He was born in Oneonta on January 7, 1942, a son of the late Raymond and Rosina Bowen Hoffman.

Mr. Hoffman attended Oneonta schools and was a Chef at SUNY Oneonta until disabled. Clarence has been in ill health for several years, before this he and Carol remodeled several houses in the area, which he loved doing.
