Roger Lynn Wolfe, 71, of Kingwood, passed away June 3, 2020 after a courageous attempt at a lung transplant at UPMC, after a long battle with Alpha-1 lung disease.

He was born April 5, 1949, in the mountains of Kingwood, son of the late Erbie and Georgia (Metheny) Wolfe the ninth of ten children. He is mourned by his partner of 47 years, Nillia Sapp, they were blessed with two boys, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren; Roger Wolfe Jr. and spouse, Marsha; grandchildren, Dennis and Dylan Wolfe and, Anthony Wolfe and spouse, Nicole Sulick-Wolfe, grandchildren, Miranda and Aaron Wolfe and   Alexandria Sulick, great grandchildren, Axton and Waylon DuPont all of Kingwood; by six sisters and two brothers; Florence Hillery of Mentor OH, Loretta Comer and spouse, of Medina OH, Hubert Wolfe and spouse of Kingwood, Marie Wolfe of Lady Lake, FL, Harland Wolfe of Kingwood, Vivian “Sue“ Gagen of Phoenixville, PA, Phyllis Hamon of Kingwood and Dianna Duesler and spouse of Lady Lake, FL, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.

Roger was an avid deer hunter, a carpenter and an antique collector. He was a jack of all trades and could tinker with almost anything. He loved to go to sales and find his treasures, even with the love he had for his hobbies, nothing compared to the love he had for his family. He was very close to his long time love Nillia, his children, siblings, and friends. Roger was quick to give advice and helped both sons with every aspect of their lives. Often he could be found on the front porch with a cup of coffee in his hands speaking with those he held dear. He was a strategizer and excellent at card games.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by;  a brother, Paul Wolfe, grandchild, Alana Sulick, brother, in-law, George Hillery; four nephews, Shawn Wolfe, ,Jeff Comer, Dennis Hillery and Chris Johnson; and a niece, Kimberly Wolfe.
