Wade Michael Hoff, 64, passed away peacefully on August 15, 2019 in Mesa, Arizona. Wade was born in El Paso, Tx on November 29th, 1954 to parents, Richard Lee and Elvira Berger Hoff.
Wade grew up loving sports starting with Little League baseball, then High School track, football and basketball. He started singing in the choir in High School and enjoyed performing in musicals that led to a music scholarship at Casper College in Casper, Wyoming. He also majored in Business; and studied architectural drawing. Wade had diverse talents, knowledge and an entrepreneur mindset that he used to start his own residential and commercial security business, A Allstate Security. He worked very hard to serve his customers, often after hours and without charging for small service calls. He took personal interest in the lives of everyone he met and invested in relationships that resulted in a business based on trust and respect. Wade retired from his successful career as a small business owner in 2015 after 25 years. Together as a family, Wade enjoyed countless hours of memorable moments and most especially creating priceless memories as Grandpapa.

In addition to his love for music, Wade’s favorite hobbies included; playing the guitar, hiking, camping, road biking, golfing, watching major league baseball, reading and projects…..he loved his work bench and fixing ‘all the things’ as Cindy would say!
