Charlie Wolf has completed his life ‘s journey. He passed away on January 18, 2023. The strongest man ever known to his family and friends was not stronger than cancer.

He was born December 16, 1950, in Illinois, to parents Chuck Sr. and Mary Maronde. He grew up in Lyndon, Illinois, right along the Rock River. He graduated from Sterling ‘s Newman Catholic high school in 1969. He met Mary Quilhot from Prophetstown in her driveway in 1968. He was driving the ugliest car she had ever seen, and he made her laugh for half an hour. After a hilarious conversation, he left and she told her grandmother that she was probably going to marry him. And so they did, on August 30, 1969.

Six years later, at the age of 25, Charlie and Mary packed up everything they had, along with their three daughters, and they moved to California. They then moved to their home in Grass Valley in 1979, and have lived on the same land ever since.

Charlie was an excellent welder. He even received a bonus from Mare Island Naval Shipyard near Vallejo for his great fix on a submarine. He worked at Sierra Metal Fabricators for 21 years, leaving briefly to work at RJR Fab. There was hardly anything he couldn’t fix, and he made most things better than they were to begin with.

Charlie was an avid snowmobiler and ATV rider. He loved camping with family and pals, and especially exploring in Nevada, Montana and Idaho. He rarely missed a mass at St. Canice Catholic Church in Nevada City. He had three gorgeous girls that many called Charlie’s angels, although they were also considered tomboys. He loved them so much.

Charlie is survived by his wife, Mary, his three daughters, Jane {Richie} Schluter, Ann {Briar} Segal, Jessica {Aaron} Walker, his two grandsons, Randy Schluter and Sam Walker, his brothers, Don, Rick, Dru, and his sister Lisa Britton. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Ted.

Charlie will be cremated at Chapel of the Angels in Grass Valley. Funeral services will be held at St. Canice Catholic Church, 317 Washington St., Nevada City, at 1 pm on February 3, 2023. Since his favorite food was tacos, Maria’s of Grass Valley will be catering a taco bar following the services at Kane’s restaurant, 120 E. Main St., Grass Valley.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, Golden Empire Nursing and Rehab Center, or Animal Save of Grass Valley.
