Herman Fred Wolf, 85, passed away peacefully at Elm Crest Manor on Nov. 27, 2019 with his loving family by his side. He was diagnosed with anaplastic thyroid cancer in January.
Herman Fred Wolf, the son of Fred Wolf and Antonia (Hoger) Wolf was born Oct. 15, 1934, at the family farm near Sweet Briar.
Herman attended Sweet Briar School and spent his entire life on the dairy, beef, and grain farm.
On Herman’s twenty-first birthday he married the love of his life, Rose Marie (Klein) Wolf.
He enjoyed a good life focused on operating the family farm. Plus sharing good times with family and friends by traveling, playing cards, and visiting. In his quiet times he enjoyed reading western novels, playing on his iPad, and after retirement helping with farm chores until October 2019 (He always said he was now the helper, not the boss!).
Herman served on the Peace Church Council Board, Elm Crest Manor Board, Sweet Briar School Board, Morton County Reorganization Board, Mandan Eagles Board, and served several other organizations. He was a member of the New Salem Sportsman’s Club, Mandan Eagles, Moose Club and the Bismarck-Mandan Elks.
