If you're traveling to Lake George, why not be on Lake George?

John W. Wolford Jr. (May 15,1952-May 14, 2015)

If you’ve stayed at the Lake Motel during Americade, and you’re not a vegetarian, you probably had a burger or a hot dog cooked especially for you by John Wolford. John has been coming to Americade and staying with us for an amazing 19 consecutive years. Sadly, Americade 2014 was John’s last. Tragically, John passed away on May 14.

All of us at the Lake Motel are deeply saddened by John’s passing. Our sincere condolences go out to his family and especially his wife Tammey. All of our guests are special but the void left by his absence will be impossible to fill. John was one of the most cheerful and generous people we have been fortunate to know. It was he and his best friend Larry Breedlove who volunteered to barbecue burgers and hot dogs and make baked beans for all our Americade guests some five years ago. Since then the Lake Motel Americade barbecue has been an annual affair, with John and Larry pretty much running the show and making it better every year.

The Lake Motel is dedicating Americade 2015 to John Wolford’s memory. We invite anyone who knew this special man to stop by during Americade and share stories or enjoy the annual barbecue. We are determined to honor him by making it the best ever.
