Brad Wolff, of Denver, Colorado, died at 94 years of age on October 18, 2018. He was a Colorado native and lifelong lover of our mountains, a home builder and real estate developer, a family man, a generous and steadfast friend, and a Navy Veteran of World War II. He enlisted on November 20, 1942, and was honorably discharged as a second lieutenant on July 6, 1946. He served in the Pacific Theater.
He was also a lover and creator of excellent practical jokes, funny verses, and Christmas Morning scavenger hunts. He was a great wit, a troublemaker, and a person of great intelligence and integrity. He discovered to his extreme dismay that being a wit and troublemaker can come back to bite you when he met Benji Wolff, an illustrious beagle with whom Brad vied for superior position (and lost, repeatedly) for 15 years. Brad loved to fish, hunt, play golf, ski, and clown. He reveled in his status as the acknowledged Champion of the Kearney Drug (at absolutely everything). He also loved and supported his friends, never forgot widows or orphans, and built homes and designed developments that were ahead of their time. But he was probably most fulfilled by his work for the Colorado Christian Home.
Brad is survived by Faye (Pearce) Wolff, his helpmeet, partner, and inspiration for 71 years, whom he married joyfully on June 22, 1947; by his brother, William Wolff, of Columbia, Missouri; and by his children: Tracy Lon Wolff, Michael Scott Wolff (Tammi), and Jeffrey Matthew Wolff, all of Denver. He was preceded in death by his son, Craig Bradley Wolff, on March 24, 1978. Brad was an excellent grandfather to Ryan Michael Wolff (Laurel Simpson), Adam Clayton Wolff (Tori), and Jeremy Matthew Wolff (Keely); and was great-grandfather to Hailey, Ethan, Audrina, Caleb, Cody, and Cameron.
Brad Wolff's life will be celebrated at a memorial service at the Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver on Tuesday, October 30, 2018, at 3:00 PM at Shelter A. Donations may be made to The Tennyson Center for Children and Families in Denver.
