 Emil Ray Wolf, a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away on July 5, 2024, in Nacogdoches, Texas. He was born on March 22,1934, in Port Acres, Texas.

 Emil dedicated thirty-one years of his life to Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company working his way up to shift foreman before retiring. His work ethic and leadership were admired by all who knew him. Not only was successful in his career, but he also served his country with honor in the United States Army and the Army Reserve.

 Outside of his professional life, Emil was a man of many passions. An avid reader, Emil always had a book close by to expand his knowledge and feed his curious mind. He found joy in fishing, painting, and meticulously mowing his lawn to perfection.

 Known for his fun-loving and playful nature, Emil brightened the lives of those around him with his infectious positivity and great sense of humor. His laughter was contagious, and he had a remarkable talent for storytelling that captivated listeners near and far. His daily goal was to make someone around him laugh.

 Emil was preceded in death by his mother Annie Lucille England Wolf, father Emil Royce (Lee Roy) Wolf, wife Marcile Cecile Guillory Wolf, brother Kenneth Wayne Wolf, and sister Mary Francis Boulett.

 Emil's love for his family knew no bounds. He cherished every moment spent with his children Kevin Ray Wolf and his wife Debra Joyce of Nacogdoches and Kayla Anne Champagne and her husband Douglas Gene of Nederland. His sister Barbara Lee Seeger held a special place in his heart.

 In addition to his immediate family, Emil is survived by his grandchildren Ashley Tanner and her husband John, Micah Wolf and his wife Crissy, Tommy Yawn, Trevor Wolf, as well as great-grandchildren Maya, Remington, Lexington, Colt, Colson, and one on the way. Each generation carries forward the legacy of love and joy that Emil embodied throughout his life.

 Emil will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. His memory will live on through the stories shared by family and friends.
