Former Galt resident Wade Bolding, 78, passed away at home in Auburn on March 8, 2020 after a long battle with cancer. He was born March 3, 1942 in Madera.
Wade is survived by his wife of 37 years, Theresa Bolding of Auburn; daughter Melissa Bolding of Orangevale; sisters Betty Gibson and Margie Pickett, both of Washington; mother-in-law El Wonda (Dee) Collier of Valley Springs, as well as many brothers- and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews.
Wade attended Campbell High School where he was on the varsity football team, something he was always proud of. After high school, Wade attended night college in San Jose for three years while working in construction. The last decade or so of his career, he was a lath and plaster foreman. He retired in 2008 after more than 45 years in the industry.
Wade enjoyed spending time with his family and was a loving husband, father, brother and uncle. He also enjoyed watching old westerns, listening to country music, visiting Big Trees, the ocean and nearby rivers. He was known to be quite vocal when a good football game was on TV (especially the SF 49ers) and will be remembered by loved ones as being caring, loving and silly.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Carol and Avery Glenn; brothers Chuck and Bill; sisters Edie, Bonnie and Dorothy; and father-in-law Ken Collier.
The family would like to express their immense gratitude to Kaiser Roseville Hospice for their support during his final weeks.
A Celebration of Life will be planned in the months to come. A Go Fund Me account has been set up to help with final expenses and to provide the memorial information once available, www.gofundme.com/bolding.
