retiring as a Design Engineer supervisor.

An avid boater, he spent his entire life on City Island excluding the three years he spent in the Navy during the Korean War. In 1960, he married Sally and they raised 3 children.  After Sally’s death, he married Barbara who shared his love of boating and introduced him to international travel.  

In his 50s, he learned to sail and became a member of the City Island Yacht Club where he became Commodore. He was a vibrant, active part of many organizations, most notably The St Vincent DePaul Society, the Bronx Democratic Club and the American Legion. Always with a smile on his face, he greeted everyone on his walks, with a soft spot for dogs.
