Charles Hoffman, passed away on Wed. Feb. 21, 2018. He was born Jan. 16, 1975, in Colorado Springs, CO to Stephen and Lisa Hoffman. Charlie grew up playing baseball and youth football in Napa. Charlie’s infectious smile and demeanor gained him popularity, and many lifelong friends at Vintage High School where he graduated in 1994. Charlie worked in the food service industry; beginning at the Napa Food Center and eventually finding his niche at Browns Valley Market. He spent years helping customers and ended as manager of the Deli Department. His last job was at World Market in Napa where he made many more friends amongst employees and customers.
Charles had an on-going battle with alcoholism. He was well known and loved in the AA Fellowship in Napa and he loved serving there. He also took classes at Napa Community College to understand his disease. His biggest regret was not being able to be fully present for his children because of his disease.
Charles is survived by his former partner, Kimberly Brown, and their son, Liam (7); His former wife, Amy Templeton Hoffman, and their two beautiful daughters Kylie (19) and Emily (14). His grandfather, Lawrence Scott, parents Stephen and Elizabeth Hoffman, also Loren and Lisa Haas.
