Larry Allen Hoff was born on Tuesday, November 2, 1943 at Parkston, South Dakota. He was the second of eight children born to Albert and Olivia (Baltzer) Hoff. He graduated from Scotland High School in 1961. After high school, Larry worked for Art Handel and also at Schmidt’s Furniture delivering propane, amongst other duties. He went to work at the Co-op Farmer’s Association and later became manager. Following his time at the co-op, he became a full-time farmer. Larry served on the board of the Co-op Farmer’s Association for many years, several of them as president. He was a member of the Scotland Volunteer Fire Department for several years. He was a member of the United Church of Christ in Scotland and served in various capacities over the years, from usher to council member. Larry enjoyed sports immensely and devoted many hours of his time to Scotland area athletics. In 1998, he was inducted into the South Dakota Umpire’s Association Hall of Fame and in 2002 was honored at Scotland Sports Day for over 30 years of umpiring baseball in Scotland – from Teeners to Legion to the Scotland town team. He also served as part of the chain gang for the local football team for over 30 years. Larry died on Sunday, November 11, 2012 at the Dougherty Hospice House in Sioux Falls at the age of 69 years and 9 days.
Grateful for having shared Larry’s life are his seven brothers and sisters: Duane (Betty) Hoff, Vonda Dobbins, Joe (Theresa) Hoff, Lyle (Jean) Hoff, Lynn Heldt, Renee Magney, and Tamara (Phil) Gagnon; 21 nieces and nephews, 25 great-nieces and great-nephews, and 1 great-great-niece; six aunts: Lenora (Pat) Boehner, Rita Hoff, Sophia Hoff, Emma Hoff, Bertha Baltzer, and Ruth Baltzer; and one uncle, Elmer (Lorraine) Baltzer.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Olivia Hoff, and a brother-in-law, Ron Dobbins.
