Glen C Hoff, Attorney

April 15, 1967 - June 04, 2021

After a brief and courageous battle with hepatorenal syndrome, Glen passed away the morning of June 4 at his Mount Vernon home. Close family members, and his two cats, attended Glen at the time of his passing.

In addition to his two cats, Maya and Silver, Glen is survived by his brother Michael G. Hoff and wife Joan, his sister Mildred T. Hoff, his brother Peter N. Hoff and wife Lisa, his niece Amy Vetter, and nephews Eddie Richardson, Justin Hoff, Andrew Hoff and Grant Hoff. Glen is preceded in death by his parents Dianne and Peter M. Hoff, and his brother David E. Hoff.

Glen put a lot of living into his 54 years. He was a prominent Skagit Valley trial attorney who grew up in Lynnwood, Washington. A 1985 graduate of Meadowdale High School (elected student body president),

he went on to earn an undergraduate degree in History from the University of Washington (while completing 2 years of Naval Reserve Officer Training), and a law degree from the University of Idaho College of Law. After an internship with the Asotin County Prosecutor’s office and a few years with a couple of Seattle law firms, Glen moved to Mount Vernon in the late 1990’s and began work as a criminal defense attorney with the Skagit County Public Defender’s office, where he rose to the position of Chief Deputy Public Defender. After 10 successful years with that office, he opened his own practice in Mount Vernon. In addition to his love for practicing law, Glen was an avid outdoorsman. He was particularly adept at all kinds of fishing. Besides local outings, Glen went on many destination fishing trips to eastern Washington, Idaho, Alaska and northern British Columbia, often accompanied by family members, close friends, or both. Glen will be remembered by a lot of people for a lot of things. He was widely admired and respected for his trial skills. Fishing and Glen just went together. He travelled extensively: Rome and Thailand were two more recent excursions, and he indulged himself and travelling companions with occasional trips to southern California (Santa Anita), Nevada (Reno/Las Vegas), and Hawaii. He was an excellent cook and enjoyed hosting dinner parties with friends. He was generous with his time, spending many volunteer hours in support of the Rotary and other community/charitable organizations, and providing free legal assistance for clients that could not afford it. The Swinomish tribe honored Glen with a “Blanket Ceremony” for volunteer legal work he performed on behalf of tribal members. He was active in local theater, most recently doing a turn as the high school principal in META’s production of “Stand and Deliver”. He made a name for himself on the local karaoke circuit with his rendition of Elvis’ “American Trilogy”. His wit was both sharp and disarming, and his charm was warm and genuine. He did not seek the spotlight, but he knew what to do when the light shone on him – he will be greatly missed.

Please consider a donation in Glen’s name to one of the following organizations: META Performing Arts,

NOAH animal shelter, or Skagit Valley Land Trust. (From the Hawthorne Funeral Home website)
