Dr. Harry Lewis Wolfgang, of Valparaiso, FL, passed away Sunday, October 25, 2020, at Select Specialty Hospital, in Pensacola, FL, after a lengthy illness.

Harry was born on April 3, 1941, to Violet Engle Wolfgang and Harry Lewis Wolfgang.  He married Rebecca (“Becky”) West on June 4, 1961 and moved to Valparaiso in 1968.

He was preceded in death by Becky, and his parents.  He is survived by his children Lewis (wife Hannah) and Hugh, and two grandchildren, River and Harrison. 

After receiving his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Alabama, Harry joined the U.S. Air Force, before transitioning 4 years later to a civil service job in the Environmental Protection office at Eglin AFB for 17 years. 

Many area residents remember Harry and Becky from Tropipines, a garden center in Niceville which they owned and operated for 33 years.

Harry will be interred in a private service at St. Paul Memorial Garden in Niceville.  A memorial service will be planned in the future.
