    Grandpa, I will always remember opening the front door and seeing you standing there with 2 or 3 cases of waxed beans or cream corn saying ” Oh hi HONEY, these were on sale so I brought yous some.” If for some reason we were not home when you stoped by we knew you had been there if a box of mixed vegitables or bag of garden goods was left. I will miss you. Rachel

    I knew Joe back when I lived in Rapid River, and my folks owned Ray’s Market. His brother, John, is a good friend and was a great golfing buddy of ours for many years. Please accept our sympathies/condolences.

    Joe was a great help in learning the insurance business back in 1985. He was fun and funny. I loved his homemade hot mustard I believe or maybe it was horseradish…time does its toll…God Bless

    Saddened today when during my daily trip via internet into local news to see obit. on Mr. Wolfe. Quickly I recalled memories of seeing him so often as we stopped on superior avenue. One nice man, understanding, caring, and what a tribute to him that he raised such a family of great people.

    My condolences to the family. Joe sr. was one fine person!

    I wanted to say that we all are very sorry to hear of Uncle Joe’s passing. I know that he is at peace now. Although I haven’t seen Joe in a long time, I have some good memories of him, including a time many years ago when he took Joey and I sledding. God bless.
