Manheim

   John C. Wolfe, 96, of Manheim, died peacefully on Saturday, November 5, 2022 at Pleasant View Communities. Born in Lebanon, he was the son of the late Lloyd A and Rosie Light Wolfe. John was the loving husband of the late Ruth Eshleman Wolfe who died in June of 2008. In his early years John was the owner and operator of his own farm in Rapho Township.

He was a member of the Christian Motorcycle Association. John had a deep passion for motorcycle riding and he and Ruth would travel most summers for six weeks of riding camping with their cycle throughout the United States and Canada. He rode motorcycle and camped until his young age of 75. He loved helping in church, and cherished any time he could spend with his children and grandchildren.

  Surviving are two sons: Gerald husband of Suzanne Wolfe of Elm, Clifford husband of Marjorie Wolfe of Mount Joy, two daughters: Marilyn wife of James Hoffsmith of Manheim, Betty wife of J. Michael Yoder of Lancaster, nine grandchildren, and eighteen great grandchildren. Preceding him in death is a brother, Eugene Wolfe, and two sisters: Dorothy Melhorn and Frances Oberholtzer.
