Several job related moves followed every couple years: Salem Oregon to North bend Oregon, Gooding Idaho, to La grande Oregon. 4 more children were born along the way, April, Clayton, Heather & Valorie. After 7 years in La Grande my dad decided he could do better for himself and started his own business, Civil Construction Complany, choosing The Dalles as a fairly central location to do business from so he could see his family more often. They have been here for 24 years.

When I think of my dad I invision a rock wearing a party hat. He was steadfast never waivering his beliefs, he was never swayed by the world and he never let us kids manipulate him to get our way.
He was always goofing around, he was frequently called a "turkey" by my mother. He planned fun vacations for our family over the years, and he put caution to the wind when it was time to have fun.
I remmember a funny time while skiing he didn't want to wait for us kids to strap into our snowboards so he said "anyone who can keep up with me can ski with me", and he took off. He went up and down the mountain many times without us until one run we found a ski hat, goggles, a pole here a ski there, then behind the hazzard tape my dad came crawling up saying "don't go that way". He was a bit reclase at times.
He wasn't the best at communicating but he never stopped talking to people, making visits, or doing missionary work. We joke how in the moment some conversations could have been awkward but they always seemed to leave a lasting impressions.
He had no filter on who he'd be friend or hire. There were days I'd come home from school and find a bearded biker guy in the shop or a super cute young kid, and I'd wished he'd given me a little warning.
He was a list maker, as kids I remember many chore lists, this last week we've found many lists of goals; spiritual, financial, marriage and family and personal. He was always striving to improve and pushing the rest of us to improve as well.
I believe he will live on through us as we remember to; work hard, always find moments to have fun, never fear away from an adventure, make goals to reach the stars then work towards them, and to serve. No matter how busy life is we must make time to serve!
Paul C. Wolf passed away on Wednesday May 13, 2015 where a sudden accident took his life. He was doing something he loved for those that he loved and on their property where he loved. For those who new Paul know he lived a life committed to God, his family, his friends, and his many outdoor adventures.
After 43 years of committed marriage to his first and only sweetheart Sue Wolf, he went to live in heaven. He will be cherished forever by his children; Tawnya and William Burton, April and Jason Crosland, Clayton Wolf, Heather and Daniel Beck, and Valorie and Scott Williams. He is survived by his mother Emma Carolyn Wolf, 2 brothers and 4 sisters who will always love him.
He made positive lasting impressions on everyone he met. He is leaving a legacy through his examples to serve the Lord, love your family, work hard, and play harder. It is amazing to know all of the people he was able to touch just days before his passing.
His viewing was held on May 22, at 12pm and funeral service at 1pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints.
