On Roy Wolfe
I understand that Roy Wolfe, the former United States Magistrate, passed away this week. He was someone I saw every day during my clerkship in Abingdon, during the last few months before his retirement. He was a good-humored man who liked to egg on Judge Williams to tell stories, even though he knew as many himself, and he thought it was hilarious that one of the demonstrators outside the courthouse hollered out "there goes the judge and his henchman" as Roy and the judge walked to a car. Evidently, he was also a lion in the courtroom, back in the day. He was a good friend to me who helped make my year at the courthouse the great experience it was.
