A day of celebration began as Ron’s beautiful soul entered the world on March 1, 1953 to his parents, David and Mabel Wolfe in Amarillo, Texas. Ron served in the Army, was a Vietnam Veteran, and was proud of our country and our military. He was rarely seen without his Vietnam Veteran hat on. Ron married the love of his life, Karen Wossum in 1971 and although they later divorced, Ron thought of Karen fondly. Ron was a welder and was a longtime member of the Lubbock chapter of the Plumber’s and Pipefitter’s Union.
Ron was excited to know His Lord and Savior personally, learned Hebrew later in life and studied his bible daily. Family and friends were important to Ron and he enjoyed cooking chicken fried steaks and baking pies from scratch for those he loved and found friendship with. Ron’s amazing spirit is carried on through his two daughters, Teresa Murdock and Katrina Stockley and his “podunks,” who he was so proud of: Blake, Jake, Evan, and Brenner.
Ron is survived by his daughters, Teresa Murdock and her husband Andy of Panhandle; Katrina Stockley and her husband Chris of Colorado Springs, Colo.; grandsons Blake and Jake Murdock of Lubbock and Evan and Brenner Murdock of Panhandle; siblings Carol Delaney of Lubbock; Jim Wolfe and his wife Judy of Leavenworth, Kan.; and Steve Wolfe of Lubbock, Texas; a niece, Shawna Kelly and her husband Ciaran of Lubbock and their children Ashley Martinez of Canyon; Arienne Martinez and Declan Kelly, both of Lubbock; and many other family members.
Ron is reunited with his father and mother, David and Mabel Wolfe and countless other family members who are in heaven to welcome him with open arms. He will be greatly missed.
Services for Ron were be held at Lake Ridge Chapel in Lubbock on Wednesday, Nov. 27 at 11 a.m. followed by visitation.
Burial will be at the Miami, Texas Cemetery on Saturday, Nov. 30 at 2 p.m.
The family suggests memorials be to the Disabled American Veterans Association.
