Kirby Wolfe, 47, of Columbia City, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at Parkview Regional Medical Center. Born March 14, 1973 in Columbia City, he was the son of Harold Wolfe and Paula Anders.
Growing up in Fort Wayne, Kirby enjoyed spending time listening to music, being with friends, playing baseball and being on the water. While attending Snider High School, Kirby joked that he was "Captain of the Varsity Smoking Team" and graduated with the Class of 1991. He would go on to earn his bachelors degree from Indiana Wesleyan University.
Kirby had a large personality who was funny and caring. He spent much of his work career in the car business and also investing in homes. It was not uncommon seeing him having fun with his friends, having a beer, going to concerts or speeding around in his Corvette listening to the Rolling Stones. Kirby enjoyed vacationing in Florida, was a fan of the Miami Dolphins (but not a fan of Tom Brady) and one day wanted to live in the paradise in Florida.
Kirby is survived by his son, Mason Waggoner; daughter, Morgan Wolfe; sister, Kelly Wolfe; and three nephews, Jacob Hosler, Zackary Hosler and Jackson Kline. He was preceded in death by both his parents in 2017.
