  • Patty,
    I was honored to be a neighbor for awhile to you and Bob, and a friend even longer. I remember Bob’s love for kitchen gadgets. He had more than I do and I love being in the kitchen and having the right tools for cooking. He was always warm and friendly, did so much for others. His love has been passed thru his family.

  • Extending my deepest sympathy to the whole Wolfe family. Bob was indeed one of the good guys and I know you all will miss him greatly. I hadn’t seen him in years, but know that there is a little hole in the world with him gone. All the best in this tough time to his mom, Joe, David, and Rose, all their families and Patty and his kids…..let the good memories of a really good man stay with and sustain you always. Baker

  • This man made me feel like family from the moment I met him. I loved laughing with him, he always had something funny to say or did something silly to make us laugh. He always cracked me up with his kitchen gadgets and his popcorn bag at the movies. I loved his cooking, he always had something good planned for dinner. His chocolate covered bourbon cherries at christmas were so good, I was impressed with his Christmas candy. He’s a wild wolf now, a roaming spirit looking over his pack. It was an honor to be your daughter in-law. May you rest in peace dad.

  • Pat, Bobby and Charlie. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I know it has been a long time, but I still think of all of you and wonder how you are doing. Bob was a great man and will be dearly missed. I will keep you all in my prayers.

  • Patty,
    We are all very sad to hear about Bob. He was always so kind and always ready to strike up a conversation at all the Wolfe gathering. We will all miss him.
