Obituary for Verge Michael Hoffman

Verge Michael Hoffman (Mike), was born on February 29, 1944 in Wayne, Michigan to Cora (Denton) and Verge Hoffman. He grew up in Taylor, Michigan. Mike graduated from Michigan State University and then served in the Vietnam War, where he was a decorated Army officer assigned to the MACV unit. He later received his MBA from Loyola University. He worked in the commercial real estate business.

Mike married Gail Montague on September 2, 1971. To this union three children were born. Mike loved his family, his country, and Michigan State football, not necessarily in that order.

He was an avid reader, a history buff, and enjoyed traveling with his kids and wife, and reading every bit of historical information at every landmark aloud to his family. He had a heart of gold and a sense of humor that kept us all laughing.

He is survived by his extremely loving and supportive wife Gail, daughter Jessica (Ryan) Iverson, sons Michael (Natalie) Hoffman and Matthew (Mandi) Hoffman, grandchildren Elizabeth and Luke Iverson, Matthew and William Hoffman, and Carolina and Jameson Hoffman, a sister Sylvia Kloc, his brother-in-law, Jim (Helen) Montague and his sister-in-law Pam Montague. his best friend of 55 years, Joe Wisniewski, and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his brother Bill Hoffman, and his sister Sandra Lentz, as well as his brothers-in-law, Carl Kloc and Jerry Lentz, a niece Paula Paull, and a nephew Steven Kloc.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Neurology MS Research Fund c/o Anthony T Reder, MD; Department of Neurology-University of Chicago, MC-2030; 5841 S Maryland Ave, Chicago, IL 60637.

The family would like to thank his daughter-in-law Natalie for caring for him in his final days.

Additionally, they would like to remind you to cheer for Michigan State this football season!
