After serving with Volunteers in Service to America, Mr. Wolfe earned his law degree from DePaul University College of Law in Chicago. He was known for his integrity, his passionate nature and a loving heart. He had a droll wit that delighted all who knew him and buoyed him through the years of his legal practice as he raised his sons and contributed to his communities. He had a deep interest in history, an encyclopedic knowledge of sports and a deep appreciation for nature—from the early days of family outings in Potter County, Pennsylvania, to more recent trips to Yosemite National Park. Survivors include two sons, three sisters, a stepdaughter and four step-grandchildren.

Arthur L. “Butch” Wilson (Col ’72 L/M) of Lexington, Virginia, died May 10, 2018. Mr. Wilson, a bassist, was an early member of the Charlottesville Blues Allstars band, and he proudly recounted his opportunity to “sit in” with the legendary Muddy Waters at the Mineshaft. He was also a member of the Killer Bs, Broken English and Purple Valley. His time as a student assistant in Alderman Library reinforced his passion for reading, and his work with youth in the 1970s led to a career focusing on adult education. After earning his master’s from Virginia Tech and his doctorate from the University of Georgia, he taught at Ball State University and North Carolina State University before joining the department of education at Cornell University, where he served as professor and chair. He was author, co-author or editor of five books, and he advised and mentored many graduate students. He had a wicked sense of humor, a keen eye for art and a passion to improve the world. Survivors include his wife, Barbara; his daughter; one granddaughter; three sisters; and a brother.


Harold “Bill” Sutton Jr. (Com ’74 L/M) of Forest Hill, Maryland, died Aug. 8, 2018. He served in the U.S. Navy for two years before beginning his career as an engineer at the Sperry Corp. in Charlottesville, then as an engineering executive in Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Alabama and New Mexico. He worked for many years at the Fairchild Space and Defense Corp. and at Martin Marietta. He retired in 2012 from Bowhead Support Services in Lexington Park, Maryland. For 16 years, he drove 220 miles daily to Lexington Park out of love for his job and his commitment to having a rooted family life. Mr. Sutton was passionate about his work, which included working on the Lantirn defense system and the V-22 Osprey aircraft project. He was an avid runner until his 50s and sometimes ran as many as 20 miles a day. He loved the Virginia countryside and  especially enjoyed running a mountain trail near the University in his younger days. He loved the simple pleasures of life: time with his family, time with his dog, good food, reading, keeping well-informed of political and world events, and enjoying the Maryland outdoors. He often entertained his family and friends for hours with stories about past adventures. He was known as a devoted family man of wit, grit, wisdom and good humor. Survivors include his wife, Elizabeth Marquardt; two daughters; and two grandsons.
