Robert David Wolf was born August 12, 1932 in Columbus, Ohio, the eldest son of Robert and Dorothy Wolf.  He was raised in southern Michigan on a farm, and graduated Parma High school in 1949. He moved to Columbus where he met his beloved wife Eleanor Brown.  They were married in 1954 while Bob was serving in the military (Army).  After the military, he attended Michigan State University where he received his BA in Business.  After graduation from college, he was a Field Manager for a large corporation covering the Rocky Mountain states.  In 1968 he and his family moved to Montana and he took on the profession of Law Enforcement where he served 26 year in different capacities.  He served as Juvenile Parole Officer, Deputy Sheriff, Under Sheriff, and a Criminal Investigator for the state of Montana.

Bob and Eleanor traveled thousands of miles with their motor home/camper, enjoying camping and seeing the sights.  They would often just take off in a direction, not really sure where it would lead, but they always enjoyed the adventure.  Bob loved to hunt and fish, shopping in out of the way antique shops, visiting museums and historical sites. Day long drives in the Montana mountains were very common, especially when family members came to visit.  Bob and Eleanor were charter members of the Red Pin Society. 

He was preceded in death by his wife Eleanor, son Michael, and a grandson, James Richard Wolf.  He leaves 2 sons, Robert (Chris), Scottsbluff, NE and Thomas (Missoula, MT); 9 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, 2 great-great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
