Hofert, a respected Kenmore businessman and owner of Hofert Jewelers at 2876 Delaware Ave., passed away near his Lewiston home Feb. 2, 2015.
As a longtime member of St. Christopher Roman Catholic Church in Tonawanda, and involved parent at St. Andrew Country Day School in Kenmore, Hofert supported numerous charitable causes - Camp Turner among them.
A past president of the Rotary Club of Kenmore, the devoted family man took pride in that organization's service to the community.
Hofert was also a member of the Kenmore Village Improvement Society. He was the first to sponsor the annual Mustache March 5K to raise money for ovarian cancer research. The run has been renamed the Dominic Hofert Mustache March 5K in his honor.
Keeping alive Hofert's spirit of service to both his religious and secular communities is the primary goal of his friends and family, and has resulted in the creation of the Dominic Hofert Diamond Classic.
