Grant L. Hoffman

December 12, 1942 — August 16, 2021

Grant Leigh Hoffman, age 78, passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, August 16, 2021. Sonny grew up in Appleton, WI where he would proudly tell you about his years as a paperboy and time managing the Clark station. After graduating high school, he joined the Navy and spent 4 years during the Vietnam War on the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown CVS10. Grant was also in the Appleton Navy Reserves and a member of the American Legion, Post 38 Appleton. Grant was a proud veteran and had many stories he shared with everyone he met. While on the ship he ran the print shop which led to an early career managing the print shop at SC Shannon Company in Appleton. Grant also owned many rental properties throughout his life. In 1968 he married Carole Werner. Together they raised 4 children. Grant & Carole spent many of their “retirement years” travelling the state with Grant selling cheese, sausage, pickles and his Veteran Hats, along with Carole selling her crafts and antiques. The fair & flea market circuits will miss him very much.
