James Phillip Hoffman, 66, died October 24, 2018 after a lengthy illness.  He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. James was born June 30, 1952, in Madison, the son of Phillip and Irene Hoffman. James was a Boy Scout leader for 18 years at Saint Dennis.  He very much enjoyed the high adventure trips at Ben Delatour and in the Boundary Waters, in particular. James never had any children of his own, but he was very proud of and loved all his nieces and nephews and their children, always attending as many family events as he could.  From very little on, James was always there for them.  They are Robin and Michelle and children, Rachel and Nick; Cristina and Jason and daughter, Agatha; Mandy and Claudio and children, Aleah and Leandro; Jonathon;  Margaret and Randy and children, Grace, Matthew, and Caleb;  Paul and Chelsea and daughter, Madison;  Benjamin and Amanda and children Cullen, Amberlynn, and Mordecai;  Stephanie;  Alyssa and Matt and son, Easton;  Courtney and Tony. He is further survived by his siblings and their spouses, Linda, Ken and Deb, Len and Gail, Joan, and Kathy and Robert. A special thanks goes out to James’ good friends Don and Denny.  Your friendship was important to James, as were all your visits.
