'Frank' Wolfe

Thomas Franklin Wolfe, 79, of Lone Oak went to be with his Lord and Savior on June 10, 2014. Masonic graveside services under the direction of Ingram Funeral Home in Quinlan will be at 10 a.m. Friday at the I.O.O.F. Cemetery in Quinlan.

Visitation is from 6 to 8 p.m. today at the funeral home. 

Frank was born to the late James Otho Wolfe and Mildred Butler Wolfe on July 3, 1934, in Quinlan. He graduated from Quinlan High School in 1951. He married Rose Jones Wolfe on Dec. 8, 1961. They lived and raised their family in Quinlan until they moved to Lone Oak in 1984.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters Larie Sneed Cantrell, Bille Wolfe Tanner, Katherine Wolfe Criswell, and Bobbie Sime; and his brother, Laverel Sneed.

He always had a garden and several horses, chickens and various other animals at his home. Frank had many lifelong friends and he had a true knack for storytelling. He had an unbelievable memory and could retell stories his parents and grandparents had told him with remarkable accuracy.

He retired from E-Systems in Greenville after 35 years of service as a contract liaison manager. After his retirement he enjoyed raising game chickens and gardening with his tractor.

Frank loved horse racing throughout his life. He attended as many races as possible, and in later life he watched them on television all of the time.

His remarkable memory allowed him to tell you all about the owners, the trainers, the jockeys and the horses. He even predicted the winner of the Kentucky Derby many times.

Frank enjoyed being involved with his grandchildren’s lives. They dearly loved their “Poppa” and looked forward to spending good times with him at the farm.

Frank is loved and will be missed by his wife, Rose Jones Wolfe of Lone Oak; son Clif Wolfe of Lone Oak; daughter Cathleen Wolfe Green of Plano; granddaughters Nicole Rose Green and Lindsey Ferris Green of Plano and Donna Michelle Runner of Minnesota; a grandson, Ryan Christopher Green of Plano; great-grandson Ethan Ryan Tinsley of Plano; sister Carolyn Wolfe Strickland of Quinlan; a brother, Daniel Otho Wolfe of Wichita Falls; and numerous nieces and nephews.
