Former Governor Ira Wolf Passes Away

Former Club governor Ira Wolf has passed away following an illness.

A longtime Japan resident, he twice served as a diplomat with the US Embassy and was a senior executive at various companies and organizations in Tokyo.

Besides serving on the Club's Board of Governors for three two-year terms, he was a member of the board of the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan and served as vice chairman of the Japan-US Friendship Commission.

"Myself and the entire Tokyo American Club community are saddened to hear of Ira's passing," said Club President John Durkin. "The community is forever grateful to Ira for his contributions, and we will miss him very much. I personally found Ira's advice over the years to be thoughtful and wise. Ira's contribution to Tokyo American Club is one reason we are so successful today."

Ira is survived by his wife, Jeanne.
