Allen WolffALLEN WOLFF, D.V.M. of Brunswick passed away Tuesday, October 23 at Hospice of Medina County following a valiant battle with cancer.
Allen was born January 27, 1932 in Springfield, Massachusetts to Emil and Dorothy (Brown) Wolff. He grew up in the Bronx and Albany, New York, and graduated from Albany High School in 1949 where he competed on the cross country and track teams. He was also an Eagle Scout and served on the staff of Big Moose Wilderness Scout Camp, teaching bird study, canoeing, and riflemanship.
At Michigan State College, Allen participated on the track team, livestock judging team, ROTC, and was elected to the 35-member Blue Key Men's Honorary. He paid part of his college expenses by performing magic tricks at clubs and parties for $5 and $10, as well as shearing sheep. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 1953, as a Distinguished Military Graduate.
While attending The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Allen met his future wife Martha Jane Riemenschneider, who typed his first scientific paper. He paid his tuition there by shearing sheep and serving in the Ohio National Guard, and graduated with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1957.
After serving a short time in the U.S. Army, Dr. and Mrs. Wolff eventually settled in Brunswick, Ohio where his practice changed from a combination of farm and pet animals to mostly pets. Additionally, he published about 20 scientific papers, several on disease of the pancreas.
Following retirement in 1996, after 39 years of practice, Allen helped his wife with her activity on behalf of the Brunswick Food Pantry. They also volunteered at the Rural Area Veterinary Services, which provided basic veterinary services for underserved areas of Appalachia including several counties of southeastern Ohio. He enjoyed helping students learn basic surgeries. He also enjoyed gardening, making pies and jams, entering products in the Medina County Fair, and traveling through the U.S. and all seven continents. "Allemande Al" taught Square and Round dancing and choreographed over 90 dances. He and Martha attended 20 national dance conventions and 24 state conventions, performing at most of them.
Allen is survived by his wife of 55 years, Martha; daughter Amy (Lenny) Wolff of Fairfield, Ohio; son Scott of Blacklick, Ohio; daughter Darcy (Eric) Schwalm of Greer, South Carolina; and five grandchildren Tiffany Wolff and Emily, Spenser, Caroline, and Annabelle Schwalm.
It is ironic that Allen succumbed to an illness of the pancreas, after having become a knowledgeable person on some diseases of the pancreas.
