The Calumet Region Photo Club has lost a great leader, outstanding photographer, and dearest friend to all.  Dr. Raleigh Wolfe passed away on Sunday, November 1, 2021, losing a three year battle to pancreatic cancer.  Raleigh was one of the founding fathers of the CRPC and very instrumental in its initial organization.  He was always involved with the development of the club and concerned that it met the needs of the members.  He was the immediate past president of the club, and also chaired the Photography Clinic, suggesting topics for speakers, judging other clubs competitions and assuring that they reciprocate, instituting training, and organizing activities and field trips.  After he was diagnosed with cancer he continued with his leadership and continued to foster quality activities for the membership.  He enjoyed judging photography competitions for other clubs and encouraged other clubs to allow the judges to critique the images after judging.  He was a master at evaluating images and had a knack to spot the quality parts of an image thus he was very positive in his critique.  Raleigh was a clinical psychologist and practiced his profession for over fifty years both working with patients and also sharing his expertise with graduate students where he taught at Purdue University.  Raleigh will always be remembered for his love of photography, but some little known facts are that he love baseball and attended college on a baseball scholarship.  He also served in the Air Force for six years as a flight engineer part of that time was during the Cuban Crises.  Raleigh also spent some time as a professional wedding photographer.  He was always concerned about others and even in those trying days of his cancer he participated in a cancer research program hoping that his treatment would help others.  On Saturday, November 27th, there will  be a  Memorial Celebration of Raleigh’s life at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster, IN.  For those masked and with proof of vaccination, visitation with the family is from 12:00 to 4:00 pm followed by a Celebration of Life Service from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.  Those unable to attend may request a Zoom link from lchickiewolfe@gmail.com.  Letters and memories can be sent to his wife, Louise Chickie-Wolfe, PO Box 3384, Munster, IN 46321.  In lieu of flowers, donations in his name may be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network or to Hospice of the Calumet Area.  Raleigh was an inspiration to everyone, he was kind, intelligent, generous, thoughtful, and supportive.  His presence at photography meetings will be missed but he will always be remembered and serve as an inspiration to all.  Michael Kobe     Raleigh Lee Wolfe 1938 - 2021
