SANTAQUIN — An Army veteran in need of money for a new roof left his house Friday morning and returned to find a brand new roof installed by complete strangers from the surrounding community. Last fall, George Hoffman met with roofer Mark Martineau to see how much it would cost to fix his roof that was damaged from strong winds. “I gave him a price and he said he would have to save enough money for next year to do the roof,” Martineau said. Martineau found out that Hoffman is an Army veteran who moved to Utah from Wyoming two years ago for a better job for his family. That was enough for Martineau to want to help him, but when he discovered the reason why Hoffman didn't have the money right away, he started thinking of doing it for free. “I've been thinking about him for a long time. and he's never left my mind, Martineau said. “Just for what he's done and what his family has been though with his daughter having cancer.” Hoffman's daughter had a brain tumor removed when she was 3 months old. Martineau spread Hoffman's story and his plan on Facebook and his blog, and within hours had people volunteering.
