Vilo L. Hoffmann, 98

August 6, 1920 - March 24, 2019
Services honoring Vilo Hoffmann will be held on Friday, May 31 at 1:00 p.m. at the St. Philip and St. James Episcopal Church at 2797 South Lowell Blvd, Denver, Colorado, with internment following the service at Ft. Logan National Cemetery. A celebration of life will follow.
Vilo L. "Mac" Hoffmann was born August 6, 1920, in Parkston, the youngest child of Gottlieb and Emelia Hoffmann. After graduating from Parkston High School and spending two years at Dakota Wesleyan University, Mitchell, Vilo moved to Washington, D.C., and joined the United States Army. He was transferred into the OSS--Office of Strategic Services--precursor to the CIA) when it was formed in 1942. "Mac Forest" was his cover name during intelligence and codebreaking training at Bletchley Park in England, and he went by the nickname “Mac” ever after. He was honorably discharged from the United States Army as a 1st Lieutenant at the end of World War II. Vilo was awarded the Bronze Star for his service in counter-intelligence, for his success hunting and arresting high-ranking Nazi and SS intelligence officers, at least one of whom was tried at Nuremburg. After the war, he continued to serve his country as a foreign service intelligence officer in the CIA, traveling and living in many different countries. He retired in 1972 to Evergreen, Colorado, where he raised his family and started a second career: operating Hoffmann Landscaping for 20 years. He served as the post commander of the Evergreen V.F.W. Had the war not intervened, Vilo might have become a professional musician. He won a National High School Music Contest for baritone singing in 1938, and fronted a big band during college. He continued to sing beautifully throughout his life, and long served as choir director and soloist for his church.
Vilo was forever curious about other people, optimistic by nature, a strong, vivid and charismatic man with a great sense of humor. Throughout his life he enjoyed outdoor activities, especially golf, skiing, motorcycling and camping.
He is survived by his youngest children, Amelia Adair and Teresa Holden, and their spouses Martin and Rho. He was preceded in death by his spouse, Margaret “Peggy” Mahoney, his daughter Jo Ann, his parents and his siblings Alma, Leonard, Herbert, Paul, Albert, Estelline (Este Meyer), Raymond and Elrod. His cousin, Veronica Barron, raised with him and whom he considered a sister, also died before him.
The family thanks the compassionate staff and volunteers of Seasons Hospice who cared for him through the last 18 months of his life. Donation in Vilo's memory may be made to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation, www.vfw.org/foundation/donate, or Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care, https://seasonsfoundation.org/donate/.
