Read more about the life story of Wolfgang and share your memory.
Wolfgang G. Hoffmann, age 91, passed away peacefully Wednesday August 30, 2023 at Morton Hospital with his beloved wife of 61 years by his side. Born in Schweidnitz, Germany, he was the son of the late Margarete and Paul Hoffmann and husband of Gerda (Sparrer) Hoffmann.
Wolfgang grew up in Eastern Germany, went to West Germany, then travelled the world for several years working on merchant ships. In 1957, he immigrated to Canada. Three years later, he came to Boston, where he met his wife, and became a U.S. naturalized citizen.
Wolfgang was an ornamental ironworker and a lifelong member of the Iron Workers Union. Because he enjoyed being his own boss, he established ICR Doors, Inc. in the 1970’s which he operated until his retirement in 1996.
His hobbies included ballroom dancing, tennis, reading, bike riding, weight lifting, rollerblading, and travelling. He began studying karate later in life and received his black belt in 2014 at the age of 79.
Since moving to Raynham in 1963, one of his favorite things to do every summer was taking his family to Horseneck Beach.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by his sister Renate Dorn (husband Dieter), son Gunther (wife Pamela), and daughter Vera (partner Greg); grandchildren Ryland, Eric, Morgan, Margo, Mallory, Kristen, Emmalyn and Griffin; great grandson Asher.
A Service and Celebration of Life for Wolfgang will take place at 3:00pm on Sunday, September 10th at the First Congregational Church of Raynham, 785 South Main St.
He will be greatly missed.
