Condolences – March 2020

To the friends and family of Ben Hoffman, who died in December.

Ben Hoffman farmed and managed his forest in Bradford, Maine. MOFGA was deeply saddened to learn of his passing in December 2019. Ben had a Ph.D. in forestry from Yale, worked in government and private industry, taught forest management and timber harvesting at the University of Maine and spent 11 years in British Columbia and Alaska as a volunteer teaching forest technology for Covenant Life College – and had many other interests and accomplishments. He leaves behind his wife of 67 years, Marjorie, of Bradford, and three grown children and their families.
