The Man, the Myth, the Legend, Ronald E. “Wolf” DeWolf, age 86, of Plain City, OH passed away at his home on Sunday, August 1, 2021.
Ron was born in Peoria, OH to Flossie and Harlow DeWolf on May 28, 1935. He graduated from Raymond High School in 1953. He married Gloria I DeWolf (Friend) on December 24, 1965, in Columbus, Ohio. Ron/Wolf founded, owned and operated Bulk Transit Corporation with headquarters in Plain City, OH from 1972 to 2016 at which time he transferred ownership to his children. However, he was “showing up for work” on a regular basis until a week prior to his passing. Ron was also an Ohio Horsemen. He has bred and raced many thoroughbreds, including Ohio Horse of the Year in 1996 and 1997, Crypto’s Redjet. When Ron/Wolf wasn’t working, he spent his time on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky surrounded by his family. This tradition started in 1981 and has continued with his wife, kids, grandkids and great grandkids, with his most recent trip over July 4th weekend. Ron and Gloria believed that the family that plays together, stays together and it did! His legacy will live on through his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who loved him dearly. Ron/Wolf had a soft spot for dogs and had one by his side most of his life. He was especially fond of his two Bloodhounds, Auggie and G.O.B., and after they passed he would “love on” and share his meals with the grand doggies.
Ronald E. DeWolf is preceded in death by his daughter, Lisa Jo DeWolf, his parents Flossie and Harlow DeWolf, and his brother George DeWolf.
Ronald E. DeWolf is survived by his wife of 55 years, Gloria I. DeWolf (Friend), His sons, Ronald “Bryan” DeWolf (Gail) and Brad E. DeWolf, and daughter Andrea R. McClung (Sean), Grandkids, Beau Garwood (Danielle), Chance Swank, Nicholas DeWolf, Michael Woods, Rachel DeWolf, Austin Woods, Connor McClung, Madison Woods, Kayla McClung, and Mason Woods.
