In Memory - Ed Wolfe
1918-2001
 

Edward Frances Wolfe was born April 7, 1918 in Miles City Montana. When still a small child, the family moved to Montevideo, Minnesota. Shortly after graduating high school, he moved to Portland, Oregon and lived in that area the rest of his life. He was in the Army, serving in Europe during WWII.

He married Elizabeth Broberg and had 3 children, Leroy, Barbara, and Michael (Chris). He later remarried to Wanda, who had 2 school-age children, Judy and Sandy. Ed passed away January 30th, 2001 from complications after surgery.


Ed was the oldest of my momís brothers and one who held a special place for me because of his lifelong passion for motorcycles. He lived in the Portland area all his adult life. As a kid, we didnít see him that often, so I donít have very many memories to draw on. He did watch me ride around in the dirt in the late 80s when visiting Minnesota. My father, wife, sister, and I visited him for a few days in 1997, where he gave us a tour of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge.
