Left to mourn are the widow, Mrs. Ella Hoffman; a sister, Mrs. Carrie E. Spoon of Pacific Grove; two sons, Gordon S. of San Jose and Lloyd D. Hoffman of Buntingville; four daughters, Mrs. Gladys DeForrest of Susanville, Mrs. Rosetta Allison of Buntingville, Mrs. Beatrice Hill of Buntingville, Mrs. Vivian Stiles of Susanville, 11 grandchildren, and many friends as there were acquaintances of Floyd B.
