Former Aspen Assistant City Attorney David W. Hoefer passed away May 30, 2008, in Glenwood Springs.

David was born April 26, 1952, in Alexandria, Minn., to Wallace and Audrey Hoefer.

He graduated from St. Olaf College in 1974, and received his law degree from the Missoula Law School in Missoula, Mont., in 1977.

He began his law career in Billings, Mont., as a county attorney. He moved to Glenwood Springs in 1994, where he was the Assistant Garfield County Attorney. He then accepted a position of Assistant City Attorney of Aspen, where he was employed until his death.

He enjoyed his 13-year tenure with the city of Aspen dealing with municipal court matters, devoting insurmountable hours attending city of Aspen’s Planning and Zoning Commission, Historic Preservation Commission, Board of Adjustments, Liquor License Authority and city council meetings. He established a lasting professionalism within the community and will always be remembered with wonderful personal memories by his countless lifelong friends.

He is best known for his jovial personality, jolly chuckle, sense of humor, love of the history of baseball and the New York Yankees, Disney characters, passion for art, poetic writing and music, and profound genuineness to others.

He is survived by his parents.

David was laid to rest June 5 in Alexandria, Minn.

A celebration of his life will be held from 2-6 p.m. June 28, in Veltus Park in Glenwood Springs.
