Donald D. Wolff, Jr., Fox Chapel, passed away due to complications from prostate cancer on November 20. He was 63. Wolff, a leading investment adviser and philanthropist, was an avid golfer, whose interest in the game led him to the 2003 presidency of the Pennsylvania Golf Association.

His community involvement included such organizations as UPMC, Women's Center and Shelter of Pittsburgh, and the Ellis School. His golf background included trips to Ireland and Scotland, interest in the game's history, and as Pennsylvania GA President, taking "snobbery out of golf and making competition open to anyone," commented his Guyasuta Financial partner, Richard Meyer.
