Dennis Roy Wolk, age 63, passed away Tuesday, April 14, 2020 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. Dennis was born June 7, 1956 in Rhode Island, to the late Ray Wolk and Claudette Fournier Wolk. His family relocated to Florida where he graduated from Bunnell High School in 1974.

He entered the Navy at the age of 18 and traveled the world on a submarine. He was honorably discharged after 6 years. He attended college at Trident Technical College and received his degree in nursing and worked as an RN at Roper Hospital in the ICU. He continued his education in Charleston and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in the medical field as a Perfusionist. He relocated to Atlanta in 1994 and worked at St. Joseph’s Hospital until 2012. He started his own company and began to travel as a Perfusionist. In December 2016, Dennis became employed at Piedmont Athens Regional Hospital in Perfusion and worked there until his death. He truly loved his work and the special friends he met there.

Dennis was an avid Harley Davidson motorcyclist and traveled with his wife and group of friends. He attended many Daytona Bike Weeks, and Sturgis twice. He also enjoyed working on motorcycles. He was a master carpenter and always had a project in the works. In his spare time, he enjoyed reading, researching a new topic, grilling, traveling, the annual fishing trip with his friends and spending time with family, especially his grandsons, whom he adored.

Preceding him in death was his father, Ray Wolk; father-in-law, Bradley Lanham; and his sister-in-law, Michelle Strickland.

Dennis is survived by his wife, Renee Lanham Wolk; daughters, Drew Strack and her husband Kenny, and Paige Wolk; grandsons, Hayes and Hudson Strack; step-sons, Josh Castleberry, and Jordan Castleberry and his wife Megan; his mother, Claudette Wolk; sister, Jeanette Anderson; brothers, Francis, Wray, Pete, and Jim Wolk; and special friends, Aleta Gerard, Ricky Mueller, Allen Morgan, Rick Farrington, Jim Carlson, and Dick and Trish Rigatti.

I am sorry to hear of the passing of Dennis. I remember him well; he was one of the few "forward pukes", as us "Nucs" called the crew members who worked forward of engineering, that I talked to and enjoyed being around when not on watch. When I saw his name in the ship's newspaper his face literally jumped out at me. He always seemed to have that big small on his face whenever we met off watch. I know he will be missed.
