Bruce Wayne Wolf was born July 13, 1955 in Hazen, ND, the son of Herbert and Freida (Koehler) Wolf. He grew up on the family farm northeast of Halliday and attended Halliday Public Schools; graduating with the class of 1973. Following graduation, Bruce enlisted in the United States Army, serving with the 2D Infantry Division in Korea. Upon being honorably discharged on July 1, 1975, he returned to North Dakota and attended Bismarck Junior College where he received an Associate Degree in Applied Science. It was during this time that he met Dawn Kruckenberg. On December 16, 1978, the two were united in marriage at Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Halliday. To this union two sons were born: Levi and Luke. Together, the couple raised their family in and around the Dodge area for several years before moving to Killdeer. While living in Killdeer, Bruce worked as a CDL driver for Matador and Koch Services. In 1992, Bruce began working as a salesman for Sax Motors in Dickinson. Bruce and Dawn moved to Dickinson in 2001 and have made it their home ever since. In 2008, he opened his independent trucking company, Pony Xpress.
