A Town of Burlington man who perished in a vehicle fire last week was a dedicated employee who worked for more than 23 years at Best Bargains Inc. in Wheatland, an employer said Wednesday. “He was an absolutely indispensable cog in our machine. One of the most dedicated men and employees I have ever seen,” Doug Helnore, an owner of Best Bargains, said of Paul H. Hoffman. A warehouse supervisor at Best Bargains, a wholesale foods business at 6515 352nd Ave., Hoffman did everything from health inspections to helping out in the deli, Helnore said. On Wednesday, the Kenosha County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the 64-year-old resident of the Water’s Edge Circle area of the Town of Burlington as the victim in the vehicle fire in the store parking lot Friday.
