Delman L. Wolf Obituary

Delman L. Wolf of Cromwell passed away Saturday, (August 2, 2014). Born in Graham, Missouri, on July 23, 1931, the son of Edward Ernest and Helen Carpenter Leeper Wolf, Delman lived in Graham, Missouri, Palm Beach and Jacksonville, FL, Enfield and, in later years, Cromwell, CT. At the age of eighteen, he enlisted in the Air Force. Following active duty, he attended the University of Florida and worked for the federal government. After settling in Connecticut, he served for many years in the Reserves at Westover Air Force Base, rising to the rank of Lt. Colonel. He spent the majority of his professional career as a Tax Assessor in Enfield, Windsor and East Hartford. Del was kind and generous with his family and the many charities he supported, and was quick to offer time and support to his family. He had a quiet sense of adventure, and readily accepted opportunities to hike in Maine with his son, drive his camper miles to see his family in the Midwest or sample new dishes - even when prepared by his children. Consistently civic-minded, Delman volunteered with the Republican Party in Cromwell and at the polls during national and local elections. He served as a Commissioner with the Shaker Pines Fire District in Enfield and on the Board of Assessment Appeals in Cromwell. Delman enjoyed traveling, hiking, engaging in spirited political conversations, and spending time with family. Delman was predeceased by sisters Florine (Wolf) Tippett, Laveta (Wolf) Still, Lucille (Wolf) Wylie and brother Harley Wolf. He is survived by: daughter Angela Wolf and Andrew Newman of Middletown; son Michael Wolf and Anke Gruendel of Brooklyn, NY; daughter Susan Wolf and John Gregg of Winchester, MA; granddaughters Audrey and Gina Gregg; former wife and devoted friend Gail Wolf of Newington; daughter, Victoria Wolf Hershkovich of Jacksonville, FL; son, Curtis Wolf of Jacksonville, FL; and numerous nieces and nephews. Donations in Delman's memory may be made to Operation Homefront and Doctors without Borders. Private services will be held at a later date.
