Robert (son of Dean K and Eva Hoffman) was Illinois State Clarinet Solo Champion in 1930 and 1931. At 16 he moved to NYC to study at the Ernest Williams School of Music and received his degree in 1934. He received a B.S. from New York University in 1939. During these early years, his professional achievements included playing first chair clarinet for the NBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Arturo Toscanini, as well as performing with maestros Leopold Stokowski and Leonard Bernstein. Mr. Hoffman taught at NYU (1939-1950) and Queens College (1942-1956). He returned to Ernest William's Summer Camp where the maestro would call upon Robert to "show us how it's supposed to go." It was while teaching at the camp in Upstate New York that Robert met his future wife, Lillian Macheras of NYC; they married in 1940. In 1950, Robert Hoffman moved his young family to Carle Place, Long Island. He devoted himself to his family and teaching wind instruments to aspiring students in Lindenhurst, NY.

Mr. Hoffman continued performing for 38 years in The Goldman Band's summer concert series, sponsored by the Guggenheim Foundation, conducted by Dr. Edwin Franco Goldman. This symphonic band played at New York City's Central Park, Prospect Park, and Lincoln Center. Even with the demands of teaching and playing professionally in the summer; Robert also rnanaged to conduct The Princeton University Band (1950-51); the Westbury Fire Department Band (1959-66); and the Roslyn Recreation Band (1967-74). In Robert's golden retirement years, he and Lillian moved to Phoenix. They often traveled with their treasured friends from the Williams School.

Jacobs, Janice Faye (Walz) Janice Faye Jacobs (formerly Walz), age 60, was born March 25, 1943 and died at home in Scottsdale, AZ on July 29, 2003. Janice was born in Louisiana but moved to Pennsylvania in 1976 with her first husband. She completed her BA in Accounting at Temple University and graduated Suma Cum Laude. She started a career in finance that took her from doing internal auditing for the University of Pennsylvania, to small town government in rural Pennsylvania, to her final position as the accountant for her son's small business in Phoenix. Janice was what is called a "straight shooter". Her personal view of life was that the best way to row down a stream is right down the middle. While she would always tell you what was on her mind (whether you liked it or not), this was never done with an intent of harm and was always done because Janice felt that the truth is always the truth. Janice was fiercely intelligent and typically saw the bottom to all situations long before most people realized a bottom line even existed. She was always ready with a kind word if you needed it and she gracefully and effortlessly guided and helped shape the lives of those around her with honesty and sincere advice. Janice moved to Arizona in 1999 with her husband Rick Heilman to be near her children and grandchildren. Although at the end of her very short battle with cancer she died quietly and painlessly at home she did feel there must be a clause or loophole somewhere in this contract called Life and Death that would allow her to continue on! She is preceded in death by her brother, Doug, and her first husband, Dan. Janice leaves behind her loving and devoted husband Rick, her children Kathy, Jay and Jason, and her grandchildren Emma and Tucker. Services at Messinger Mortuary, 8555 East Pinnacle Peak Road, Scottsdale on Monday, August 4th at 3:30 PM. There will be no viewing as it was her wish to be cremated.

("Chuck") Huggins went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, August 5, 2003. Huggins, 64, served for 15 years as Secretary/Treasurer of the Arizona State AFL-CIO, the highest state-level elected position in organized labor. He was a committed Christian and the salt of the earth. Huggins was born October 20, 1938 in Chandler, Arizona. After serving in the U.S. Air Force, he returned to his hometown. An electrician, he began a twenty-five year career of

65

involvement with Local 518 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, rising through the ranks to eventually become Business Manager. He was also active in many community and civic activities in the Globe and Gila County area. He moved his family to Phoenix in 1987 when he was elected to the state position. A tireless fighter for social and political justice and the rights of working families, Chuck Huggins' leadership of the State AFL-CIO brought a new focus on innovation, the use of technology, and the expansion of labor's traditional role. He led the creation of the Ensuring Opportunity Coalition (EOC), an initiative to serve dislocated workers and the underemployed, regardless of union membership. After his retirement as Secretary-Treasurer in 2002, he continued to serve as Executive Director of the EOC, as well as a member of the Governor's Council for Workforce Development Policy. Chuck Huggins never wavered in his principles and never backed down from a political fight for a just cause, but he pressed his case with a smile, and reached out to anyone willing to listen. Even his political opponents never questioned his integrity. His love of his work and the family of organized labor were exceeded only by his love for his own family, and especially for his granddaughters, Hannah and Sarah. His wife, Sharon, daughter Lisa Huggins Hubbard, son-in-law Phillip Hubbard, and granddaughters Hannah and Sarah survive him. He had four brothers-Ted, Bob, Jim and Lewis Huggins--and a sister, Ella Mae Brandt.
