Rev. James Wolf

January 7, 1934 — June 12, 2021

Rev. James W. Wolf, 87, of Frederick, Maryland passed from this life on Saturday, June 12, 2021.

Born on January 7, 1934, in New Freedom, Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late Claude and Pauline Wolf.  He was preceded in death by his wife  of 46 years, Loretta M. Wolf,  and his oldest son Gregory J. Wolf.

After completing high school, Jim attended Central Bible College and later Florida Southern with degrees in Education and Biblical Studies, he later received a Master’s degree in education from Loyola College.

Jim was a lifelong educator and beloved teacher, serving in both Montgomery and Frederick Counties.  He retired from Montgomery County Public Schools after 35 years of teaching but continued substituting  long after his retirement.

Jim was also an ordained minister for the Assemblies of God for over 50 years.  During his ministry he Pastored for many small congregations including Garretts Mill Assembly of God, Shookstown Assembly of God, both in Maryland. He also Pastored for several years at Key to Life Ministries in McClean, Virginia.
Although he loved serving in the church, most would say his ministry happened beyond the church walls.
He was devoted husband, father and friend. He never met a stranger and his kind gentle spirit will be missed by many.

He is survived by daughters, Karen Reid and Cheryl Jones; son, Christopher Wolf, and brother, William Wolf; grandchildren, Jason, Ashley, Rachel, Andrew, Jordan, Jessica, Zachary, Nathanial and Cambrie; great-grandchildren, Brianna, Jaxon, Caden, Kingston, Aubrey, Everleigh, Ezekiel, Hayden, Elijah, Ella, Jewelz, Dee, Priscilla and Hudson.
