Brian R. Wolf

December 7, 1947May 21, 2019

Retired Heavy Equipment Operator for Molon Excavating, whose work will forever be enshrined in a major addition to Munson Medical Center, has died on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Brian Wolf was a man who worked with his hands, served his country and was a friend and mentor to many. He will be remembered by his nephew, Barry and friends Jerry, Ed and countless others as the gracious host of the “Wolf Den”; a spacious and sprawling shop paradise and self-described social club where anyone needing to work on cars or build just about anything came to commune, converse and, at times, complain. Joanna, Brian’s wife of 31 years, describes her husband as someone who loved everyone and would help anyone. Brian was not a traveler; he preferred to spend his time at home, watching westerns and enjoying the company of his wife, family and friends. On any given day, he could be found building bird houses and putzing around the property on his golf cart, antagonizing others with spirited debate. A gentle, giving man with a soft spot for his grandkids and an appetite for milk and cookies. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Joanna; his daughter, Shaye Gensler; step-daughters, Pam (Kyle) Morgan, Kim and Dawn Koszyk; and his grandchildren, Kayla, Marcel, Garret, Keegan, and Dalton. Brian had several siblings and is survived by brother, Jack (Marge); sister, Marie Arsenault; and sister-in-laws, Valda and Bridie. He mourned the loss of his son, Kevin; brothers, Stanley (Dori), Don and Paul; and sister, Deanna (Bernie) Miller. Anyone wishing to take part in celebrating the life of Brian Wolf is invited to a luncheon at the Summit City Grange #672 on Saturday, July 13th at 1:00. The Wolf family would like to thank the Munson House Hospice team for their care and support.

My sincere condolences to Brian's family. Brian was a part-time classmate of mine at St Mary Hannah, alternating years between Hannah and Kingsley! It was fun to have him with us since our class was so small, only 18, and we felt like a family. Brian added a bit of fun and character to our group. We didn't have much contact as adults -- he graduated from Kingsley. But I remember his positive nature and upbeat attitude about life. His brother Stanley married my mom's cousin Doris Schichtel and I do know their kids. My thoughts and prayers are for Brian to be enjoying time now with our Lord and will keep him and all of you in my prayers. May he rest in peace.
