Pacific Grove Tribune, CA Feb 2, 1934 p1
Last Rites Held for M. Hoffman
Resident of City For 30 Years Dies After Long Illness
Funeral services for the late Marcus William Hoffman, who succumbed to long illness Friday morning at his home, 624 Forest avenue, Pacific Grove, were conducted by the Rev. T.J. Barkle Monday at 3:00 o’clock at Paul’s mortuary chapel. Interment was in El Carmelo cemetery. Coming to the Grove in 1907 from Lassen county, where he had been a farmer, Mr. Hoffman had resided here ever since. He engaged in the automobile business here, having opened the first Ford agency on the Monterey Peninsula in 1910. At first Mr. Hoffman did the business of Ford Motors from his home, then he built a small garage at the rear of the house which was gradually enlarged to take care of increased business. He retired because of ill health in 1916 and had been suffering until the time of his death. Surviving him are his widow, Mrs. Mary Hoffman; a son, Harold, of Pacific Grove; a sister, Mrs. Carrie Spoon of Pacific Grove; a brother, Floyd Hoffman of Buntingville, California; and a grandson, Paul William Hoffman of Pacific Grove. The deceased was 88 years old at the time of his death and he was a native of Lassen county. Pallbearers were all old time Lassen friends of Mr. Hoffman and included: Frank Hansen, Chester Toombs, Colin Whitehead, John Ramsey, Mirth Conger and Curtis Winslow.
