John Franklin Wolfe
John Franklin Wolfe, 67, of McKinney, Texas, passed away on July 30, 2022. He was born September 26, 1954, in Denton, Texas. In his youth, John was actively engaged in scouting. He was a member of the Boy Scouts and Explorer Post 140, and worked on staff at Philmont Scout Ranch during his summers. John left Denton to pursue a career in information technology, traveling the world for Rockwell International and Aramco. He married the love of his life and his forever travel companion, Linda, on February 14, 1976. They eventually settled in Sugar Land, Texas where he worked for Aramco Services Company for 30 years before retiring. Upon retirement, John and Linda moved to McKinney, Texas to be near their beloved daughter. While John's time to experience retirement was cut short, he enjoyed it to the fullest. He spent his retirement tinkering in his workshop, reading every book he could get his hands on, and spending as much time with his wife and daughter as he could. John was a devoted husband, a loving father, a caring brother, and an unwavering friend.
John is survived by his wife, Linda Wolfe of McKinney, Texas; daughter, Kristin Wolfe of Dallas, Texas; brother and sister-in-law, Bill Wolfe and Nanette Martin-Wolfe of Greenville, South Carolina; brother David Wolfe of New York City; and many cousins. He is preceded in death by his brother, Travis; father, Archie Wolfe; mother Doris Wolfe; and step-mother, Carolyn Wolfe.
