Dr. Daniel K. Wolfe III, age 84, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, passed away Monday, April 13, 2020 after a short illness. Dan graduated from The University of Denver in 1959, University of Colorado Medical School in 1964, and had a successful medical practice in Durango, Colorado for many years. One of his loves was being outdoors in the mountains and deserts and was an avid supporter of the Colorado Mountain Club. In addition, he successfully summited all the Colorado 14'ers - many of them multiple times and spent many summers helping develop the Colorado Trail. Many of his retirement summers were spent volunteering for the San Juan and Rio Grande National Forest. He is survived by his wife Janet and his children Dan, Becky, and John. Those wishing to remember Dan please consider a donation to the Colorado Mountain Club or the Colorado Trail Foundation. Please visit the online guestbook for Daniel at www.FrenchFunerals.com

After Dr Wolfe retired and moved to New Mexico, he took courses in plumbing and electricity so that he could help Becky with her cabin in the mountains. After Dan and Jan moved into La Vida Llena, I remember that his wonderful smile made his eyes just twinkle!

In the 70s I worked for Dr. Wolf as his assistant. I learned a lot and enjoyed the work. What I remember most about him was his great, dry sense of humor. He was also a very good doctor.

Dr. Wolfe delivered my second daughter and was an excellent doctor. My sympathy to his family.

On Sept 26, 1981 Dr Wolfe delivered my son Stephen into the world at Community Hospital in Durango. It was an early morning birth and I remember the poor doctor sitting on his stool with his head propped against the wall snoozing because my labor had taken a nap. When I was finally ready to push we politely tapped him awake and he got right back into it. Fond memories. Dr McKinley delivered my first two and when he retired Doctor Wolfe took over. They were both great doctors and just plain good people.
