John was a man who knew he was greatly loved and blessed. He felt privileged to own and operate Hoffmeyer's Planing Mill in Sebringville and very proud to see it carried on by his son Reg after his retirement. He was also a member of the Sebringville Volunteer Fire Department for 22 years. John was an avid snowmobiler and treasured boating with his wife Sharon at Bayfield for over 25 years. Spending time with his grandchildren gave him great joy.
