Obituary


He was a simple, happy-go-lucky, reliable, hard working man, who enjoyed being a little mischievous kid that transferred into his adult life. Wolf never lost his child-like innocence and he had an ability to see the good in everyone. He was a free-spirit and was brave enough to escape East Germany in 1957 by leaving his moped at the border to pursue the American dream. However, he always returned home to family and friends; while maintaining his love and pride of his home country. He joined the US Army in 1960 to show his dedication...

He was a simple, happy-go-lucky, reliable, hard working man, who enjoyed being a little mischievous kid that transferred into his adult life. Wolf never lost his child-like innocence and he had an ability to see the good in everyone. He was a free-spirit and was brave enough to escape East Germany in 1957 by leaving his moped at the border to pursue the American dream. However, he always returned home to family and friends; while maintaining his love and pride of his home country. He joined the US Army in 1960 to show his dedication to his new country that he dreamed of better opportunity. Eventually, his independent nature, and positivity led him to open up a tool and die business and become an entrepreneur. Wolf always enjoyed showing off his shop and offering his expert advice in the trade being a 3rd generation machinist. He was a loving and dedicated father, animal lover, a foodie, a techie for his time, HAM radio, tinkerer, he enjoyed boating in his younger years and travel. He is most remembered for his jokester personality and his love for April Fool's Day. He had such a drive and a determination to live and had a long battle with PSP.

A public service will be held at Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veteran's Memorial Cemetery, Wrightstown, NJ on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at 11:30am.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made in his memory to Cure PSP at www.PSP.org
