Obituary of Neil Wolfe

Neil Wolfe, known to most as “Pat” or “Ja Head”, born on November 27, 1954 to the late Clifford and Lucille Wolfe in Free Town, Clarendon, Jamaica, W.I.  Neil was the 7th of eleven children.  He attended Free Town Primary and Old Harbor Secondary and later migrated to the United States where he met and married Judith Wolfe.  Pat was a mechanic by trade and worked for many years in the business with his brothers, the late Danny Wolfe and Audley Wolfe.  He later worked as a Taxi Driver with Round Town and then Community Car service.

    Neil was an amazing man, fun loving with a great sense of humor.  Loves the ladies and loves the music.  In the early eighties he recorded a song call “Dem Nuh See Nothing Yet”.  He had a sound system titled “Ja Head Intentional” that played at a variety of celebration -- not just here in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, but also in his home town of Clarendon, Jamaica.  

    Pat believed in family and loves his birth county Jamaica.  On October 6, 2013, Pat became ill and was diagnosed with lung cancer and given three to six months.  Pat defies the odds and four and a half years later was still living -- dancing and singing. During that time, he made many memorable trips back to Jamaica – He never lost his spirit or his joy.  On May 29, 2017, Pat bid us farewell and left his earthly residence to be with his Lord and Savior.  

    He leaves to mourn his passing, his wife, Judith Wolfe, four children: two daughters, Patricia Wolfe-Hankerson,  Nadine Wolfe- Bonaventure; two sons, Neil and Craig Wolfe; seven gran-children: Charles Smith, William Jamison, Mackhel Jamison, TJ Hankerson, Kaylah Smith, Alicia Bonaventure and Alexandra Bonaventure; two brothers, Audley and Babsie; five sisters, Victoria Wyndham (Sister Puncy), Cynthia Bernard, Hazel Newel, Daphney Wilson, Claudette Wolfe, and Sandry Gailord; Nieces and Nephews; more than 70 great-nieces and nephews; a host of cousins and other relatives and friends.  Sons-in-laws, Maurice Hackerson and Johnny Bonadventure.
