John Fredrick Wolfe, 72, of Omaha, Nebraska, passed away unexpectedly April 6, 2021. Born in San Francisco, California, then moved to Omaha when he was 14 and attended Benson High School.
He enlisted in the Army infantry during Vietnam and received a Purple Heart.
John returned to Omaha to work as a mason for the Bricklayers Union. He joined the Bill W. Fellowship in 1984 where he created life changing friendships that he cherished every day. Within those friendships, John found lasting purpose and was always available to take a phone call from a friend.
John settled in Omaha since his daughter was here, although he was never short on traveling during his lifetime. This past winter he was gone from October until Easter Sunday. Once Omaha weather was 70 and warm, he came back from Arizona. John traveled a long distance in a few days while he was not feeling well. He was determined to be back to Omaha where his family and friends were waiting. He passed away camping in the Loess Hills two days after he came back. This was one of his favorite camping locations. Over the last few years, he was not able to hike but he still enjoying the views and being in nature.
John was proud of his daughter, happy to see his granddaughter graduate high school last year and impressed with his grandson knowing all about heavy machinery at the age of 3. He enjoyed fishing, being with his brother, and with his family as much as possible. He loved when his best-friend had fires in the summer, the 48th Street holiday picnics, to chess in the club basement. John is always up for a new adventure and spiritual journey and we can not wait to meet with him again.
John is survived and loved by his daughter, Sara Wolfe (Nate); granddaughter, Jade; grandson, Gavin; brother, Ron Crouch (Marlene); and many other family members.
