OFD Mourns the Loss of Michael Hoffman

The OFD mourns the loss of Michael Hoffman, the 18-year-old son of recently retired OFD Honor Guard Captain/Firefighter-Paramedic Bill Hoffman. Michael, who was planning on continuing the family tradition of being a firefighter, was fatally injured in a vehicle accident near his residence in Escondido on Monday, May 17th.

Our thoughts, prayers and support go out to the Hoffman Family.

It is the family’s wishes that in lieu of flowers, please contribute a donation in Michael’s memory to the San Diego Burn Institute. Bill’s father was a Buffalo, NY firefighter who was killed in a fire when Bill was young. So the Burn Institute has always been a personal cause for the Hoffman Family.

The OFD appreciates the incredible support from the community in this difficult time.
