Is Dirk DeWolfe the same person who was called Billy DeWolfe in Cortland NY, and sang with the band "Ronnie and the Red Caps"?
If you have any information about this, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you kindly.

Dirk was a family member. My loving cousin. I remember when they lived in New York State and we will go visit in the mountains. We will play games outside and run around and he would chase after us. He is such a caring loving heart. You’ll have a lot of love in heaven as he did on earth . Love to all my cousins and their family and their children. Sorry for the loss God bless
