Stephan M. Hoffman
Mr. Stephan M. Hoffman was born February 25, 1967 and passed away none other than on the day of love – February 14, 2023. Stephan was born and raised in East Lansing, Michigan where he was recognized by his entire community for being one of the most caring and loving souls anyone has met. He graduated from East Lansing High School in the Class of 1985 and followed his schooling to Michigan State University where his passion of music led him to become a sousaphone player in the MSU Marching Band. After deciding to become an Architect, he transferred his studies to Lawrence Tech University in Southfield where he received a master’s degree in 1993 and met his wife Silva (Basmadjian). They resided in Northville, Michigan where they raised their sons, Alex (Alyssa), Gabriel, and Jacob. He was a visionary for clients across Michigan and throughout the country. For 30 years he brought people’s dreams to life – not only in his work but with his friendships and willingness to serve and help others tirelessly. Stephan was preceded in death by his beloved mother Antonia (Dertouzos) Hoffman. Surviving are father, Aaron Hoffman and sisters, Karla Nester (Jeffrey) and Nicole Hoffman. To his dear friends and family, thank you for being a part of his life. He loved everyone and wore his golden heart on his sleeve for us all. We are blessed to have known Stephan; he left us with a lifetime of precious and unforgettable memories and will be forever remembered and loved as the nature-loving frog man, true visionary beyond his time, and friend that everyone adored. He will be deeply missed. Trisagion prayers will be said at 9:30 a.m. at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, 1701 E. Saginaw St., Lansing, on February 21, followed by funeral service at 10:00 a.m., and then a luncheon. Contributions may be made to the church.
