Bill was born in Highland County on April 3, 1943, the son of the late Charles and Clara Ellen Smith Wolfe. His life was spent entirely in New Vienna.
Bill was a very caring, giving and loving husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle, and friend. He was a member of the Mt. Olive Church of Christ, where he served as an Elder and Treasurer for over 40 years.

Bill was very active in the lives of his children and grandchildren, who were the highlight of his life. Whenever possible, he attended sporting events of his grandchildren, watching and going to the Cincinnati Reds games, collecting sports memorabilia, and enjoyed being at all of the family gatherings.
Bill loved the time he spent selling Avon and talking to all his costumers and friends.
