Remembering Dan Wolf Sr.

Board member and patriarch of Turning Pointe’s founding family, Dan Wolf Sr., died at his home in Longboat Key, Florida on Thursday, June 8.

Turning Pointe Autism Foundation Director Carrie Provenzale said that without question, it’s thanks to Dan that Turning Pointe began its relentless pursuit of being a best-practice place for students learning with autism.

Dan also was known for founding the Dan Wolf Automotive Group in 1971. The U.S. Army Reserves and Illinois National Guard veteran was a fan of golf and travel, which he enjoyed most with his wife, Penny. The two have two sons, Danny and Randy, and several grandchildren. More remembrances of Dan’s life, along with visitation details can be found on the Friedrich Jones website. Dan was 79 years old.
