Why, Why, Why.
How hard is it to pay attention while driving.
How very sad. I never had the chance to meet Father Wolf, but I know he did a lot for the local community. My condolences to his family, immediate and extended.
Wow, how sad
Prayers, condolences to the family, friends and congregation. Very sad.
Father Wolf and La Donn were awesome people. Father Wolf came over right away to pray over my son who was a preemie when we thought he had to be transfered. He also baptized that same baby in August. He really cared about everyone! Father Wolf and La Donn will be missed but the good news is they are with the Lord. My heart and prayers go out to their family.
Very, very sad and tragic. I know that intersection well having been a LEO in that area in the 70's. It would not surprise me if alcohol was a factor in the red light violation.
Our Hearts are so saddened, with this loss. Both Father Wolf, and his very precious wife Donnie are in my eye's Hero's of our community. They have tirelessly reached out to our community and it's needs. They had their eye's on the people who didn't have much, those who were hurting, many times hopeless and they brought them HOPE. The needy, homeless, hurting people saw in them what the Bible call's real Christianity. I am a better person because they were my firends, I will miss them emencely.
What a tragedy. Thoughs and prayers to their children and congregation members. God Bless.
Shalom to the family, an immeasurable loss to them and for the rest of us also.
My condolences to his family and the church. A tragic tale that would have so easily been avoided by a tad more diligence on the part of one inattentive driver. Let's all keep our eyes on the road!
From a Reader's email: "This is a tragedy. Father Wolf was a wonderful, caring individual and a dedicated member of the priesthood who worked tirelessly to try and ease the suffering of the homeless in the Mother Lode. He and his wife will be missed. Our prayers for them and the family left behind."
Father Wolf was truly a "man after God's own Heart." His legacy is one of kindness, grace, and generosity to our county. To say that he and LaDonn will be missed by our community is an understatement like no other. I have no idea how they will be able to hold any services for them anywhere but the Mother Lode Fairgrounds so deeply are they loved.
Father Wolf took a bold step in Christ, even against the whishes of some in the parish and he opened the Church doors at night to the homeless. Bravo and happy trails to a True Christian man. May the community lift his family as he lifted the community.
So sorry for the loss to the family and the community. Father Wolf was someone who practiced his faith rather than just making speeches about what others should do. The homeless community has been helped so much by the Red Church programs. Bless you, Father Wolf and LaDonn.
Horrible tragedy for the Family, and the Community! Heartfelt prayers!!!
Father Wolf-What a kind man he was-he touched so many lives-a grim reminder that we are here for such a short time-cherish your family, your friends, nature, creatures-and most of all be kind-
My condolences to the family and the congregation of the Red Church.
Father Wolf married Loni and I in 2003. He was a wonderful man, and Priest.
Father Wolf and his wife will not only be missed by his family, but a grateful community in which he left a lasting impression.
This is overwhelmingly sad. He and La Donn were what you would call True Christians. I disagreed with Father Wolf on several issues but he was a man of principles. When discussing those issues with him the decibel level remained low and we parted friends that evening while agreeing on nothing. I will humbly pray that God welcome their souls through those gates. But there is no need. They would never say so, but they had earned their place in Heaven long ago. Pray for help handling the loss to their family and our community.
Goodbye... to a great man of God,Husband, Father and Author. And his lovely Wife.
My deepest sympathies to his children,family,congregation and the people he touched.
Great Family, good people, our prayers and thoughts are with you.
My condolences to the family as well Fr. Wolf was a great man. I'm curious though, why his and his wife's memorial service will not be held at the Red Church. Just wondering.
I served them both in retail and they were always quiet and polite. I didn't personally know them but I watch them from a distance feed the hungry and supply needs. What more can be said of a person who loves their neighbors more than they loved themselves. I hope the church will carry on his practices so those they loved continue to be cared for. I know they are missed. I will miss their graciousness to.
Norseman, hundreds shown up as expected for the service even during rain. The red church was too small for this gathering of those who cared.
