Hofman, Leonard “Lee” Ernest, 88, a long-time resident of Atlantic Highlands, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Friday, March 22, 2019. He was born in Brooklyn, NY and moved to the area in 1932. He graduated from the Atlantic Highlands High School in 1948 then served four years in the US Navy Submarine Service as a quartermaster on the USS Odax and the USS Grenadier. In 1952 he married the love of his life, Janet Barker Hofman and worked for the New Jersey Bell Telephone Company until he retired in 1992. Lee was a member of the AH United Methodist Church serving as a Sunday School Superintendent, teacher and sexton. From 1960 to 1979 Lee was the Skipper of the Atlantic Highlands Sea Scouts on the SES #6 Joshua Barney, teaching many young people to respect the sea, how to sail, work on boats and read nautical charts. He was recently recognized as one of the longest members of the AH Lions Club and served twice as president, became famous for his Mickey Mouse pancakes at numerous pancake breakfasts, served as a funnel cake chef at many Fireman’s Fairs and volunteered for the AACC Food Pantry. Lee was always quick with a joke, enjoyed gatherings with his family and friends, cruising, dancing, jigsaw puzzles and loved the sea. Lee is predeceased by his parents, Leonard Dirk Hofman and Sylvia Fox Hofman and his brother Ronald Hofman, and is survived by his wife of 66 years, Janet, seven children; Holly (Steve) Niphakis, Richard (Bridget) Hofman, Cindy Bruntz, Sally (Dan) Qualman, Eric Hofman, Penny (Tim Paddack) Morris and Nancy (Kerry) Dillon. Also surviving are 17 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Lee was an amazing source of knowledge, wisdom and strength and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Continue his legacy and brighten someone’s day with a joke. Visitation will be held on Friday, March 29, from 2pm to 4pm and 6pm to 9pm at the United Methodist Church, Third & Garfield Ave, Atlantic Highlands. A funeral service is scheduled for Saturday, March 30 at 11am at the church; burial will be privately held at a later date. In lieu of flowers please consider a contribution to the AACC Food Pantry, 96 Third Ave, Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716. Condolences can be shared at

Mrs Hofman and Family, I just read of Mr. Hofmans passing and wish for you all peace of the Lord in this trying time. It was a little over a year ago that we lost my father, so I know a little of what you are going through. I remember Mr. Hofman when I was in Sea Scouts and the incredible amount of patience he had with a petulant teenager. I remember his generousity on occasions when I would spend time at your home with Dick. I remember his sense of humor. All these memories of our childhood come rushing back when I think of the two great men we lost these last two years. The area we lived in was full of wonderful times playing in the yard, swimming in pools and just being kids. I will keep you all in my prayers as you celebrate the life of Mr.Hofman and will continue to pray to ease your pain at this tremendous loss. My God Bless and Keep you all.
