Eugene Robert Hoffman, Jr., 71, of Fishers, IN passed away, Sunday, October 31, 2021. He was born January 31,1950 in Indianapolis, IN son of Eugene Robert Hoffman, Sr., and Madeline (Draga) Hoffman.
Gene was a dedicated family man. He was a loving and devoted husband to his wife Kathy, as they celebrated more than 40 years of marriage together. Most notably, Gene championed his wife through her ongoing battles against cancer. His enduring love for Kathy is one to be remembered and admired always.
As a proud father, Gene was supportive of his three sons, as was Kathy, and together they were their biggest fans - traveling locally and across the country to attend their games. Gene was also a proud grandfather to his six grandchildren, and cherished spending time with them and taking them to breakfast whenever opportunity allowed.
As extended members of the Hoffman family, Gene rescued, loved, and cared for his Great Danes, Tank, Jessie, and Gunner. Gene had a lifelong passion for luxury cars, motorcycles, and completed multiple cross-country motorcycle rides with friends. An Indianapolis native and devoted race fan, it was a yearly tradition to attend the infamous race party, have a team in the Calcutta, and make the annual pilgrimage to be in the stands for the Indy 500.
In addition to his parents, Eugene was preceded in death by his wife, Kathryn C. Hoffman in 2018; and siblings, Chuck Hoffman and Gina Kendall.
Survivors include his sons, David (Jeanine) Hoffman, Nicholas (Cicely) Hoffman, and Alex (Molly) Hoffman; grandchildren, Max Hoffman, Cooper Hoffman, Adelynn Hoffman, Nash Hoffman, Kate Hoffman and Eliza Hoffman; sister, Jana Sue (Chris) Shimer; and his beloved dog, Gunner.
A celebration of Gene’s life will be held at a later date. For further details, please communicate with Gene’s family.
