Yale Harold Wolfe Jr., 83, of Warrenton, went to be with the Lord on Veterans Day, November 11, 2018, surrounded by his loving family.
He was the husband of Donna Hurrell; the father of Kathleen and Todd Wolfe, Yale Harold Wolfe III, Krista and James L. Seltzer, Patrick and Melissa Wolfe and Jennifer Wolfe; the brother of Joseph, Neil, Philip, Edward and Christa; the grandfather of 11, Molly, Eliza, Gavin, Carolyn, Eric, Katie, Blaire, Sheila, Sarah, Brendan, Ian, and a great-grandchild, Lyv Helen Wolfe.
Born on the Fort Monmouth, N.J., Army base on August 9, 1935, Yale was the son of the late Col. Yale H. and Helen (Kane) Wolfe. Growing up in an Army family, Yale went to many schools throughout the country and around the world. He attended Gonzaga High School in Washington, D.C., and Providence College in Rhode Island, earning a degree in accounting. Yale proudly served in the U.S. Army for three years and the U.S. Army Reserves for five years.
Along with his first wife Lynne W. Schreher, he raised their five children in the Northern Virginia suburbs before moving to New Hampshire in 1989 to continue his career in banking. It was there that he met Donna, whom he married in November of 2003 and then moved back to Warrenton to be closer to his family.
Throughout his life, Yale was an avid gardener and found great joy as a part-time farmer, raising a menagerie of farm animals and pets. Having lived at the Military Academy at West Point during his youth when his father taught there, Yale loved visiting and following the Army football team and listening to the USMA marching band.
The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, November 15, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. A Mass of Christian burial will be held at 12:30 p.m. Friday, November at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Warrenton, with a private burial following.
