Life Ends For Valley Pioneer

Floyd Hoffman Answers Final Summons At Buntingville Home

After an illness of several months, Floyd B. Hoffman, 76, passed away at his home in Buntingville Saturday morning, near the spot where he was born August 4, 1863. With the exception of a few years spent in Pacific Grove, his entire life was spent in Honey Lake Valley, within a quarter of a mile of birthplace. Always a fine man and farseeing, he readily identified himself with substantial developments and played no small part in the upbuilding of his community.

He withheld support from the Eagle Lake irrigation system and the experience of the past 20 years has shown the wisdom of his attitude. He built the Buntingville telephone system 30 years ago and has maintained it through all the years, good and bad, providing one of the great conveniences for his fellow ranchers, ofttimes and for long periods the consciousness of serving his friends throughout the valley being his only reward.

Left to mourn are the widow, Mrs. Ella Hoffman; a sister, Mrs. Carrie E. Spoon of Pacific Grove; two sons, Gordon S. of San Jose and Lloyd D. Hoffman of Buntingville; four daughters, Mrs. Gladys DeForrest of Susanville, Mrs. Rosetta Allison of Buntingville, Mrs. Beatrice Hill of Buntingville, Mrs. Vivian Stiles of Susanville, 11 grandchildren, and many friends as there were acquaintances of Floyd B. Hoffman.

Funeral services were held Monday in the Methodist Church in Susanville with the Reverend R.G. Green, E.R. Gomes, and P.O. Knudson in charge. The deceased was buried in the Janesville Cemetery. Pall Bearers were: J.W. Dakin, C.E. Dakin, Louis Drotis, Ralph King, J.P. Barham and J.G. Stiles.
