Carole, I am truly sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed talking to you and Bob even though it was usually on your way out of church. You and your family have my heartfelt sympathy and you remain in my thoughts and prayers.

It is with a heavy heart full of sympathies for Carole , David, Wendy and all the family and friends .
We meet the Wolf family in Corpus Christi ,Tx. At an apartment complex we all were staying after moving to TX. From Michigan.
They were waiting for base housing at the time.
We got to be friends and Wendy n Craig (our son ) were friends also.
We ended up not liking it there.
Long story short , we ended up moving to FL. For better job opportunities . They had there house up for rent in Orange Park FL. and we rented it till they retired and wanted their house back.
Stayed friends all those years , We moved back to Mi.
We've had many yrs of correspondence n sharing our families journeys over the years.
Bob's passing was a shock as it was to everyone.
Our prayers are with you all.
Gods blessing's for healing to you all.
The Hyde's

Mr Wolf was one of a kind. I was never the best student academically but I always had a love of science that was fostered even further in his class. Everyday was fun and entertaining. I still live by the words "work smarter, not harder". Thank you Mr Wolf for you wisdom and guidance. You will be truly missed

I always appreciate Uncle Bob having his house open to my family for all the summer days spent by the pool and slumber parties at the house. I appreciate everything he's taught me and how he was always a hard working man.
My thoughts are with you guys. Love you

Mr. Wolf was my neighbor when I was growing up. He inspired me to excel in science and specifically computer science of which my career has excelled. Let us all have a block party with homemade fireworks in his honor. ❤️
