Jack Andrew Wolfe, 93, passed on to his heavenly Father on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, at his home in Arlington. He was looking forward to meeting his Savior, his wife of 65 years, and his family and friends. He was born in Wichita Falls, Texas, to Charles and Estelle Wolfe in 1926. Jack grew up mostly on the Texas coast graduating from Corpus Christi High School (now Miller) in 1944. He immediately enlisted in the Navy during WWII and was in aircrew training at war's end and was discharged in 1946. He received a BS in M.E. in 1952 from UT Austin and married the love of his life, Beryl Shuttlesworth, the same year.

  1. Jack was truly one of the sweetest men I’ve known. He will be missed by everyone in our church. He and Beryl are together again. What a love they had for each other. I’m sure that was a glorious reunion. He was loved by so many of us.

  2. Steve, Don, Terri – We were blessed to have both your mother and father as our long time neighbors and good friends. He and Beryl were the best of the best. After Beryl passed, we stayed in touch with Jack through visits, phone chats and occasional lunch dates. We will miss those visits. Please accept our sincere sympathy in the passing of this great and gentle soul.
    Edna Hardin and Hazel Edwards

  3. Terri, Don & Steve—Both of your parents helped raise all of us teens at Aldersgate. They were always so patient and kind. An after MYF get together at their house was always a treat. I hope that all of your happy memories will bring you peace and joy as you journey through your life.
