Thomas R. Wolf, 58

Thomas R, Wolf, 58, passed away Friday, Aug. 5, 2011.

He is survived by his devoted and loving wife Cindy, his two beloved children Brandon and Megan, and his faithful canine companion Casino.

He truly was the love of the lives of his family and friends. A man who could light up a room with his smile and wit, laughter and humor, and overbrimming common decency. A faithful and loving husband, dedicated father, and cherished friend, he touched the lives of many more than could be mentioned in these passages.

Whether excitedly cooking an elaborate meal for family, entertaining those around him with a joke and a laugh, or lending a helping hand for anyone in need, the loss of Tom truly is a loss to anyone who had the incredible fortune to have known him.

Ever the strong and determined man, he faced adversity with an enviable confidence and ceaseless positivity, providing a necessary anchor for his loved ones.

His family would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who assisted in his care and support through these difficult times.

Taken from us too soon and after bravely battling through more than a decade’s worth of illness and hardship, Tom is finally at peace and at rest.
Tom is further survived by his mother Harriet Wolf of West Bend, his sister Kay (William) McNeer of Davenport, Iowa, his father-in-law and mother-in-law Cliff and Betty Yahr of West Bend and his brothers in-law and sisters in-law: Jeff (Shirley) Yahr of Kewaskum, Mike Yahr of Campbellsport and Scott (Lori) Yahr of West Bend. He is also survived by nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

He is preceded in death by his father Sylvester Wolf.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday, Aug. 10, 2011, at 7 p.m. at the Schmidt Funeral Home in West Bend with Chaplain David Stone officiating. Visitation will be Wednesday, at the funeral home from 4 p.m. until 6:45 p.m. Memorials are preferred.

God saw that he was getting tired, and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arm around him, and whispered, “Come with Me.”
With tear filled eyes we watched him suffer and fade away.
Although we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest.
God broke our heart to prove to us, He only takes the best.

The Schmidt Funeral Home in West Bend is serving the family.
