Amy, Bob and Family, I was sorry to read of Your dad’s passing. He was a good guy and I enjoyed working for him all those years ago. I will remember him fondly with that ornery grin, walking into the video store whistling and carrying his newspaper after golf. Sympathy and love to you all. Denise (Moran) Santille

Condolences to the entire Wolf family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Mr. Wolf was a nice man to my father and I. When he would visit with his wife at The Inn at Northwood he would also visit and have nice talks with my father Percival Garner. We appreciated him and his wife’s kindness. May the family find comfort again at this time of sorrow. Percival Garner & Esther Avery Family

So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I first met Bob many years ago when I was working a summer at the Title Office. What a remarkable man! He would come in the office and when he left he had everyone in stitches. I would run into Bob every once in a while over the years and he always remembered something funny that happened during that summer. RIP my friend.
