RIXFORD, Pa. — Lester L. Shoff, 70, of Bakers Trestle Road, died on Wednesday (Feb. 10, 2021) after a brave battle with cancer.

Born March 29, 1950, in Olean, N.Y., he was a son of George L. and Opal M. Hannold Shoff. He was raised with his siblings, by his grandmother, Edna V. Shoff.

He graduated from Otto-Eldred High School, in 1968, and excelled at sports. His life’s work was as a union brick layer. He was a master of his craft.

Being a dirt track and drag racer, Lester, enjoyed working at Eastbay Raceway in Florida, during the winter months. During the summer, he was often giving away fresh grown vegetables to everyone. He had a gift for gardening and canning the harvest. Lester will be sorely missed by his family and many faithful friends.

Surviving are his son, Michael Shoff Bradt of Moncks Corner, S.C.; four grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; two sisters, Susan C. (James) Krall of Derrick City and Pamela J. (Gene) Trask of Smethport; and several nieces and nephews. In the last several years, he was reunited with his life-long love Mickie Wilcox Holly, who was selfless in her devotion to Lester’s care.

He was predeceased by his parents; a brother, Steven Shoff in 2003; and a niece, Emily Krall in 2007.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Frame Funeral Home, Eldred. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions there will be no services held at this time. Burial will be in McKean Memorial Park in Lafayette.
