Kelly David Wolfe, age 52, of Dallas, TX passed away at Central Methodist Hospital January 16, 2013 as the result of a tragic motorcycle accident. Kelly was born August 14, 1960 in Gary, IN. He is survived by his loving parents: Jack and Judy Colville of Valparaiso, IN. Kelly is also survived by his three beloved sons: Christopher Wolfe, Neil Wolfe, and Mason Wolfe; his four cherished siblings: Brete Wolfe, Jeff Wolfe, Jack Colville, and Mary Colville; loving nephew, Brandon Wolfe; and many special friends including: Dwayne Howerton, Brant Stovall, Susan Wolfe, Damon Benton, Joan Sramek, Mary Gallon, Bill Ingle, Laurie Fish, and David Jerry. Kelly began his career in Emergency Services as a volunteer for the Midlothian TX Fire Dept. and after attending Paramedic School #7, became a full-time Firefighter/Paramedic for the North Richland Hills Fire Dept. Kelly soon realized that his passion for his EMS work would take him to great heights-the sky! Kelly began working as a flight paramedic for CareFlite, where after many years of service, he was awarded with the prestigious Global Flight Paramedic of the Year Award from the AAMS. Kelly loved working at CareFlite and spent 17 years saving lives and treasuring friendships. After his tenure out among the clouds, Kelly began his esteemed career as the Director of Education for Flight/Ground Paramedics and the University of Texas-Arlington. Kelly was a true educator and loved training his students. Kelly was also a Harley Davidson enthusiast. He enjoyed spending his free time with his brothers from Boozefighter's Motorcycle Club Chapter # 169 and his many friends from Cooter Brown's in Burleson, TX. Kelly accomplished many things with his career and was loved by many friends but his greatest accomplishments were his three sons Chris, Neil, and Mason whom he loved more than anything in the world. There were two memorial services held in Kelly's honor in Texas that were attended by over 700 people. He was well loved and will be terribly missed. Kelly's family followed his wishes for organ donation and in life, as in death, Kelly is still saving lives. Kelly Wolfe will always be our hero. Memorials may be made to Mason Wolfe College Fund at any Wells Fargo Bank.
