Thomas Oliver Wolff passed away at home surrounded by family on April 22, 2021 in Magna, UT

He was born to Herbert G. Wolff (Buck) & Edith E. Henderson (Edna) on October 29,1932 in Norfolk, Nebraska and grew up in Ithaca, Nebraska. He loved to tell the story that his elementary and Jr. High were a class of four students. Tom was the oldest of three boys and grew up in a small town and at age 17 with a little help from his dad he joined the Navy. He always said that was the best advice his father gave him.

He spent six years living in Honolulu, Hawaii. He would meet his Wife Harriett Ann and her daughter Michelle, and they would travel all over before settling in New Jersey and retiring in 1972. Tom soon became a TV repairman and on his free time he would be out on the boat fishing with his 1st mate (Ann) and deck hand (Michelle).

He loved to bowl and even after Ann passed away in 1982, he still would be on 1-3 leagues per week. He won lots of trophies and even got one for 11 strikes in a row. Whenever I hear thunder, I would like to think that it is him bowling in heaven.

Tom is survived by his daughter; Michelle and her husband Roger Hewitt, brother; Don Wolff, grandchildren; Scott (Whitley), Chase, Kayla, and Jonathan (Sara) and two great-grandchildren (Diggy & Griffey), nieces (Jean, Lori, Sandi and Dina) and nephews (Joe and John).

He is preceded in death by his wife; Harriett Ann, parents; Herbert G & Edith E, brother Gene, sisters in law (Pat and Doris), nephew Jack Wolff.
