Robert "Bob" Hoffmann Obituary

We are sad to announce the death of Robert "Bob" Hoffmann of Grafton, WI at the age of 82 on November 15, 2023, after a brief illness.   Born to Martin and Mary Hoffmann in Chicago, IL on October 27, 1941.  He spent most of his school-age years, along with his two sisters Lee and Jackie, in Fox River Grove, IL.  Survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Ann, and children: Bryan Vanderwarker (Tina), Keith Vanderwarker, Tracy Neal (Steven), and Allen Gerrard (Jennie).  He was a cherished grandfather to William "Will", Sophie, Molly, West, and Ryan.

With an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for antiques, which began at a young age, he would proudly sell his treasured items on a card table in his yard instead of the typical lemonade stand. He was quick-witted, always ready with a joke or an entertaining story to share with his family and friends.  His charismatic and fun-loving personality saw him thriving in his high school years, where he was known as ‘a Corvette driving, letterman jacket-wearing jock’.

After graduation, Bob moved to Chicago.  He enjoyed living in a historic brownstone and became Co-owner of Frank’s Pizzeria.  Ever looking towards new career challenges, Bob started a successful sales career as well as launching a graphic design business.  Upon realizing a lifelong dream to move to Colorado, he expanded his graphic design venture by publishing a luxury magazine called “Crème de la Crème”, focusing on life in Boulder, CO.  Leaving Colorado and relocating to Wisconsin, Bob developed an affinity for brats, enjoyed bar dice games, and found a new favorite vacation spot in Door County.  Although these newfound joys in Wisconsin never surpassed his love of Colorado and the mountains.  After retiring he resurrected his love of antiques, becoming an antique dealer in beautiful historic Cedarburg.

As per Bob’s request, no funeral service will be held.
