DR. DeWAYNE HOFER
Dr. DeWayne Dale Hofer, age 76, of Prescott, Ariz., passed away on May 12, 2013.
He is predeceased by his father, Michael P. Hofer.
DeWayne is survived by his loving wife Barbara of 50 years. They were married in Chicago, Ill., on Dec. 1, 1962.
DeWayne is fondly remembered by mother Mary of Clive, Iowa; sister, Joan (Tom) Nielsen of Scottsdale, Ariz.; sister, Darleen (Cal) Schwandt of Clive, Iowa; son, Barry (Anne) of Eden Prairie, Minn.; son, Scott of Kansas City, Mo.; grandsons, Andrew, Thomas and Mark; and other friends and family.
DeWayne was born in Bridgewater, S.D., in 1936. He graduated from Bridgewater High School in 1954 and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in pre-med from Dakota Wesleyan University in 1958; a B.S.M.D. from the University of South Dakota in 1960 and a doctor of medicine from Northwestern University in 1962.
After serving his country in the United States Air Force, DeWayne enjoyed a successful medical career in Radiology.
One of DeWayne's passions was serving his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through his church. He was eternally grateful for the blessings bestowed upon him and enjoyed a life of helping those less fortunate. Another passion was his family. There was no greater joy than supporting his sons, and more recently his grandsons, in all of their chosen pursuits.
DeWayne loved the outdoors. Raised on a farm in rural South Dakota, he was always drawn to nature, whether it was landscaping at his longtime home in Concordia, Kan., or the natural scenery in his retirement home of Prescott, Ariz. He and Barbara enjoyed traveling and were fortunate to have seen much of the world.
