Aunt Freda, Karen, Janice, Joyce, Francis Jr., Bruce and families: We are very sorry to hear of Uncle Francis passing. I have many fond memories of him when growing up and in later years. I enjoyed our many discussions about Chev vs Ford over the years and had planned to take him for a drive in the ’36 Ford we recently purchased. I knew he was going to ride me hard for finally buying a Ford, but I was going to have the final laugh because it is powered by Chevy. RIP Uncle Francis you are going to be greatly missed.

Uncle Francis was such a kind, generous and fun person who welcomed us (along with Aunt Freda and their kids) into their home in the late 1960s. I remember Uncle Francis and my Dad watching the moon landing on TV on Uncle Francis’s patio. He was always of good cheer, always with a smile and a joke. He was a wonderful man, and I will remember him with great fondness. Thank you, Uncle Francis, for the wonderful memories along the N.S. shores.

Bruce and family,
I played and came up through my minor hockey years with Bruce so Francis would be there at the old rink every practise and for sure every game. I remember “Mr. Wolf” as always with a smile and there to horse around with coming and going from the ice. A true rink rat with his other rink rat buddies Scotty Rogers, Bobby Young and Lanny Delong. I haven’t laid eyes on Francis I bet in thirty years but Francis Wolfe was a pure sole. And I know Francis, Scotty and Lanny are all together…..hanging out swapping stories just like old times. My condolences.
Billy Tutty in Calgary
Thinking of you everyday grampy . missing hearing your voice. Love you.
