John Herman Hoffnagle, Jr.

July 3, 1927November 17, 2021

Veteran Merchant Marine John Hoffnagle, Jr.’s, love of life, friends and family didn’t come to an end with his peaceful passing on Nov. 17th, 2021 at age 94 but is now carried on by those who knew and loved him.

John was a wonderful friend and neighbor always there to lend a hand in a time of need who loved the simple pleasures in life like spending time tending to his beautiful yard and roses with his beloved dog Hooch.

At his core John was a family man who loved his late wife Ruth with all of his heart and was so proud of the incredible people his son John, III and daughter Joni grew to be.

John is forever remembered in the hearts of all his life touched but none so much as the family members he leaves behind his daughter Joni, his three grand children and five great grandchildren. He was our rock. For the good times.

The family will have a private service.


  • All Services Are Private.


John Herman Hoffnagle, Jr.

I worked with John at TSC for 15 years. He was one of the first hired in 2002 when the store opened and left about the time I left in 2017. I enjoyed the conversations we had at our breaks or just working on the floor. A knowledgeble man that loved his family and missed Ruth. My prayers for Joni and his grandchildren. John was special.
