Frank Ronald Wolpert

March 18, 1939 — October 25, 2015

Frank Ronald Wolpert, 76, of Social Circle, GA, passed away on October 25, 2015. He grew up in Bergenfield, NJ, the son of the late Frank H. Wolpert and the late Florence B. Kraus. He married the late Lynn Ulrich in 1961, and the couple were married for 51 years until her passing. After marriage, they lived in Matawan and Holmdel NJ for many years. He moved to Social Circle two years ago after Lynn's passing. Frank was a 1957 graduate of Bergenfield High School, and a 1961 graduate of Tusculum (TN) College. He went on to a career in the cosmetics packaging industry, working for several firms until establishing his own business, Premier Packaging Corporation. He and Lynn were the parents of three children, Susan (Jim) Steers of Social Circle, Rob (Christine) Wolpert of Frisco, TX, and Bill (Nikki) Wolpert of Charleston SC. He is also survived by four grandchildren, Daniel Primavera of Plano, TX, Nick Primavera of Plainsboro NJ, Briana Primavera of Carteret, NJ, and Ashley Wolpert of Frisco TX. He is also survived by a step-granddaughter, Taylor Jarrett of Charleston SC, step-grandchildren Deanna, Gabrielle & Jessica Steers of Social Circle. He is also survived by a sister, Dorothy Piela, of Wayne NJ. Once Frank started dating Lynn after meeting her in the Bergenfield High School band, he started becoming very close to the Ulrich family, and looked upon Lynn's parents (Joseph and Lorraine Ulrich) as his own. For years, Frank and Lynn's home in Holmdel was the center of the extended family, consisting of their children, the Ulrichs, and Lynn's aunts and uncles. They hosted many treasured family gatherings at their home. Frank was always interested in golf and Lionel trains. Later, cars came into his life, and was very interested in antique cars, including several that he owned. After their marriage, he and Lynn took their children on many international trips as well as memorable family vacations to Peters Pond Park on Cape Cod. When his boys were younger, Frank served many years as a Little League coach and as a Pop Warner Coach for Holmdel. His interest in sports never waned, and he followed the fortunes of the New York Mets and the New York Giants for many years. Frank and Lynn enjoyed fine dining, and he made countless trips to New York City for lunches and dinners at the Palm Restaurant. Frank will be remembered as a fun-loving guy who loved to socialize with anyone near him. He was a superb host for family gatherings around their pool in Holmdel.
