Adam Blair Hoffman, 58, died on June 9, 2023. Adam was larger than life in personality, love, and humor. If you knew Adam, you felt like you were his best friend. He loved meeting people, sharing his life with them, and learning about their lives.
More than anything, Adam adored his family and felt great pride in them: his wife, Lisa Landau; his daughter, Ricki; and his son, Noah. He was also a huge dog lover, who was even willing to wrap his head in Saran Wrap covered in peanut butter to lure his dog into allowing him to clip her nails.
Adam was the son of Carole and the late Samuel Hoffman. His mother shared his bawdy sense of humor and the two were exceptionally close. Adam was the brother of Jamie (Paul) Rosenfeld and Randy (Andi) Hoffman, and the brother-in-law of Jeffrey (Fran) Landau. He will be missed by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and cousins.
While Adam always led with humor, he was a sensitive friend who always made time for those he loved.
Adam was a searcher with numerous talents. He was a skilled artist, who studied photography. His portraits were stunning and captured the essence of his subjects. He spent the last 13 years as a recruiter for TMC, a job in which he gained a beloved following of individuals whom he helped find a career and who simply enjoyed his sense of humor.
Those who knew Adam best also know he was a fixer and a caregiver. He would hop into a stranger’s car to expertly parallel park for them, handily take on leadership of multi-layered community events, and always fill his family’s gas tanks and ensure their cars had massive emergency survival kits. With Adam by your side, you always felt safe.
Adam grew up in Springfield, Montgomery Country, and earned a BS from Penn State, where he was a brother in Beta Sigma Beta. He earned a BFA in photography from Rochester Institute of Technology. Adam began and ended his life at Einstein Hospital on North Broad Street in Philadelphia. Upon his death, he partook in the ultimate mitzvah, by donating his organs to help others live and further research.
