d. October 18, 2023

Plainfield Township, PA

Frederick H. Wolfe, Jr., 74, of Plainfield Township, passed away at St. Luke’s Hospital – Anderson Campus in Bethlehem Township on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, after fighting valiantly against cancer.  He was the loving husband of Janie A. (Trumbower) Wolfe to whom he was married 18 years.

Born in Philadelphia, Fred was a son of the late Frederick H. Wolfe, Sr. and Jean C. (Hartman) Van Santen.  He was a graduate of Liberty High School, Class of 1966, and West Virginia Institute of Technology where he earned a bachelor’s degree.  Fred honorably served in the United States National Guard during the Vietnam era, prior to embarking on a career in arboriculture, which spanned more than 40 years.  Often described as a hardworking man, Fred owned and operated Easton Tree Service until his recent retirement so he could spend time with his grandchildren whom he so dearly loved.  Fred was a faithful member of El Shaddai Assembly of God Church, Nazareth.
