Dr. Hofmann is joined by his wife Deanna and their three young daughters; Lydia, MaKayla, and Alyssa. Both Dr. Hofmann and his wife grew up in rural areas and wanted to raise their family in the same setting. When looking for a location to raise their family, Eaton was at the top of their list. Both Dr. Hofmann and his wife were active in sports throughout high school and college. Deanna is a 10 year 4-Her and looks forward to the girls joining 4-H when they are of age. They are very grateful to have the opportunity to join the community and call Eaton their home.
