Birth Date: 
Sunday, December 28, 1930
Date of Passing: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Leland (Lee) Eugene Wolf, 91, of Wooster went to be with his Savior on Thursday, June 30, 2022 at Wooster Community Hospital.

He was born December 28, 1930 to Byrl C. and Fern V. (Irving) Wolf in Loudonville, Ohio. On October 30, 1949 he married Carol Ann Amos. She passed on September 20, 1987; then he married Gwynn Conrad who passed on December 21, 2007.

Leland graduated from Loudonville High School with the class of 1948. He worked many years as a tool grinder for Borg Warner (Rex Roth) and retired at 62. Leland spent long hours working in his yard after retirement and many people commented on how nice it always looked.  

He was a life-long member of the Scottish Freemasonry; and also belonged to the Garfield Lodge No 528. He is a member of West Hill Baptist Church and served as a greeter with his wife, Carol, for many years. Leland served his country as a member of the Ohio National Guard from 11/47 until 11/50. At his discharge, he was a Corporal with Company “H” 145th Infantry Regiment, 37th Infantry Division.

One of his favorite past-times was watching his grandchildren play sports. He also enjoyed having lively discussions about current events. He loved playing cards and spent many an evening playing with his family and neighbors.

Lee never met a stranger; everyone was welcome in his house. Even when cautioned about the world being a different place than when he grew up, he commented, “I have never been afraid of anyone and I am not going to start now.” He had rapport with both the young and the elderly.

Leland is survived by his daughters Susan Ackerman and Jacqueline Frizzell, grandsons J. Gregory Morrison, Chad (Laura Young) Griffith, Matthew (Heather Puzzetti) Ackerman and Mitchell (KrisAnne Cuellar) Ackerman and granddaughters Melissa (Vinny Larios) Leckrone and Tiffany (Bobby Farmer) Salyers; great-grandchildren Kale and Karissa Leckrone, Carly Larios, Dylan McManus and Devin Griffith, Ashley and Alec Ackerman, Ian, Jaydin, Dominic and Tyler Salyers and brother Edward (Anne) Wolf and many nieces and nephews.

Condolences

I was so sorry to hear about Leland. He was such a nice man. I have known him since our support group in 2008. I had many good times with him and the rest of the group. He will be missed. Once when I had a get together here at the house, there was a lot of food left. I told him I would send him home with a care package. When people started leaving he stayed and stayed. Finally he said "I'm waiting for my care package".

To all the Wolf Family,
Lee was a long time friend and neighbor. We will miss seeing him. Our sympathy to all of you.

Leland and I were very good friends during our years as students and classmates in the Loudonville School System. He was friendly, kind, and always easy to talk with. He helped make my school days fun and rewarding. Through the years, we only chatted at class events or chance meetings, but I still considered him a good friend because of all those many school memories. We had a good "catch-up visit" at a class reunion about three years ago.
Please accept my sympathy and thoughts of comfort for your loss. May God's blessing add to your comfort.

My heart is sad to hear Lee has passed, but it also rejoices to imagine the reunion of loved ones the moment he entered eternity. Lee worked with my Dad, George Ramsier, for many years and they were friends. Lee was a very kind man whom I look forward to meeting up with one day. Sincere sympathies to his family.
