Dean Wilson Wolfe Obituary

Dean Wilson Wolfe (Wolfie, good old Dean) passed away on June 30, 2018.

Beloved husband and best friend of Kate McKay, he is also survived by sisters Tracy Walters and Kim Wolfe; good friends Mike Sarf, Christine Sarf, Kerrigan McKay, all the McKays; many nieces and nephews; and Sara and Fiona, his Labrador retrievers.

Dean had an encyclopedic knowledge of cars, photography, history and Reading, Pa. A shed builder par excellence, he weathered so many assaults on his health that he said he was on his 3rd cat life. His eternal and unquenchable good humor with a sweet smile for all was always present. Dean was always on hand to help friends and strangers alike. He graduated from the University of Virginia, with a degree in architecture, and was proud of it. He was a respected member of the Swarthmore Rotary. I’m glad I met you, too, Dean – Love, Kate.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend his Life Celebration on Friday, July 6, at the Cavanagh Patterson Family Funeral Home, 43 E. Baltimore Avenue, Media, PA 19063, where his family will receive friends from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m., with a Remembrance Service beginning at 4:30 p.m.
