Hans "Spanky" Hoffmann
San Francisco, d. 20.Jun.2014,heart attack.
To all our riding friends n associates, this has been a bad week for
the Sunday morning riders. Wade got hit last night and has a badly
broken ankle and bike. Matt Harold was in a wreck on hwy 175 and is
paralyzed from the stomach down and our dear friend and my employee
for years Spanky had a massive heart attack last night an did not
make it. More info to come RIP Hans Hans Hoffmann. Let's all be
carefull out there and survive! - Raymond Roy
I met Spanky in 1989 as a walking messenger. Spanky was the first
messenger that became my friend and gave me inspiration to work as a
motorcycle messenger and do cool shit like the Cabo 1000. I became a
Paramedic in 2002 and if not mistaken by Celena Hoffmann's recent
post, roughly two years ago was called to Spanky's house to do CPR
on my poor friend. My crew did the best we could to save his life.
Sadly, I was the one to pronounce his death. Spanky will always live
on in my heart as the coolest (and craziest) dude ever known. I
probably wouldn't be who I am today if it wasn't for Hans Hoffmann.
