It is with sadness to announce the passing of John William Hoff on October 22,2018. John passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family and friends in Campbell River. John was born June 19, 1936 in Saskatchewan. John worked for BC Hydro at the John Hart Generating Station for many years and was proud of his over 40 years of service with BC Hydro both in Campbell River and Prince Rupert. John in his retirement years became an avid square dancer and ballroom dancer, he enjoyed and looked forward too many dances with his dance partner Frances. John was predeceased by his wife Carol in 1997 and his eldest son Alan in 1982.
He is survived by his son Terry and daughter-In law Kim, grandsons Nathan and Brendan, his sister-in-law Judy and her husband Gene Sklapsky, as well as many nieces and nephews. John will be missed by the many friends, co-workers, dancers that he was so fond of. John very much enjoyed watching his grandsons participate in various sporting events.
The family would like to pay special thanks to his longtime Dr. James Proctor and the many Nurses at the Campbell River Hospital who cared for John. We would also like to thank the staff at Berwick By the Sea, where John called home over the last few years.
There will a celebration of John’s life to be announced at a later date.
