Robert ‘Bob’ Rush Wolf

NORMAN — Robert Rush “Bob” Wolf died Wednesday morning, Oct. 30, 2013, at the Oklahoma Veterans Center in Norman after a long illness. He was born at Norman Municipal Hospital on June 16, 1929, to Leland and Lena (Allen) Wolf.

After graduating from Noble High School, he enlisted in the Army and served in combat in Korea. Upon his return, he married Dorothy Jean “Jeanie” Morris and, thanks to the GI Bill, became the first member of his family to earn a college degree.

As a young man, he worked as a ranch hand, rodeo rider, truck driver, furniture mover, sign painter and carpenter. He spent most of his professional career organizing and publicizing community economic development projects throughout Oklahoma. After he retired, he operated several businesses of his own.

He knew a little bit about pretty much everything and a whole lot about a few things, including music, history, meteorology, vegetable gardening, politics and telling a good story.

Bob is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Leland “Butch” and Candace of Columbia, Mo.; sons Joe and Paul and daughter-in-law Elaine, all of Norman; daughters Kathy (Kay) Easley of Sulphur and Kelley of Arlington Heights, Ill.; five grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.

Friends are invited to share their memories at 2 p.m. Sunday at The Deli, 309 White St. in Norman.

A memorial service will be 11 a.m. Monday at the West Wind Unitarian Universalist Congregation at 1309 W. Boyd St. in Norman.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, the Oklahoma Democratic Party, Disabled American Veterans and Second Chance Animal Sanctuary.
