My heart is saddened to see Lee's obituary. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family, friends and relatives of Lee at this time. I know it's late. I only found out today through friends in Saylorsburg. I also remember Henry as well. My father and I visited their office in Effort a few times for insurance reasons. I also remember Mrs. Hoffman as a substitute teacher at Chestnuthill. The first name escapes me.

I apologize being late to express my condolences.
Repectfully remembered by Stan Garis.

I have lost a good friend with a love of history. Lee was one of the founding five who got the Chestnuthill Historical Society started. May it be some comfort to you that your families are in our thoughts and prayers.

Mr. Lee E. Hoffman – truly a “Knight of the Round Table.” Or in my faith a true “mensch.” I can’t say enough good things about this man. Lee and his lovely wife allowed me to use their conference room in my first year of my law practice to do Wills and POA’s. A truly honest and wonderful individual with knowledge of many things in life and business. I remember Lee telling me a story about Chestnuthill High School having only eleven students at the time of his graduation. I am so sorry to hear this news – God bless you.

He always had time for a conversation whenever you met him. He was a gentleman of the old school, well known and well thought of. He will be missed. So sorry Barbara and family.
