William Enoch Wolfe, 84, of Elizabethtown, residing in Sellersburg, Indiana, passed away Friday, Aug. 3, 2018, at Clark Memorial Hospital in Indiana.

He was known to most as "Uncle Bill," but he was Pap Pap Willie to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved watching sports, especially baseball and basketball.

He is survived by his only child, Pat Yingling (Tom) of Jeffersonville, Indiana; a brother, Michael Wolfe (Jelondia) of North Vernon, Indiana; two sisters, Janet Ratliff (Darrell) of Circleville, Ohio, and Kitty Williams of Wilmington, North Carolina; three grandchildren, Jennifer Taylor (John) of Sparks, Georgia, Victoria Sward (Kyle) of Lexington and Thomas Yingling (Rachel) of Moultrie, Georgia; eight great-grandchildren, Garrett, Preston, Karley, William, Ethan, Benjamin, Emma and Michael; and numerous nieces and nephews.
