Robert Wolf had a wonderful life and was born in Fort Dodge, Iowa. Born to Paul and Pat (Schumacher) Wolf, he was the youngest sibling to his two older brothers Nathan and Jason. Growing up in Urbandale, Iowa and Pella, Iowa, he was surrounded by friends, where there was never a dull moment. His days were full of playing baseball, basketball, soccer, fishing, swimming, shooting pool, jumping off the cliffs at Red Rock Lake and, of course, getting into mischief. Robert enjoyed the outdoors, no matter the season. In high school Robert was a wrestler and a football player. Robert was a very proud father of three children who meant everything to him. His world revolved around them and his love of good food. His children brought him so much joy as they have and continue to grow up. Some of his favorite memories were introducing them to the things he loved...playing card games, fishing, watching the Hallmark Channel, cooking, grilling, and eating. He loved the Green Bay Packers!
Robert was an active member of the Pella Lodge #55 Masons. Robert served as the local Pheasants Forever Chapter President for the last 5 years, providing significant leadership to the Chapters yearly youth hunt program. One of Robert’s greatest accomplishments is the accumulation of an extremely large group of the wisest, funniest, kind, creative, talented, sharing, caring and all around-fantastic people, called his friends. Robert ‘Wolfy” was a friend to everyone, listening without judgment, giving great hugs and offering advice. Friends knew when he answered his phone ‘How is the prettiest girl in Pella doing?’, he was talking with his mom. Robert talked often about his mom’s home cooked meals and his lunches with his Dad and the time spent with his kids. Robert’s advice to others was to surround yourself with great people, and your life, like his, will be tremendously blessed.
