Mr. Franklin E. Wolfe, 91, of Smithsburg, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 1 at Julia Manor Nursing Home, Hagerstown.  He was the husband of Elizabeth Wolfe.  Born on January 22, 1926, he was the son of the late Franklin Ellsworth and Esther Viola Smith Wolfe.

Mr. Wolfe was, until the age of 85, an avid softball player.  He was a past member of the Elks Club in Hagerstown and enjoyed playing cards on trips to Charles Town.  Frank had a gift of connecting with people; his hard work ethic along with his ability to relate to customers and understand their needs made him very successful in automotive sales.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by children Dennis Wolfe and wife Linda and Daryl Wolfe, grandchildren Kelli and Daniel and Erin and Matthew and a great grandson Owen Langdon.  He took great pride in his family and cherished the moments they shared together.
