A Willard man has died following a New Haven Township crash this weekend.

Paramedics transported Thomas A. Wolfe, 67, of 1000 Maplewood St., to Mercy Willard Hospital on Saturday. A medical helicopter then flew him to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.

Wolfe died Monday.

Wolfe was northbound on Ohio 61 north of Ohio 103 at 3:50 p.m. Saturday. Troopers said he went off the right side and hit a culvert and ditch.

It’s unknown if Wolfe was wearing his seatbelt.

Wolfe was a longtime sportswriter for the Norwalk Reflector, Sandusky Register and other local newspapers, covering the Willard Flashes for years.

Calling hours will be from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday at Secor Funeral Home in Willard. Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Monday at the First United Methodist Church in Willard.

Being a Norwalk Trucker fan. Of course, I always rooted against Mr. Wolfe's Flashes. Still, I enjoyed his well written, deeply felt, descriptions of his beloved Willard Flashes in action.

Thank-you Mr. Wolfe for being such a fine writer,who made his readers feel like they were there at the game. Even, if one rooted for a different team.

Rest in peace good man and thanks for caring enough to share your immense talents, with so many, for so many years.

Rip tommy! Ahwoooooo


Sadness for Tom's family on this holiday. Tom worked for us at the Reflector in many capacities. Not only did he write sports he also worked the sports desk at one time and drove motor routes for many years. My sympathy to his entire family.
