Obituary for Darrald Keith Wolfe

Darrald Keith Wolfe, 78, passed away October 22, 2018 at his home in McMinnville, Oregon, from complications associated with dementia.

While Darrald was a man of few words, he was king of the sideways grin, shoulder shrug, and eye-roll. He was a ridiculously generous man, never running out of second chances. Also infamous for "crying wolf," the irony was never lost on us. Quick to welcome anyone into his home, he was most pleased seeing any of his grandkids walk through the door. His pride for his family shone above all else, and if you knew him at all you knew he had family coming out his sizeable ears!

Born in Sioux City, Iowa, November 24, 1939 to Darrald and Magdalena Wolfe, Darrald was the youngest of two children. He served two years in the United States Army, and another four years in the Army Corps Reserve. He completed two years of Bible College in California before beginning his career in construction.

Darrald had a successful contracting company, D. Wolfe, Inc., specializing in finish carpentry. He retired as CEO in 2006, continuing in an advisory role through 2008. He enjoyed fishing, bowling, traveling, and board games, especially Scrabble and Backgammon. He was also actively involved as a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus.

Darrald married Linda Douglass Jordan on June 2, 1980; Mom and Dad celebrated 46 years together, sharing several homes throughout the Willamette Valley, including two custom homes Darrald built in Dayton and McMinnville.

He is survived by his wife, Linda, their six children: Karen Smith of Wisconsin, Paul Jordan, Lori Hinkle, Tina Rubio, Julie Ballard, and Chani McCullough, all of Oregon, twenty grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren, his sister, Helen Brent of Oregon, and host of in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

The funeral service will be held at 1:00pm Saturday, October 27, 2018 at Saint James Catholic Church in McMinnville, Oregon, with rosary beginning at 12:30pm. Burial will follow at Evergreen Memorial Park. Viewing will be Friday, October 26th from Noon – 6:00 pm at Chapel of Macy and Son. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Macy & Son Funeral Home.
