Lyndon Gordon Hoffman (Buzz) was born in Chicago, Ill on November 5th, 1943 with his twin sister Linda to Gordon and Pauline Hoffman.
Later on Gordon and Pauline moved their family to Butler, MO. Buzz was one of four children. In 1961 he enrolled in the Air Force and served four years. When he got out of the Air Force he moved back to Butler.
On March 16, 1968 he was united in marriage to Vivian. They had three boys. In 1977 they moved their family to Blue Springs, MO. He retired from Yellow Freight where he worked for 30 years.
Buzz loved to coach his boy’s football and baseball teams. He also enjoyed watching his boys race bikes in BMX and taking them out on the boat and going fishing. He loved taking his grandkids to fun places like state parks, campgrounds, Disney World, water parks, etc. Buzz never met a stranger he couldn’t talk with. He loved it when all the family could get together. He treated his boy’s friends as one of his own. He was a very giving person and would give you his shirt off his back if you needed it.
