It is with great sadness that the family of Anthony S. Hoffart announce his passing on April 5th, 2023. He passed away peacefully at the Southwest Integrated Health Facility holding his wife’s hand, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Anthony was born on November 1, 1963, to Katherine and Anton Hoffart. He grew up on the family farm at Fox Valley, Sask. He attended school in Fox Valley and furthered his education in Moose Jaw taking a motor mechanics course. Before returning to Fox Valley to take over the family farm in 1995, he spent time working at the Yeast Ranch; on road construction; and in a variety of restaurants as a cook. Anthony was very proud to be able to farm organically and also began running ASH Farm Repair, helping local neighbours with equipment repair and welding jobs.
In 1999, he met the woman of his dreams, Pamela, and they were married on July 14th, 2001. They had a new home built and moved onto the family farm near Fox Valley later that year. On September 29th, 2003, their lives were blessed with the birth of their daughter, Abbie Kae. Four years later, on December 10th, 2007, Kelsey Grace was born and completed their family. Anthony was thrilled with his two daughters and proud to watch them grow and be involved in several activities. Anthony was an avid dance dad and attended every competition and recital he was able too.
Anthony was involved in his community and spent many hours volunteering to make his community a better place to live. He served on St. Mary’s Parish Council, built the set for Night Fox Theatre, drove school bus as a spare, and helped with PAA classes within the school. He was a member of the Fox Valley Recreation Board and spent many hours maintaining the local swimming pool. Anthony was also very proud to be a councillor/Reeve for the R.M. of Fox Valley. As part of this position, he was a member of the Southwest Integrated Health Facility Trust Board.
In August of 2021, he was not longer able to be at home and spent the last 20 months at the Southwest Integrated Health Facility. He soon had an extended family with the caregivers and residents of Prairie Meadows. Thank you to all the health workers and to everyone who visited, called, or texted – you will never know how much this all meant to him.
Anthony leaves to mourn his wife, Pamela, and his two daughters, Abbie and Kelsey. He is also survived by his brother William and sister-in-law Hannah, and their children Curtis and Amanda; and his sister Cathy and brother-in-law Gerald, and their children Crystal (Jody), and Johnathon (Maggie).
If desired, donations in memory of Anthony may be made to Fox Valley Recreation Board, Fox Valley.
