Paul Eugene Hoffmeister, 90 of Taylorville, died at 4:21 p.m., Monday, May 27, 2019 at St. Johns Hospital, Springfield.

Paul was born on June 10, 1928 in St. Louis, Ill., the son of Frank and Elsie (Lane) Hoffmeister. Paul married Betty Jean Oliver on September 20, 1947 in Taylorville. She preceded him in death on June 28, 2014.

After their marriage, Paul went on to serve in the United States Army. Paul worked many jobs, and enjoyed each one of them, retiring and then going back to work to fill his spare time. He worked as a guard at Menard and Vandalia Prisons, as a supervisor for Georgia Pacific as well as GSI, and later worked for the Taylorville Country Club Golf Course. When he wasn’t working, he could be found taking a walk or on the golf course.

Paul is survived by his children: Cheryl (Tim) Hampton of Waggoner; Tresa (Mitch) Mansfield of Taylorville, and Mark (Peggy) Hoffmeister of Langleyville; grandchildren: Michael (Jolene) Lamb, Jennifer (Scott) Hutchens, Nicole Hampton, Willie (Amber) Coady, Amanda Dill, Jessica (Brad) Bell, Joee (Terry) Johnson, Sara (Stephen) Salisbury, Eric (Stephanie) Price, Greg Price, Brittni Harrison, and Carrie Harrison; 20 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; one son-in-law: Daryl Harrison; brother: Frank Hoffmeister, Jr. of Arizona; and one sister-in-law: Donna Beaman and her family.

Along with his wife, Paul was preceded in death by his parents, one son: Michael Hoffmeister, and one daughter: Juliann Harrison.

In accordance with Paul’s wishes, he will be cremated and there will be no service. The family will host a private burial at Blue Mound Cemetery at a later date.
