Carl F. Hoffman III, known as our beloved Trip, passed away on October 15, 2023.
A long-time resident of Sewickley, Pennsylvania, Trip was predeceased by his brother John F. Hoffman, his father Carl F. Hoffman, Jr., and his step-father Vernon R. Loucks.
Trip enjoyed living in Charlotte, North Carolina for many years. He returned home to Sewickley several years ago.
He is survived by his loving family: mother Barbara L. (Bunny) Loucks, his sister Wendy Hoffman Burchfield and her husband Peter H. Burchfield IV, his nephew Peter H. Burchfield V and Peter's wife Molly and daughter Claire, his aunt and uncle Rose and John Linfoot along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Trip attended Sewickley Academy, graduated from Phillips Academy in Andover MA, and the University of North Carolina. He was a member of Christ Church at Grove Farm and a veteran of the United States Coast Guard.
Trip was an avid reader and could share good conversation with anyone. He enjoyed many topics, but especially American History and his beloved Pittsburgh Pirates, The Steelers, and Penguins.
The family would like to express sincere appreciation to the exceptional staff at UPMC - Cranberry Skilled Nursing Center and also to his close friends who devoted many hours sharing friendship and love through laughter and conversation.
Trip fought a long battle with myotonic dystrophy with such honor and grace. Never once did he ever say "why me?" - Trip's personal faith gave him a healthy anticipation that his home was with the Lord Jesus, at his passing.
A family service of The Resurrection will be officiated by The Reverend Dr. John Guest at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to R.D. Copeland Funeral Home, Sewickley
