Jon Paul Wolfe lost his battle with brain cancer on October 14, 2015 at the age of 61 in the presence of loves ones. He was born on July 5, 1954 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma as the first boy of seven children to Paul and Freda Wolfe.
As the big brother of his family, he looked after his younger siblings, teaching them great lessons and playing practical jokes. After graduating from Putnam City West High School in 1972, Jon joined the U.S. Army where he proudly served as a soldier in the Corp of Engineers.
Jon married his beloved wife Linda in 1978 and they had two sons, Tristan Paul and Trevor Jon.
He was an avid outdoorsman, a dedicated coach and mentor, and a devoted, loving father and husband. Jon was enthusiastic about life, politics, and storytelling. He never met a stranger.
Jon was a Parrothead who loved a good boat drink. He was a member of the NRA, Edmond Sportsman’s Cub, and Tea Party Patriots.
He will join his father Paul Wolfe, all his grandparents, and countless birddogs in heaven. Continuing his legacy is his wife Linda; Tristan and wife Abby; son Trevor; birddog Duke and lap dog Sophie; six siblings including Jean Provost and husband Jerry, Leslie Morris and husband Mike, Gary Wolfe, Craig Wolfe and wife Christy, Teresa Wolf and husband Roman, Traci Wolfe and husband Bill Wiley; and, many nieces, nephews, uncles, and aunts.
He was close since childhood to Terry Stauffer; Gene Gibson; Danny Lorret; Don Crowder; and, Rocky Hammack. Jon was a mentor to many “sons” who he coached and played Mario Cart with for more than 30 years.
Jon’s memorial service will be held on October 24 at 10 a.m. at Castle Falls (820 N. MacArthur Blvd.) in Oklahoma City. The family asks those attending to wear a Hawaiian shirt or OU attire as Jon would have preferred.
