Willie Franklin Wolfe

Willie Franklin “Frank” Wolfe, 90, of Jay, had a restful night’s sleep at home, and early morning, 8/21/14, entered peacefully into eternal rest with his Lord Jesus Christ. He was a lifelong resident of Jay, attended Jay High School, worked many different jobs, and retired as a plumber of 26 years from Santa Rosa County School Board Maintenance Department. He was a child of the Great Depression and developed a work ethic to be admired; he was also a U.S. Army Veteran. He was an outdoorsman admiring nature, fishing, and mowing grass. He was a member of the True Worship Church and thanked the Lord every day for his blessings. He was especially excited about his 90th birthday, so we counted down the days with him. He enjoyed his party with family and friends. Dad, we’re proud for you; you made it. He was preceded in death by his wife of 67 years, Glennis Jones Wolfe; parents Willie Heines and Clara Belle Brown Wolfe; stepmother, Mattie White Wolfe; brothers Clifford and B.C. Wolfe. He is survived by daughter, Paulette (Buddy) Bradley; son, Jim (Lisa) Wolfe; grandchildren Paul (Jennifer) Bradley; Patrice (Bryan) Poole; Shaena (Ken) Reeves, Riana Wolfe and Kelli Cook — great-grandchildren: Dalton, Dylan, Cristian, Cloe, Kendal, Kole, and Brantley — sister, Dorothy Diamond; and uncle Joe Brown. Funeral services will be held at Jay Funeral Home Sunday at 3:00 p.m. with visitation one hour prior to service. Reverend Adam Peterson and Chris Hendrix officiating. Interment will follow at Jay Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Jimmy White, Jerry Floyd, Jackie Diamond,Palace Brown, Lonnie Williams,Paul Bradley, and Tom Garrett. Daddy, your smile, quick wit, appreciation of life and “Franklin sayisms” will be missed. Special thanks to faithful caregivers Gary Gibson, Karen Lindsey, Margaret Hughes; and neighbor Patty McGraw. It will always be remembered.
