Dennis E. Wolf, 86, of Crystal Lake, formerly of Forest Park, died on June 27, 2018 at Bickford Senior Living. Born on Dec. 6, 1931 in Bancroft, Iowa to Eugene and Florence (Miller) Wolf, he was united in marriage on Jan. 28, 1972 to the former Myrna Ramker Riehle, and they spent the next 46 happy years together. His first love was Myrna and his second love was baseball. An avid Chicago White Sox fan, he enjoyed all sports. He was known as a "snappy" dresser and was employed for 44 years with the Chicago & North Western Railroad until his retirement. 

A loving husband, step-father, step-grandfather, brother and uncle who will be deeply missed by his family and friends, Dennis Wolfe is survived by his wife, Myrna Wolf; his step-children, Mark Riehle, Mitch (Rosa) Riehle, Margaret (Steve) Riehle-Moeller and Mary (Dave) Gosztola; his step-son-in-law, Eugene Ramirez; 11 step-grandchildren; his sisters, Jane Steckman and Judy (Tony) Schiltz; and his many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Eugene and Florence Wolf; his step-daughter, Marilyn Ramirez; his sister, Cindy Thomas; and his brother-in-law, Frank Steckman. 

A memorial service will be held at a later date. Arrangements were handled by Nelson Funeral Homes & Crematory.
