James Wolfe, active in church, PennDOT worker
James D. Wolfe, 71, of Denver, was stricken ill while on vacation in Wildwood Crest, N.J., and died unexpectedly Friday, Sept. 20, 2013 at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center.
Harriet A. (Lowenthal), his wife of 31 years, survives.
Born in Columbia, he was the son of the late Oscar and Adeline (Genevese) Wolfe.
He was an equipment operator for PennDOT for 32 years. A member of Swamp Christian Fellowship in Reinholds, he served as an assistant Sunday School teacher for 4-to 7-year-olds, a willing worker, and a member of the "bulletin crew." His greatest joy was spending time with his family; he was actively involved in the lives of his grandchildren. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, and working in his yard.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by a son: Barry Wolfe, Harrisburg, and two daughters: Tammy, married to Larry R. Martin, Denver, and Penny, married to Patrick McHugh, Akron, seven grandchildren, and one great-granddaughter.
His funeral was held Sept. 25 at Swamp Christian Fellowship, Reinholds, with Pastor M. Craig Snow officiating. Interment will be in Swamp Cemetery.
