Robert Wolf Obituary
Robert M. Wolf of Bay City Michigan surprised us all by passing away, still young at 91. After his wife Shirley Peters Wolf died in 1987, Bob assumed the role of Head Chef for his children Kristin, Steve, Martha, Tony, Maggie, Kate, Veronica, Molly and Jennifer (Steve passed in 1979 and Molly in 2015) and their spouses Shawn, Taylor, Marco, Tom, and David. Thirteen wonderful grandchildren and four greatgrandchildren all enjoyed his playfulness. Bob was global before that became a catchphrase and left friends and family in Italy, Mexico and Trinidad, loved Mozart and Verdi, Goethe and Garrison Keillor, grappa, films, football, current events, travel and friends of every age, color and background. His curiosity knew no bounds. Bob never got old; he just got better and more curious as time went on. Bob served his country in World War II and nurtured his family in Evanston until Monday November 20th, 2017. "Il Lobo's" life was as full as a glass of his famous Martinis and while we miss him keenly, to feel his presence we need only look to our love of music, the arts, nature, food, wine and each other in order to be with him. A celebration will be held on Friday, December 29 to bid Addio, Adios, and Auf Wiedersehen to il grande Roberto/Dad/Nonno Bob. Memorial gifts in Bob's name may be sent to Horizon House, 2000 Plank Road, Peru, IL 61354-1659 www.horizonhouseperu.org.
