So sorry to read this news. Remember his wry sense of humour. Condolences to his family and friends.
I would first like to convey my condolences to the Wolfe family at the loss of their Father. I grew up on what was called at the time Moose Hill Rd, just a short walk up the road from the Wolfe homestead. I remember going down to their place as a kid to hang around with Frank who is my age. At the time they lived in a small white house, and there was always something going on, whether it was looking after the live stock or other things that kept the family moving. I remember Lawrence as a man that was always working at something, cattle, well rings, the garage, always on the go. Lawrence always had his boys doing something, he instilled a strong work ethic in his sons which I think gave them the drive to do what they wanted in their lives.
My heart felt prayers go out to all in the Wolfe family, Moose Hill Rd is missing one of its strongest sons.
