  1. It is obvious that he was loved greatly by all of you. What a special man. May your loving memories keep you remembering him forever.

  2. Dear Wolf family,

    I met your dad while working the summers at Altobello over 30 years ago. Such a kind man. We laughed a lot and he shared so many stories with me. It was clear that he loved his family. My prayer are with you. I am privileged to have known Nev, and will remember him always. God’s peace be with you.

  3. Still thinking about your Dad and what a hoot he was. I’m so glad Richard and I got to be at your wedding, Judy, so that we could get to know your amazing family. I think Richard has a way of bringing out the ‘ornery’ in everyone and Neville had that fun side to him. He was such a hard worker and I loved seeing his attention to detail. I’m praying for the whole family. You’ve lost some quality people!
