Joseph Russell Hoffman, 34, of West Newton is survived by his brother Gary Hoffman Jr., as well as by his second family Elizabeth (Marchand) MacLeod, Jon Bradley, Linda and Ricky Sampson, Richard Murphy, Robyn and Joseph Cooke, Tanya and Arthur McCann, Jason Herrera and the late Steven MacInnis. Devoted son of the late Dayna Harrison, the late Gary Hoffman, Sr. and stepson of the late George "Skip" Powers, as well as countless friends.
He was an avid fisherman, and enjoyed music, motorcycles and hanging out. Joey loved to be surrounded by laughter and had a sense of humor all his own. Joey had a soft spot for children and animals, especially dogs. He was extremely loyal and giving. He lived and loved with no regrets. Joey would ask us not to mourn his death but to remember and celebrate his life.
