Meet Hoffman Harless, Resident of the Month at The Meadows

IMG_3214Meet the out-going, BIG teaser, Hoffman Harless. Hoffman recently moved to The Meadows after residing in our Harpeth Meadows Housing community.

Hoffman, has a “colorful” personality and never meets a stranger. I recently caught up with Hoffman and learned some interesting facts. For starters, he was born in Birmingham, Alabama, on September 8, 1927 and grew up there. After graduating from high school he was drafted into the U.S. Army. After serving his country he returned to Birmingham and attended Samford University on a G. I. scholarship. There he received a degree in U.S. History. After graduation, he taught high school history for several years. Most of his career was spent selling insurance.

He and his lovely late wife, Martha Cathryn, met and were married in 1952. Hoffman was quick to express his wedding was large, but his life with Martha Cathryn, was even larger. Together they had two children. A son, that has passed away, and a precious daughter, Susan that is the “apple of his eye”. Hoffman has two grandsons, Patrick and Jordan which he also speaks of fondly.

When asking about his hobbies, Hoffman expressed his love of history, poetry, golf, and travelling. When asked to share some his travels, with a smile Hoffman expressed that he has travelled all 50 states, been abroad to Italy, Germany, France, South America, Austria, New Zealand, and China.

If you’re ever at The Meadows look Hoffman Harless up. You won’t regret it! His outgoing, larger than life personality, will put a BIG smile on your face. You will leave a richer person because Hoffman Harless will have brightened your day.

Congratulations, Hoffman Harless, on being selected as The Meadows Resident of the Month. We’re grateful you’re a part of The Meadows family.
