“Ray” Wolfe of Craig County went home to be with our Lord on March 7, 2021, several days shy of his 52nd birthday. He was preceded in death by his father, Herman Ray Wolfe; grandparents, Bill and Elsie Woods, and Ruthie and Henry Wolfe; father-in-law, Daniel Haupt; brother-in-law, Daniel W. Haupt; and several aunts and uncles.
He is survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Dorothy Wolfe; son, Dwayne Wyrick Wolfe and wife, April; grandchildren, Baiyli Mikel, Brantley, Dixie, and Kayla; mother, Hazel Wolfe; brothers, Henry Wolfe and wife, Roxie, Timmy Wolfe and wife, Missy, and Jason Wolfe; mother-in-law, Elinor Brown; brother-in-law, Frank Overstreet; sisters-in-law, Evelyn Gilmore, Robin Neighbors and her husband, Leo; fur-babies, Pinkie, Mater, Minnie, and Walley; and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends who will cherish their memories of him.
Ray was a big kid at heart and loved to play and joke around with others. He was always helpful to anyone in need. He loved his own kids and grandchildren, but kids everywhere loved him. He was a great bullshi**er and had so many ridiculous truth stories, anybody hearing one had to believe it!
Ray drove a truck for Roanoke County. He loved to go fishing, hunting and bowling in his spare time. He won many bowling awards. He could play poker all night and chew tobacco a bag at a time. He was a hard-headed person that was too good for this world and lost to his dear one’s way before his time. He will be missed by all those he loved and by those who loved him.
