James ‘Jim’ Michael Wolf

NORMAN — James ‘Jim’ Michael Wolf was born to John “Pete” and Louella (Marcotte) Wolf on Aug. 31, 1959, in Oklahoma City. He departed this life unexpectedly Sunday, Feb. 9, 2014, at his home in Noble.

Jim attended school at Western Heights and graduated with the class of 1977. He was employed with Fine Arts Engraving in Oklahoma City for 10 years before deciding to start his own business in the ink cartridge and printer business. He taught himself the business in his garage before venturing out into his own business.

He moved to Noble from Oklahoma City in 1995 and opened the Wolf Laser Business in 2000. He became very successful in the ink and printer business in Noble and quite the businessman for the Noble community. Jim loved Noble, and Noble loved Jim. He never met a stranger and always had a story to tell. He was an active member of the Noble Chamber of Commerce for many years and was recently elected to serve on the board of directors. He was honored in January for his dedicated service to the Chamber with the coveted “Above and Beyond” Award.

Jim was a leader and outspoken advocate in his “shop Noble” and “shop local” campaigns. Jim had compassion and enthusiasm for his business and community, always willing to step up and donate his time, merchandise and help for local events. Jim was motivated and focused to create a better Noble where individuals and businesses could prosper and succeed. He had been sharing with many locals his excitement about how the Noble Chamber was moving in new directions to help promote his “shop Noble” as one of its goals, adopting what he had long advocated.

Jim was quite the gun collector, watching Western movies and loved to polka dance. He enjoyed woodworking and leather tooling. Jim was of the Catholic faith.
