Frank and Mary Wolf.  Frank attended North Central College and The University of  Wisconsin-Madison medical school. Frank was a Vietnam veteran who served as a surgeon in the 7th surgical hospital. His work in the MASH unit put him on the path to become a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. Frank had his own private practice and was the head of the Miller-Dwan Burn Unit and Wound Clinic. Frank had a passion for his work and touched many lives. He was an avid traveler to Montana, The Bahamas and Europe, especially Portugal . He loved to discover agates by the shores of Lake Superior, hunt, fish and work on projects in his garage.  He enjoyed road trips with his sidekick Ted (his T-cup Yorkie).  He was very proud of his garden and remained very busy with his many interests until his unexpected passing.  Frank was a kind and generous father, grandfather, brother and friend.  He will be greatly missed by all who loved him.
