At age 14, he moved with his family to Gladstone, NM where he lived until 1932, when the family decided to move to Farley, NM, just a few miles away. The railroad was coming in and it was the place to be. It was in Farley that he met and married Agnes Fielden. They married in 1941 and have had a blessed 68 years together.
Together they had five children, Alrene Weaver, Betty Albiston, Ruth Silva and husband Gary; Doug Hoffman and wife Helen; Sid Hoffman and wife Jeanine.
He also leaves behind 10 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and his first great-great-grandchild is due any day. Also he is survived by one sister, Delena Messick and one brother Rollie Hoffman and wife Trish as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
In 1953, Albert moved his family to California, living in Bakersfield for three years, then, after beginning in a job at Edwards Air Force Base in civil service he moved his family to Lancaster, CA. He was medically retired after a car accident in 1964. Between 1964 and 2005, he and his wife, Agnes, lived in Bakersfield for 19 years, then Oakhurst, CA for 15 years, Winslow, AZ for a year and back to Lancaster. They moved to Ridgecrest, CA in 2005, always moving to be near family.
He was preceded in death by his parents Henry Vance Hoffman and Pearl Irene Hoffman; sisters Mae Florence Hoffman and Neva Carson; as well as numerous sisters and brothers-in-law; one niece and two nephews.
Albert was a very quiet man, always putting his family first and always loyal to family and friends. He loved history, especially Old West history and read every Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour books he could find. As a child he loved Tom Mix movies and tried to teach his horse (Old Blue) the same tricks as he saw Tom Mix's horse do in the movies.
