Alfred R. “Butch” Wolfli was born on May 26, 1929, in Lisbon, Ohio, to Alice and Fred Wolfli. However, his parents passed away when Alfred was very young, so he was raised along with his brother Edward and his sister Beulah, by his aunt and uncle, Erma and Joseph Weisand, in Louisville, Ohio.

On his 18th birthday, before completing high school, Alfred joined the military, and twenty years later, after serving tours of combat duty in the Korean War and Vietnam War, where earned the Purple Heart, he was honorable discharged. Shortly thereafter, Alfred started his second government-service career at the Colorado Springs, Colorado, post office, retiring in 1993.

Alfred always regretted his decision not to further his education even though he eventually earned his high school diploma while in the military. As a result, he was immensely proud and supportive of friends and family members who pursued or earned college degrees.

Alfred married Joyce Whiteside-Pyron in 1960, but the two were divorced in the 1980’s. Nonetheless, he maintained a close relationship with his step-daughter, Cathryn, until his death.

Alfred was a soft-spoken man with conservative political and social views. His great joy was the Rocky Mountain cabin he worked on for nearly 25 years. He died unexpectedly in May 2006.
