Donald dedicated his career to the field of engineering, and worked at Formica for many years. His expertise and commitment were respected and admired by his colleagues throughout his distinguished career.

“I’m not sure if I ever met Mr. Hoffmann, but his name was one I heard so often growing up since my dad, Tom Schneider, enjoyed working with him at Formica all those years ago. Heaven has a couple engineers up there reuniting…Dad passed away May 30th. Blessings of God’s peace to your family from the Schneider family as we send our deepest sympathies.”
