The date is now set for the memorial service honoring Michael Hoffman, the West Seattle business owner and community supporter gone too soon at just 47. Len Burton-Hardin of Howden-Kennedy Funeral Home says the memorial will be at noon Saturday, April 5th, at the Alki Masonic Center (40th/Edmunds). We also are told that donations in Mr. Hoffman’s memory can be made to Furry Faces Foundation and Pencil Me In For Kids, both of which recall him as an avid supporter. In addition to what we mentioned in our first report on his sudden death a week and a half ago – owning Liberty Bell Print and Design, and founding/organizing the annual West Seattle Car Show – he was part of many other community projects, as noted by some of the dozens of friends and colleagues who shared memories here.


  1. Thanks for the update…

  2. What a special blessing he was to so many. We have been wondering if the business will continue as Michael took care of us in that regard. Thanks.

  3. Make someone (anyone) happy today. Cause them to smile. Do something nice. Reach out your hand. You may never have the privilege to do so again.

  5. Michael was a flat out wonderful guy to work with…he cared so much for West Seattle and especially the Junction…it was an honor to severe with him on the Junction Board for many years. He was always there to help Rotary. And for being a Duck, he was a pretty nice guy!
