It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sgt. Michael James Hoff, U.S. Army of Carol Stream FD Deputy Chief Robert Hoff, Chicago FD Fire Commissioner Ret.  Sgt. Hoff suffered a critical head wound in October of 1967 during the eighth month of his tour in Vietnam, when a mortar shell struck his armored troop transport vehicle while in hostile territory.

As a wounded warrior veteran, he worked through life with many physical and mental challenges, which increasingly caused greater struggles throughout the years of his life. On Sunday, March 30, 2014, at the age of 67, Sgt. Michael J. Hoff passed away with his family beside him at the Edward J. Hines V.A. Hospital.  May he rest in eternal peace.
