Obituary of Christopher Van Wolfe
Appleton: Christopher Van “Chris” Wolfe, age 72, fell asleep in death on May 2, 2020 at his home. He was born March 2, 1948 in Medina to the late William and Marjorie (Jesson) Wolfe. He was a devoted member of Jehovah’s Witnesses. He spoke often of seeing his son Justin in the resurrection on a paradise Earth. He was a hard worker, loyal, selfless and humble man. He built his family business from the ground up and “never worked a day in his life”. Chris loved to work on tractors and anything mechanical and it was often said, if he can’t fix it, you don’t need it. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his son Justin and brother Roger. Chris is survived by his “precious pearl” of 17 years, Larissa, whom he married October 11, 2003. Also surviving are his children, Christina (Chris) Gillinger, Lindsay (Simon Tew) Sabo, Penny (Clifford) Wolfe-Gammon, Jared Wolfe, Hallie (Stefan) Walters, Christopher (Isis) Wolfe, step-son, Andy (Carlie) Michalak, several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, siblings, William (late Patricia) Wolfe and Marilyn (Terry) Luscher. Private interment will be held at Hartland Central Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Chris’s name may be made to World Wide Work of Jehovah’s Witnesses at www.jw.org. Mr. Wolfe’s arrangements have been entrusted to the Kenneth H. Sherrie Funeral Home 6139 East Ave. Newfane, NY 14108.
