William Isaac (Bill) Hoffman, 55

William Isaac (Bill) Hoffman, age 55, of Hendersonville, NC passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 18, surrounded by his loved ones.

Bill was blessed with a brilliant engineering mind; he graduated from UNM in Mechanical Engineering and held patents in engineering processes. His thirst for knowledge--math, science, history and sports—was shared with others enlivening conversations with his quick-witted humor and trivia. Bill moved to Hendersonville, NC from Albuquerque, NM in 1999 and held engineering and managerial positions at Intel, Selee, Crane Resistoflex, and BorgWarner.

Bill was a loving husband, father, son, and brother. He was an avid Minnesota Vikings fan since the age of 7, enjoyed F1 car racing and woodworking. He leaves behind many friends who cherished him. It was important to Bill that those around him grow to be the best they could be and enjoyed mentoring them along their journey.

Bill is survived by his bride of 18 years, Dianna Hoffman; son Evan (Brittany Cutshall) Hoffman; daughter Stephanie Hoffman; stepdaughter Rachael Noa; granddaughters Ani Noa and Aurora Noa; mother Cecilia Hoffman; sister Lisa (Erik) Dunkle and their three children, Nikki, Kyrsten, and Kevin; brother Jamie Hoffman; mother-in-law Gloria Reedy; brothers-in-law Christian (Marya) Reedy and Charles (Cindy) Reedy; sisters-in-law Shirley (Doug) Mitchell and Agatha (Vaughn) Fulton. Bill is preceded in death by his father, Joseph W. Hoffman.
