Honoring Those Who Have Gone Before Us

The Memorial Page for Those Who Have Gone Before Us is now being actively worked on. We are compiling a list of known passings from prior club records, but we could sure use your help.

The records of our former fen’s departures are spotty in some cases and any details you want to provide would be valued. Please contact us any information you have on the birthdates, place and date of passing and any circumstances you would like to include. Thank you all for your help!

Dennis Fischer posted on Friday, August 26th: “Friends of Eric Hoffman, I have some bad news for you. There was a fire recently at Eric’s house and he was caught in it. He’s currently in the ICU of a hospital and is not expected to survive. He will be missed by his many friends, Whovians, Svengoolians, convention-goers, and others who knew him through his many kindnesses.”

He then posted on Saturday, August 27th: “Eric L. Hoffman passed away at 7:45 a.m. today. He is survived by a brother.”

Eric Hoffman joined LASFS on July 15, 1975.

"Eric was a magnificent nerd, with an extensive knowledge of fantastic films of the past. He could be annoying and ingratiating, but he was generous and kind as well. I considered him a friend as well as a valuable resource I always enjoyed chatting with him at Loscon. He knew his film history and was able to track down all sorts of wonderful odds and ends. I will miss him and his enthusiasm."
