Strix the harbinger
guards the exit gate, quizzing all
Who will pass this night?

Peter Hoffman: “Sit back, relax and put your feet to the fire.”

Peter and I had things in common and I always enjoyed talking to him. Then one day I realized he was gone - not dead, just gone, gone to Eden Prairie. This time it's really over. He was a good man. He lived full.

Peter Michael Hoffman, of Durham, N.C., passed into another life at age 71 on June 9, 2011. He lived a full life volunteering at the Piedmont Wild Life Center, tap dancing, writing music and poetry, welding iron garden trellis’, creating stained glass, ceramics, mixed media sculptures and wooden garden pergolas. He is survived by his loving wife, Suzanne; daughter and son-in- law, Tatyana and Ben Blankenship; and two grandchildren, Bailey, age 14, and Hannah, 9 years old, all of Durham and at his side as he slipped into the next life surrounded by family, friends and Dr. Brooks. etc

The news of Pete's passing to the Grand Lodge Above saddened me, yet I'm glad I was able to meet this remarkable man. Peter and Sue greatly influenced some of my life choices and helped me to discover the diversity and uniqueness of this world.
