The Sentinel, Carlisle, Pa
21 Jul 1896, Tue pg 3
As noted in yesterday's SENTINEL, Wm Hoffer, the butcher, was stricken suddenly yesterday afternoon and died almost instantly.
Mr Hoffer was driving on Kerr's avenue about 4 o'clock. He had been to the stock yard to buy some cattle. His son John and Lurie Hartzell were driving the cattle behind the wagon when suddenly Mr Hoffer fell over. The other men went to his assistance and took him to the office of Dr Hemminger who pronounced him dead. The body was taken to the residence of Mrs Julia Hecker, where Mr Hoffer has boarded for the last ten years. From there it will be buried.
The deceased was in his 62nd year. He was born in Carlisle and has spent almost all his life here. He was a man noted for his kind hearted charitable disposition and many of the poor people of town will miss his generosity.
Four children survive namely: James of Jersey City, John and Kieffer of Carlisle and Mrs Robert Irvin of St Paul. His wife has been dead about 15 years. George Hoffer of Carlisle and Jacob of Lancaster are brothers and Mrs John Armstrong and Miss Lottie Hoffer of Carlisle are sisters. The funeral will be held from the house on Thursday evening at five o'clock. Rev H B Wile will officiate.
