William S. Hoffman, III


Obituary of William S. Hoffman, III

William Stanislaus Hoffman III, died in his sleep on January 1, 2022, in Providence Village, Texas, while visiting family. He was 62.

Mr. Hoffman resided in Alexandria, Virginia. He worked as an award-winning journalist, writer and editor for more than three decades, covering a wide range of beats including government, banking and finance, healthcare, trade, energy, and taxation. During the 1990s, he held the title of National Correspondent for the publication Small Business News, covering Congress and federal agencies from a small business perspective.

For the past ten years, Mr. Hoffman was senior IRS reporter for the publication Tax Notes Today Federal. In this capacity, Mr. Hoffman was the first Tax Notes writer to bring a sitting IRS commissioner (John Koskinen) for on-the-record interviews with reporters and editors at the Tax Analysts building. Tax Notes senior executive editor for news, Chuck O’Toole, said of Hoffman: “He was one of the finest writers we’ve ever had. He never threw softballs.”

Mr. Hoffman was born on December 8, 1959, in St. Louis, Missouri, to William S. Hoffman, Jr. and Patricia Hoffman (nee Smith). Both were professional writers who, for a time during the 1970s and ‘80s, worked for the Delaware State News. Mr. Hoffman grew up in Dover, Delaware, and attended Delaware State College, as well as the University of Texas at Arlington, where he majored in history.

He is survived by his daughter, Kashmir Hoffman, and her husband, Brian Patrick McCarthy; grandsons Seamus and Ambrose McCarthy; his stepmother Judith Reeves-Hoffman of Temple, Georgia; sister Terri Hoffman and her husband, Julio Escalante, of New York City; sister Alicia White and her husband Michael White, of Villa Rica, Georgia; brothers John Hoffman of Oklahoma City, and Ethan and Micah Lewis of Temple, Georgia; nephews Patrick Escalante of NYC, Evan White of Villa Rica, Georgia; and niece Sage White, also of Villa Rica. He was preceded in death by his father, William S. Hoffman, Jr.; his mother, Patricia Smith Hoffman; and two brothers, James Francis Hoffman, and Joseph Michael Hoffman.

A memorial service is planned for a later date.

    I was greatly saddened to learn of Bill’s passing. Over the years, as a result of his great interest in the IRS and its impact on taxpayers, we became good friends and kept in touch even after my term as Commissioner ended. Like many who came to know and appreciate his good work and his wonderful personality, I will miss him and our meetings and discussions. My condolences and best wishes to his family in this difficult time.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
