'04 grad dies in Penn.

Greg Wolf, Trinity ’04, who fought off leukemia through the second half of his Duke career with a resolve his family likened to that of “a noble warrior,” died early Wednesday morning.

Wolf developed leukemia while studying abroad in London, but pressed on to graduate with his classmates in Durham after taking courses at the University of Pennsylvania while undergoing chemotherapy nearby.

Visitation will take place Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at St. John the Evangelist Church in Lower Makefield, Pa. A reception will be held immediately following the funeral Mass at a location to be announced. The family will have a private burial service on Monday.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a foundation which has been created by the family to benefit the research programs being conducted by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, the Newman Catholic Student Center at Duke University, St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, England and other institutions which have supported Greg’s fight or have sought to improve the quality of life of leukemia/lymphoma patients. Donations can be mailed to the following address: The Greg Wolf Fund, c/o Herrick, Feinstein LLP, 2 Park Ave., New York, N.Y., 10016 (Attention: Stacey Thomas).
