Dennis Wolk

DENNIS JOHN WOLK, aged 82 years, beloved husband for 59 years to Elaine F. (nee Putka), dear father of Jeffrey, Kenneth and the late Dennis Michael Wolk, devoted son of the late Stephen and Marie (nee Kafton).

Dennis John Wolk was born in Cleveland on July 20, 1941. An only child, he was raised on the Southeast side of Cleveland, growing up in the house across the street from his future wife. Elaine F. Putka and Dennis John Wolk were married 59 years ago (approaching 60 years!!) in Holy Family Catholic Church on East 131st St. Around 55 years ago, they located to Cleveland Heights, and lived in that city at the time of his death.

Dennis first worked at General Electric for 15 years as a draftsman, working primarily at Nela Park and the East 152nd St. locations. Dennis and Elaine then branched out on their own, opening the Dr. Dennis Auto Trim on E. 152nd St.

Dennis had a passion for exercising. That and a love for his dogs, which often involved walks with his “pals” through the neighborhood where he became a well-known fixture.  His love for dogs extended to his many hours volunteering at Rescue Village.

Dennis is now at peace, being greeted in heaven by his son Dennis Michael and family and friends who have gone before.  He will be missed by those family members and friends he left behind. Rest in Peace, Dennis.

Please meet for the Mass of Christian Burial Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2023, at St. Gregory the Great Catholic Church of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish at 11 AM. Private burial. Arrangements entrusted to THE DeJOHN-FLYNN-MYLOTT FUNERAL HOME OF SOUTH EUCLID.
