Samuel Michael Hofer

Passed on August 5, 2019

December 3, 1940 – August 5, 2019 It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Sam Hofer of Warren, MB at the age of 78. Left to mourn is his beautiful wife Edith; son Chris (Paula) and grandchildren Taylor (Ty), Amy (Connor) and Josh. Sam was also a proud great grandpa to Levi and Harper. Sam also made room in his big heart to welcome and love the three newest grandkids, Thalissa, Natalia and Camron. Sam also had a large family on Edith’s side. Russ† (Elenor†), Doreen† (Gordon†), Doug† (Barb†), Annie (Arnold†), Laura (Bud†), Ruby (Glen), Billy† (Flo†), Pat (Bob) and Jim (Gloria). Sam was born in Bai St. Paul, Manitoba December 3rd, 1940 to Michael and Kathrina Hofer†, and had 12 brothers and sisters. Katie (Paul), Michael (Elizabeth†), Sarah (David), Rebecca† (Jonty), Mary (Benjamin†), Jacob, John (Suzie), David† (Maryanne), Levi (Maria), Joseph, Peter (Dorothy) and Lisa. Sam met the love of his life Edith in the late 60’s and wed on May 15, 1971. The two of them had a bond like no other. Sam became a stepdad to Edith’s daughter Charlene†, and soon there after welcomed their beautiful son Chris. Sam and Edith moved to Warren in 1976 and have made that their home ever since. Sam had a career as a bus driver with Grey Hound. He managed to retire his 30th year in 1997 with an impeccable driving record. Many miles with many friendships made along the way. Sam also had a love for his Bobcat. He owned and operated Sam’s Bobcat Services for over 18 years. Although Sam sold his business years ago, whenever Sammy saw one in operation, he was always quick to jump in and finish the job. Sam was a jack of all trades. A plumber, carpenter, electrician, roofer, mechanic and gardener. Whatever needed fixing, Sam was always there to lend a hand. His expertise and knowledge were always welcomed and will be greatly missed. Sam and Edith also had a love for music. Their guitar picking, mandolin playing, toe tapping fiddling music will be missed by many. Countless friendships were made listening to Sam and Edith sing and harmonize. Even when Sam was battling cancer, the love of his family and friends along with the unwavering support of his community, helped him through some of his toughest days. Sam’s boisterous laugh, heart-warming bear hugs and even his stubborn ways will be greatly missed. We would like to thank the Selkirk RCMP, paramedics and all first responders. Forever in our Hearts A celebration of life will be held Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the Stonewall Legion in Stonewall, Manitoba.
