John “Jack” Leroy Woolf Jr., industry pioneer and prominent Fresno-area farmer, has passed away at the age of 102.

Woolf, who launched Woolf Farming Company in 1974, was among the first to plant almonds and pistachios in California’s Fresno County, a leading commodity that generates billions of dollars in revenue for the region every year.
