COLUMBIA - Funeral Services for Walter K. Wolfe, Jr., 90, will be held at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Dunbar Funeral Home, Devine Street Chapel, 3926 Devine Street, Columbia, SC. Pastor Kenneth Prill will speak at the service. Interment will be in Greenlawn Memorial Park, 845 Leesburg Road, at 3:30 p.m. Family visitation will be held at Dunbar Funeral Home at 2:00 p.m. prior to the service.

Mr. Wolfe was called by the Lord on Tuesday, September 26, 2017. He was the son of the late Walter K. Wolfe, Sr. and Cornelia Whetstone Wolfe of Fort Motte, S.C. and was husband to the late Ruby Hayes Wolfe.

Mr. Wolfe served honorably in the United States Army during the Second World War. He worked in the health care field and retired from the S.C. State Hospital after forty years of service. As a child of the Great Depression, he was both strong-willed and frugal to a fault, yet never turned away those in need. No one ever left his house hungry.

He is survived by his three children, Walter K. Wolfe III, John Michael Wolfe (Betsy Wolfe), and Mary Wolfe Walker (John Albert Walker); two grandchildren, Amanda Wolfe Sites (Brent Sites) and Stephanie T. Wolfe; and two great-grandchildren, Shelby E. Sites and Ryder B. Sites.

Mr. Wolfe was a Christian and loved the Lord. He was loved and respected, and will be missed and remembered by all who knew him.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, 262 Danny Place Drive, Memphis, TN 38105; or the Columbia Humane Society, 121 Humane Lane, Columbia, SC 29209.
