Dr. Hoff, affectionately called Got-Got, was born August 3, 1934, in Wishek, North Dakota. He graduated from James McConnell High School in San Francisco, CA before joining his father and brother in the Naval Shipyard’s Apprentice Training Program, first as a Rigger and then as an Electronics Mechanic in 1951. In 1955 He joined the Air Force and flew various aircraft for almost 13 years and earned multiple Air Medals for Meritorious Service in Vietnam. In November of 1956 he married the love of his life, Hazel Williams, whom he met at Graham AFB, Marianna, FL, while playing ping-pong. They had 4 children while he served. Being a man of many facets, always needing to learn and wanting to help others, he went to Medical School at the University of Miami following his honorable discharge from the Air Force. Upon graduating from Medical School, he relocated the family to Marianna, FL in 1976, where he knew physicians were in need and established his practice. He opened the Family Health Center in 1982 and being interested in his patient’s total health, he followed up by opening the Fitness Center behind his office, located on Highway 90 East of Marianna. He practiced medicine for 26 years in Jackson County, FL. Upon retiring from Medicine, he went into the oil industry, going into business with his oldest son. He continued in the oil business until 2019.
