Frederic Hockman Obituary

      Frederic E. “Fritz” Hockman, 83, of Cogan Station, passed away on Sunday, November 19, 2023, at The Gatehouse. Surviving is his loving wife, Grace A. “Graye” (Fulmer) Hockman whom he married the first day of Spring 1977.

      Born October 11, 1940, he was a son of the late Walter E. and Helen J. (Stepp) Hockman.

      He was a 1958 graduate of Williamsport High School. A Newberry boy, he grew up playing baseball at Lincoln Little League, West End Babe Ruth and the Williamsport Central League. Fritz proudly served his country in the United States Navy, Navel Air Division, PATROL SQUADRON TEN. He worked at Schnadig Furniture Company and Chemcoat Inc. in Montoursville for many years. His most favorite job, where he loved waking up and going to work everyday, was with Fulmers Personal Care in Williamsport and Lock Haven.

      Fritz was a charter member of Lycoming County Yacht Club. An avid bowler, he spent Friday afternoons at Faxon showcasing his friendly competition and camaraderie. Fritz enjoyed golfing, woodworking and driving around his little sports car. He had a unique talent for making people laugh, whether through his quick wit or his endless supply of jokes. He was always the first to offer kind words or his compassion in times of need.

      Surviving in addition to his wife are two sons, Jimmie W. Rodgers of Punta Gorda, FL and Kurt Von Hockman (Angela) of Hughesville; two granddaughters, Emily and Olivia Hockman; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Robert and Donald Hockman.

      In keeping with his wishes, no services will be held.
