Robert Theodore Wolf, the longest serving president of CAL FIRE Local 2881, died quietly last night.

The idea that Bob is no longer with us is difficult for all of us who spent time in his company.  He was a man of extraordinary talents and energy.  The best way to remember Bob is to acknowledge that with the exception of his family, he loved no one more than his firefighters.

Bob lived completely a firefighters’ life.

His dad was career CDF and his name is on the Memorial Wall.  Bob’s first home was a CAL FIRE firehouse.  Bob never wanted to be anything but a firefighter.  In the course of his remarkable career he earned the respect of his colleagues as one of the best and the brightest of our profession.

We will have time to remember Bob’s many contributions.  Today is a day for grief, prayer and memory.
