Alvin James Hoff, 82, Minot, passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, December 15, 2012.
Alvin was born August 04, 1930, to Albert and Mary (Elrod) in Manitoba, Canada. He was raised and educated in Manitoba. He received his GED later in his life.
Alvin joined the US Air Force and served from August 1951 to August 1955. Following his honorable discharge, he returned to North Dakota and worked for the Civil Service in heating and ventilation maintenance until his retirement in 1985.
Alvin lived in Fortuna, ND from 1965 until relocating to Minot in 2003.
He was once married to Karon Rauk. This union was blessed with four children, Jim, Butch, Kari and Carmen. Alvin loved being a father. The only thing he loved more than being a father, was being a grandfather, living each day for his grandchildren.
Alvin enjoyed fishing, gardening and doing different types of yard work. He loved to read, especially to his grandchildren, who will carry his legacy.
