Vaughn Arthur Wolf


Vaughn Arthur Wolf, 79, of Selinsgrove, went to be with his Heavenly family on Thursday, May 9, 2019.
He was born June 12, 1939, in Port Trevorton, a son of the late Arthur E. and S. Mae (Beaver) Wolf. On June 20, 1964, he married the former Sandra J. Dietz who survives him. His passing breaks a marital union of 54 years.

Vaughn was a graduate of Selinsgrove Area High School where he played football and baseball. After graduation, Vaughn enlisted in the Navy. He then went on to Susquehanna University where he obtained his undergraduate degree in psychology. He played on SU's football team under head coach Garrett. He later attended Penn State University to get his masters degree in education. In addition to football, Vaughn loved to play baseball and softball and was a force to be reckoned with. His teammates nicknamed his bat as the "Bleacher Reacher".

Vaughn was employed as a psychologist/unit manager for the Selinsgrove Center, retiring in 1998 after 30 years of service. He retired in order to have more time to enjoy fishing and golf, and as a member of the Shade Mountain Golf Course.

He was a member of Witmer's United Methodist Church, Port Trevorton where he taught Sunday school, led devotions, and taught Vacation Bible school.

In addition to his wife, Vaughn is survived by one son and daughter-in-law, Douglas E. and Margaret (Ticknor) Wolf of Mars; one daughter, Karen E. Wolf of Selinsgrove; two grandsons, Logan and Graeme Wolf of Mars; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Ronald and Barbara Wolf of Port Trevorton and Keith and Linda Wolf of Selinsgrove; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and great friends.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Yvonne Mull and Regina Robbins.

Visitors may call from 3 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 18, at Witmer's United Methodist Church, 350 Witmer Road, Port Trevorton, followed by a memorial service with military honors at 4, with Pastor Ruth Liples officiating.
