My deepest condolences for your loss.
I had the pleasure of having Bill as a professor in 2011. I was shocked and heart-broken when I saw his picture on the news tonight. He was a kind and generous man who went out of his way to ensure his students had every opportunity to succeed. He will be missed greatly.

My girlfriend and I had the privilege of having Professor Wolff as a professor for his government class. I knew the first day I met him, he was going to be an amazing professor. He was always so happy with life! He used to tell us stories and made everything he taught so interesting. Even after his class we saw him and talked to him he was so educated and an amazing human being. I am truly sad to hear that he was taken from this world. My deepest sympathies to his little girl and family. He always talked about his family especially his brother in class. Rest in Peace Professor Wolff. You will be missed.

I am still in shock over this. I cried when I found out. This man was so honest and caring. I had him for just one class after he was extremely recommended. He was so attentive, fun and live! He will be greatly missed and prayers go out for his family. God bless! You will be missed Mr Wolff!

Unfortunately, I did not have the pleasure to meet him but I know his brother and if they say good things about him it's because he must have been an excellent person. Erick, you know that Jesus had a very unjust death and a death on the cross but He resurrected for the love He has for us, and for that love I wish that He may resurrect him and give him eternal life. Now I know he is better than ever, he is now closer to the Father. Let's pray that he may soon see that radiant face, full of love.
May God bless his family and may He grant them a prompt resignation.

I am incredibly saddened by Professor Wolff's passing. He was a very passionate person and had immense knowledge and wisdom he gladly shared at any time. He cared a great deal for his students. I loved how whenever he and I talked after class or in his office, the conversation never grew stagnant. You were an amazing person, Professor Wolff. I will never forget you. Rest in Peace.

I never got to tell his mom & dad that they could be proud of Willie, that they did a terrific job bringing him up. I never told Sonya, who, like Willie, was my advisee from the first day at OLLU, that he was a good guy, but a teacher does not talk of brothers and put pressure on the younger sister. Sonya, please know, like you, he is remembered with great affection. Sure, as a teacher Willie could be frustrating sometimes, but also a joy many more times, and he put up with my attempts to teach without a complaint, and, yes, he had that smile that made you smile too. The last time I saw him he was visiting the Lake and telling about his running for office in El Paso and he gave me a hug as he left. It is with me still. I never met his daughter but I want her to know her dad was definitely one of the people many others will remember because he made as much a difference in their lives as they tried to help in his. I wish I could take away the pain of his loss but I do not know how. I guess all I can hope is that the pain will become somehow manageable and the good memories of Willie will provide comfort even as he is missed

I can't believe this, this is so sad. I had him 2 semesters ago and I've never seen such enthusiastic and caring person. He loved teaching us about government and even gave us advice on how the stock market worked. I will never forget him and I hope he rests well in the heavens where he deserves to be. RIP Mr. Wolf thank you for everything.

Dear Mr Wolff,

It breaks my heart that you're no longer with us and that so many people will miss out on your wisdom. I always looked forward to going to Political Science with you. I always learned something. You always gave wonderful advice and life lessons. You always had a smile on your face. Thank you for everything. You're the best. I'll miss you and never forget you.

My sincere condolences to all of Will's family and friends. I remember him as a gentle, good-hearted man, a very deep-thinker and caring of others. I am always proud of my ex-students' accomplishments, but Will was someone special - overcoming self-doubt to blossom after graduating from OLLU. I mention his story to current students on a regular basis, especially to students not quite sure what they want to do "when they grow up". I always enjoyed the occasional phone calls when we would catch up on life. Those will be missed.

It's so hard to believe when someone you have known passes away. Even if you haven't seen them in such a long time, you still feel the lose.. I believe everyone we meet stays with us and becomes part of us. I'm lucky to have had more good than bad people share experiences with me.

Will was not a close friend, but he loved and was loved by part of my family. I was able to know him because of that and am glad. It saddens me that he is gone but I am proud that he was able to touch so many people's lives.

My thoughts and prayers are with your parents, sister and brothers who you loved deeply. With your precious girl who will not know all the great things about her daddy that those of us who loved him knew. I will forever miss you quirky sense of humor, your kind heart, and your warm words. I'm blessed to have 25 years of memories to carry with me until we meet again some day dear friend.

I was so sorry to hear the news of Will's passing. It seems like just yesterday that we were working on undergraduate studies at Our Lady of the Lake. I remember him for his kindness and his sense of humor. Sending condolences to his family and friends.

Mr. Wolff,
had I known that Thursday after class would be the last time I would see and speak to you, I would have told you how much you meant to me. You were my favorite professor. I will never forget all those conversations we had outside of class. You were always sweet enough to listen to me and give me courage about many things. Even though we knew each other for only a few months, it was enough time for me to consider you a dear friend.. because you came into my life and you made it better than it was before.
Remember you for always I will...

Will-How can this be? I am so very impressed by your many accomplishments and happy that you had a little girl. Rest in Peace my sweet friend.

Dear Wolff family, Will was my friend and such a tremendously good person. Although we hadn't spoken in years, I kept up with him through Lisa S and Scott. He is greatly missed. I will never forget how proud I was to be his Homecoming date our Sophomore year and how much fun we had. Mr. Wolff, my Dad still talks about the discount you gave him on his car repair because I was a friend of Wills. I and my family feel your loss and send our condolences. Please let me know if we can be of help.

Heartfelt condolences to his family. He was such a passionate teacher you couldn't help but to feel enthusiastic about his class. He was a truly endearing teacher and a quite peculiar one at that. Made the whole class laugh with his silly jokes about government and even laughed at ours. Now, because of him, I have nightmares where I never attended a class I paid for! May God bless you all with peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.
