Daniel Patrick Woulfe

March 25, 1967 - August 30, 2020

Daniel Patrick Woulfe, beloved husband, father, brother, son, and friend was called home, to rest in paradise, on August 30, 2020, at the age of 53. Dan fought a courageous four year battle with the monster that is Multiple Myeloma. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by love, with his wife and family by his side. He wasn’t in pain, he wasn’t afraid, he remained faithful to his last breath.

Dan was born March 25, 1967, to Patrick and Mary Lou Woulfe in Havana, Illinois. He graduated from Texas A&M University where he was a member of the Corps of Cadets and Fish Drill Team Senior Advisor. He proudly served his country through deployment in Desert Storm as an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps. He met Laura Botello at MBNA and they were married on March 26, 2005, in Plano, Texas. Dan was a servant leader who found just the right touch to encourage others to push themselves further than they knew they could go.

He is survived by his wife, Laura Woulfe; son, Johnathan Woulfe; daughter, Monica Ibarra; grandson, Isaac Mercado; mothers, Mary Lou Woulfe and husband, Larry Pickett and Kay Woulfe; sister, Carole Elwell; brother, David Woulfe and wife, Allison; nephews, Chase Elwell, Chance Elwell, William Woulfe; niece, Samantha Woulfe; Marine Corps brother, Michael Stambaugh; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and extended family whom he loved dearly.

Dan was preceded in death by his father, Patrick Woulfe,; uncle, John Woulfe and aunts, Kathy Major and Mary Jo Shanahan.

A memorial service will be held on Monday, September 14, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. C.D.T. at Saint Andrew United Methodist Church, 5801 W. Plano Pkwy, Plano, TX 75093. 

In lieu of flowers, a GoFundMe memorial scholarship fund has been created to honor Dan’s wishes of continued higher education for Johnathan (https://www.gofundme.com/f/scholarship-fund-in-loving-memory-of-daniel-woulfe?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1).

Our sincere condolences. Thinking of you Laura, Jonathan, Monica. and all my family. Know that you remain in my thoughts and prayers. May God's angels console you during this time. Jacqueline Baskett & Family , September 21, 2020 Dan - I wished I could have gotten to know you better. The time we did spend on boyscout campouts were memorable. I do remember one campout in particular that I'd like to share. It was one of our troops favorites, boulder hopping in the Wichita Mountain preserve in Oklahoma. A group of us, including you and Jonathan, decided to hike up to the famous "Apple and Pear". I think we took over 4 hours to get up to them. There were several granite faces that we had to navigate down. I was doing some "butt crawling" and didn't appreciate just how sharp some of the granite edges were. When we finally made it to the Apple & Pear, that is when someone noticed that I'd shredded the seat of my scout pants. It looked like a bear had clawed my behind. Thanks for keeping that part of our adventure to the Apple & Pear between us. Of course, I've now let it out of the bag. I hope this brings back one of the many happy memories for Jonathan. You will be missed my friend. We'll take comfort in knowing your looking down and keeping an eye on us on our next adventure. Rick

Dan always had a smile on his face and a positive outlook. He was enthusiastic, conscientious, kind and thoughtful. I always enjoyed his wit and dry sense of humor. We shared many laughs at work and outside the office. He was very proud of his family. RIP my friend. Damian Caruso , September 14, 2020 Dan had such a wonderful caring spirit. We are so sorry for your loss and wish your family well. Remember the good times. Our prayers are with you. Love Cathy and Paul Cathy and Paul Henesey, September 9, 2020 Our deepest sympathies to the Woulfe family. Dan was a wonderful person and will be deeply missed by all. Gary and Ann Wohn, September 8, 2020 I knew Dan working with him at Experian for many years. Him being a Marine and me an old Navy guy. I grew to enjoy our relationship as a co-worker and a friend. We joked around more than we worked together. We made each other laugh at work when ever our paths crossed. Which was frequent since we enjoyed each others company and worked at the same place. Dan is one of the nicest guys I have ever known. He always had a smile on his face and wanted to make sure others did also. His work with the veterans in general and at Experian was awesome. I will always remember him when I walk past the Experian Veterans tribute wall in Allen, Texas. I know you and the kids will miss him forever. I know he loved you guys by the way he talked about his family. God Bless you and your family Dan Woulfe! Robert Bowers, September 8, 2020 I will miss you terribly brother. Mike Morelock, September 8, 2020 Dan was one of those smiling faces in the hall at Experian. Although I did not work with him directly, he seemed a very pleasant and happy person. He was a patriot and I appreciated his dedication to our veterans at Experian. God Speed and thank you again for your service to our country.
