Bill Wolfe Jr. and his wife, Robyn, were celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary in Law Vegas when he was one of 59 people killed when a man opened fire on the crowded concert grounds from an upper floor of a nearby casino hotel.

Wolfe’s memorial will be held Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Newburg First Church of God.

Wolfe coached an elementary school wrestling team and a Little League team in Shippensburg, his hometown. Wolfe’s father, Bill Wolfe Sr., was Shippensburg borough manager for many years.

Shippensburg is about 40 miles (64.4 kilometers) southwest of Harrisburg, the state capital.
