Matt Hoffman, DS1 has passed on to the afterlife

Postby jrlorig on Thu Nov 10, 2011 7:32 pm

Matt was overcome by colon cancer a couple of years ago.

I bumped into Matt when we both worked for Univac/Sperry/Unisys through the 80's and early 90's. He was the day-side LPO at Damneck in the 1979 timeframe. We got talking about our Navy days over the years at Unisys and discovered that had I accepted my shore duty orders to Damneck instead of getting out, I would have been the night-side LPO at the same time he was there because he made rank before I did.
