I have many fond memories of the Wolf family--going back to the days at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Larue--and, of course, his children at Elgin High School and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  With my sincere sympathy, Rita Rubeck Headington Parker, EHS Librarian '65-'96

I have so many wonderful memories of my Grandpa;playing Othello and cards together, having sleepovers in their yellow spare bedroom, riding in his gray Buick listening to old country music, going garage sale hopping early Saturday mornings, and so many more.  Rest easy, Grandpa, and know you are loved.  Thank you for being the wonderful man you were for us all.

Dick was a wonderful man. Randy and I loved him dearly. I still have the wooden pedestal he custom made for me years ago as a lamp stand. May he rest in peace.
