Ruben Hoffmann


Ruben Arthur Hoffmann was born on July the 11th of 1926, and passed away on March the 21st of 2023. Ruben lived what many would call an unassuming life in that he was not a figure head, nor did he stand out to those that did not know him. What Ruben did was to serve two distinguished careers. One in the Navy where he would be Honorably discharged as a Seaman First Class after serving in both World War II, and later in the Korean War.

His commitment to duty and service did not end there. When discharged from the Navy he applied for the Minnesota State Highway Patrol where he served in the capacity as a Lieutenant of field station Duluth, ending his 25 plus years of service. Later Ruben became involved in the Lion’s Club in Lindstrom Minnesota and was active in the community. He also then further branched out to become a member of the food shelf volunteers of Chisago City where he served for many years in helping to ensure the less fortunate were helped.

Ruben is survived by close family and friends; his son Glen P. Hoffmann and his wife Wanda J. Hoffmann; Ruben’s granddaughter Katherine L. Abou-Zeid and her husband Michael and lastly Gregory Ruben Hoffmann. Other honorable friends that contributed to the long and prosperous life of Ruben were his neighbors Jeff Biel and his fiancée, Seth and Katie Alsaker and Jan Rutledge all of Lindstrom, Minnesota. Ruben carried with him his great love of the church and God, and many times said that God had provided him with his faith and a long and well deserved life. Rest in Peace Father.

Funeral service for Ruben will be held 11 AM, Friday, April 7, 2023 at Grandstrand Funeral Home Lindstrom, MN. Visitation one hour prior. Burial to follow at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN. Condolences can be expressed online at www.grandstrand fh.com.
