Sympathies to the Wolfel family . I think I started school with Gary in the basement at 4th Street School going half days. 12 yrs later in 1973 we finished at CCHS . Gary was a quiet good guy who was always happy to see and talk to you. Joan was the light of his life and they cheerfully faced many hardships in life. May they Rest In Peace together.
