Paul John Wolfe, 74, passed away on Thursday November 7, 2019 at his home, surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Bennington, VT on June 8, 1945, he was the son of the late John and Rita (LeBlanc) Wolfe.
Paul was a 1963 graduate of Hartford Central School. He graduated from SUNY Cobleskill with an Associate's Degree in Business Administration in 1965, and belonged to the Zeta Alpha Phi fraternity.
In 1965 Paul enlisted in the United States Navy and was honorably discharged in 1969. He served during the Vietnam War, aboard the U.S.S. Caloosahatchee.
He married the love of his life Margaret (Penny) Danahy on May 14, 1966 at the St. Mary's/St. Paul's church in Hudson Falls. They spent over 53 loving years together.
Paul worked for 36 years at Finch Pruyn Paper as a Waste Treatment Operator. For the last 19 years he worked at the Glens Falls Hospital as a Medi-ride driver and a Distribution Clerk. He always went above and beyond to make sure the patients were treated with dignity and respect. Years ago, he was also very active in Boy Scouts as a cub master of pack #56 of Hudson Falls.
Paul's faith was very important to him. He was a member of the Arthur S. Kiffin Knights of Columbus, an usher at St.Mary's/St. Paul's church, and a member of their Parish Guild.
In his free time, he enjoyed woodworking, fishing, gardening, and crossword puzzles. He was an avid Red Sox fan. Paul and Penny enjoyed many trips to the ocean, family vacations, and going on cruises. Their favorite vacations were their trips to Hawaii. He always attended all school, dance and sporting events that his granddaughters were in.
