PEABODY – Mr. Donald W. Wolff, 65, of Peabody, beloved husband of the Maryann (Raney) Wolff, died unexpectedly Tuesday, June 9th, 2020 at his home following a medical incident.

Born in Lynn, he was the son of the late Ruben and Grace (Dube) Wolff. He was raised and educated in Salem and was a graduate of Salem High School. He continued his education at New England Institute of Anatomy in Boston.

Mr. Wolff was the Proprietor of Wolff Construction Company for over 45 years working in both commercial and residential capacities. A true craftsman, Donnie was known for his skill and quality of work. Mr. Wolff had also been a licensed Funeral Director Apprentice and for many years had been associated with O’Donnell Funeral and Cremation Service of Salem and Danvers and the Cuffe-McGinn Funeral Home of Lynn. He took great pride in being able to comfort those in their most difficult times.  

A loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle, Donnie was always quick to laugh and great story teller. He treasured taking road trips on his Harley, boating and fishing on Lake Winnipesauke and his annual family vacations. He was a diehard New England Patriots Fan and never missed a game.

A long-time resident of the City of Peabody, Donnie could often be found walking his beloved dogs throughout the neighborhood.
