Wally was born February 19, 1934 to Clarence and Kathleen (Smith) Wolff in Mankato. His fondest memories of attending Janesville High School was playing football for the Golden Bears. Following graduation, Wally proudly served in the US Marine Corps during the Korean War. He then married Betty Gens and together had six children. They later divorced.  On August 29, 1985 he married Linda Loe. Wally’s desire to create new opportunities lead him to establish “Wally’s Drive-in” in the early 60’s, where he was known for his famous broasted chicken. In the mid 70’s Wally then founded WW Blacktopping which is still owned and operated by his family.  In his free time, Wally enjoyed traveling with his wife Linda, time at their cabin up north, fishing, and spending time with family, especially making his broasted chicken during their 4th of July celebrations.  

Wally is survived by his wife, Linda of 35 years; children, Michelle (Steve) Schwartz, Mitch (Pegi) Wolff, Dennis (Beth Ann) Wolff, Peter (Debra) Wolff, Brian (Tricia) Wolff, Kristie  Pittmann (Ken), Molly Loe (Tom) and Joe (Staci) Grommersch; 16 grandchildren; 2 great-grandchildren; sisters, Maureen Valentine and Sheila Wolff; brother, Robert  Wolff (Alaine); and sister-in-law, Mary Wolff.
