Obituary of Daniel Joseph Wolf
Dan Wolf, One of the Best
Daniel Joseph Wolf passed away on July 9, 2019. He was 25 years young, and has left us broken hearted, but grateful for having had him bless our lives. He was our son, our brother, our grandson, our nephew, our cousin, our friend, our fighter, our famed artist and our talented musician. Danny struggled with opiate addiction on and off for years and unfortunately lost his battle. He will be in our hearts forever and we will never stop sharing his story.

Danny was born on a beautiful March day in 1994. He was the second son to bless the Wolf family. As a child…and an adult…he loved mastering his favorite video games. Dan enjoyed skateboarding and riding his dirt bike and quad. He was an ace at Chess… there were few, if any that could beat him. He spent countless hours on Lake Wallenpaupack with his family and friends. He loved it there…whether he was boating, skiing, tubing, or just hanging by the fire pit in the back yard. Dan loved nature…the lake, waterfalls, parks, trails. He traveled the world and our beautiful country....just recently going on a trip out West with his dad. He was a sweet kid, kind, caring and always good hearted, he loved to make people laugh…he lit up every room he walked into, and made all of our lives better. These traits stayed with him forever.
He graduated Randolph High in 2012. Those who knew Dan know he was gifted artistically. His drawings were perfection. His music…incredible. He learned to play the guitar almost instantly and could sing and play music that would warm you heart and make you feel at ease. As talented as he was, and despite his struggles, he faced what he had to head on, was brave and did his work. With the constant love and support of his family, Dan turned it all around. In the past year, he was excited for his fresh start. He was doing great and finally pursuing his dreams! He was accepted into DAVE (Digital Animation & Visual Effects) school and headed to Orlando Florida. He was kicking ass and taking names. Maybe God needed an artist; maybe we don’t know the whole plan. What we know is that we have lost one of the best and find comfort knowing we will see him again one day.
Daniel was a dear friend to so many. He treated everyone like family and always knew how to brighten up a room. He loved his dog Mick and was lucky to have him in his life for so long. With every guitar we hear and every sun that sets, we will think of you Daniel.
He leaves beautiful memories to his Mom Cheryl Brady Wolf and Dad Joseph Wolf; his brother Bryan Wolf (fiancé, Kelsey MacNaught); his Grandmother Marie Wolf; Aunt Linda Wolf Eckert, Uncle Bob, Cousins Kyle and Todd Eckert; Aunt Tracy, Uncle Russell, Cousin Rusty and Cousin Acadia French, Uncle Jamie, Aunt Lori, and Cousin Autumn Brady; Uncle Andy Clauer; Aunt Cathy, Uncle Scott Conant; and many, many more loving relatives, friends, and acquaintances.
We all love you soo much Dan. May you Rest in Peace.
