  2. sorry for your loss. we had some really great times back in the day . i just found out about mike today so i am sorry i wont make the funeral but my spirit is there with all the family. he will be missed greatly reat in peace my brother

  3. Our deepest sympathies to you Carole and all the family. Many fond memories of our families getting together. We always enjoyed occasionally meeting Mike at the store or just walking around town. Had some fun conversations.

  4. Laughter is medicine to the soul and Mike was always there to give us all a prescription of laughter. Through the years Mike would greet me with a warm welcome and a smile. God blessed us all with Mikes life for which I forever will be thankful. I have been honored to know my friend and coworker for so many wonderful years. I’ll miss you friend!

  5. My memories of Mike go back to the 1970s when we were growing up on S. Andrews St. It was only two-blocks long but everyone loved hanging out at the Wolf house. Lots of fond memories but most of them just good time shenanigans. Decades later I would have the privilege of working with Mike at Armstrong. I would quickly learn he was the “go-to” welder and builder in the shop. His craftsmanship on assembling complex skids was simply amazing. One of my favorite stories was a phone call I received from a customer that had just taken delivery of a custom skid. The customer wanted to know the name of the machine that did all of the solder joints on the copper piping, for he had never seen such perfection. I got to chuckle and tell him the name of the machine was, Mike Wolf. It took me a while to convince him I was not kidding. I fielded many calls like that. A testimony to his skills.

  6. I was blessed to work with Mike as well. David Armstrong, CEO of Armstrong International at the time, promised our division a larger building if we hit a target goal. Mike was instrumental in the team achieving that goal. David followed through with his promise. The building was named the “Fun Factory”. Mike was the “FUN” in the Fun Factory! Mike would do anything to help, not only at work but if you needed help with a project at home. Always a smile, a deep belly laugh and wonderful chef. The bucket of guts for lunch is a cherished memory. My deepest sympathies to the entire Wolfe family.

  7. Cousin Mike was always the brightest one in the room.
    We had many laughs when we camped at the race tracks. Many beers and great food also.
    Sorry for the Family’s loss.

    • I got to know Mike about 47 yrs ago, Mike always liked to have fun and laugh.
      I always enjoyed running into him somewhere, he would always bring something up from past and we would laugh.
      We also did some trading over the years, when he lived out on Pulver road in the late 70s he had a big stereo with Altec Lansing speakers he loved to jam on that thing. Great guy!
      I’m definitely going to miss seeing you around Mike.
