Glenn Jeffrey Wolf (69), born April 15, 1952 in Russellville, AR, son of the late Ruth and Robert Wolf, died unexpectedly but peacefully in his sleep on February 17th, 2022 at home in Greenbelt, MD.
He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Elizabeth Eny, son David Wolf (Danielle) and Laura Tsampas (Alexandros); preceded in death by brother Terry (Lynn). Loving grandfather of Calder and Beckett, and anticipating the arrival of a granddaughter in the coming weeks. Also survived by siblings; sister Nancy Wolf-Fisher (Joe) and brother Richard (Gail).
Glenn grew up in Cheverly, MD and spent the majority of his life in Greenbelt, MD. He graduated from Bladensburg High School and studied at Allegheny College, PA. He worked in the automotive field before landing at Olympic Auto Parts, where he worked his way up and purchased the College Park store in 1986. He expanded Maryland Olympic to multiple stores and over a hundred employees. He retired in 2013.
Glenn always enjoyed traveling, including numerous cross country road trips, going to watch auto racing, or simply exploring new places. He loved camping at Lake George, NY long into adulthood after going there as a child with his parents. He and Liz enjoyed their second home on St. Leonard’s Creek in Calvert County, where he regularly enjoyed boating. He also enjoyed international travel.
Sports was a passion for Glenn - both participating and watching. He grew up playing tennis, baseball, and basketball. He loved playing softball and snow skiing with his children and younger brother, especially enjoying trips to Canada and Switzerland. Glenn had a razor sharp and very sarcastic wit, he was extensively well read, and had one of the most brilliant minds one could know. His ability with numbers, beginning from the time he was in kindergarten, was truly phenomenal. He was very devoted to his immediate and extended family, he adored his grandchildren and was a great companion to his many animals through the years, cats Mr. Bill and Mindy, and dogs Rudy, Zack, Zoe, and Riley.
A celebration of his life, together with a celebration of his older brother Terry’s life (who preceded Glenn in death by 33 days) will be held at a later date this spring. In lieu of flowers, the family requests you please contribute, in Glenn’s memory, to your local Boys and Girls Clubs at https://bgca.org/
