Ellis was a great neighbor. We loved having him over especially for our children's birthday parties. He took a picture of Josh's 1st birthday and framed it for us. As well as a photo he took in 1938 in Boiling Springs across from a home I grew up in during the 70sand 80s. He was thoughtful like that and will be missed.

Our most senior club member, Ellis Wolfe, passed away this week. He was a regular at our events and get-togethers. We celebrated his 99th birthday this past February and he drove his Spitfire to the last business meeting we had in March. Ellis was an inspiration to all of us and taught us that you are never too old to do the things you love. He will be missed by members of the Central Pennsylvania Triumph Club.

Ellis was a good friend, mentor and fellow photographer. His 1992 book - Images From Wolfes Den - shared many of his accomplishments and stunning photographs. His Black and White work was unmatched. His father got him started in photography. The preface to the book provides many quotes and observations. One that stood out was He catches these blacks and whites in such a warm and wonderful way that you feel as if you could reach out and break a blossom off the cherry tree, or walk through the weathered door of a charming old shed. How true that was!

Diana and Barbara, my siblings and I were saddened to hear of your dads passing. We have fond memories of his visits with our parents, Charles and Lucille Vogelsong; while Dad passed in 2012, we lost Mom just 4 days before your father. We were trying to recall how they met, and we think it may have been through the Harrisburg Radio Club. Your dad was a kind, friendly man with a ready smile; Dad enjoyed their friendship. Our sincere condolences to you and your families.

(Mike had your mother for bio at Cedar Cliff and remembers her as a very good, dedicated teacher.)
