  1. God bless Robert Hoffman Sr. he finally gets to go home to see his wife Sally. He was an awesome person always had a great personality, love going to the races with him just love talking to him at the shop. He was like a father I never had. he will be missed. God bless the family.

  2. I was deeply saddened to see the news of Bob’s passing. He was a wonderful boss and friend. I regret that I had not been in contact with him since he returned to PA. I will always remember his love of racing, drinking beer together after a long day at work and his gentle spirit. May he Rest In Peace. He deserves it.

  3. “Uncle Bob”, you will be fondly remembered for your generous spirit and for your genuine friendship with my dad, Ray and mom, Nancy. As you joyfully re-unite with them in heaven, please send God’s peace to your friends and family still here in this life, who will miss you greatly.

  4. One of the kindest men I have ever met who raised a son with that same kind spirit and a passion for racing who, in turn, has also touched and changed my life in many ways…including passing on a passion for drag racing. “Robert Sally” will be missed but certainly not forgotten. Comforting to know he’s not struggling to breathe anymore but is happily in his wife’s arms and racing for the Lord ☺️. Prayers and hugs to the family. Love you guys ❤️
