Former Walmarts music supervisor, Michael Wolf, died Friday in his sleep at his home in Nashville, Tenn., where he had been living with his wife of nearly 40 years, Hana Wolff, and daughter, Rachel Wolff.
Wolff had been hospitalized since late last week.
A cause of death was not immediately released.
He was 89.
He joined Wal-mart in 1963 as a manager for the Music Department.
Wolf also worked as a music producer for Universal Studios, where he directed movies such as “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.”
Wolff left Wal-marts in the mid-1970s to become a music supervisor for Universal Music.
Wolfs first wife, Hanas, died in 2004 and their daughter, Hala, in 2008.
A memorial service for Wolff will be held Sunday at the Wal-Marts Grand Ballroom.
A message left at the Wolffs’ Nashville home was not returned.
Wolford had worked for Wal-meters for decades as an independent producer, manager and musician.
He began his career in the 1960s working on “The Adventures of Puss in Boots” and “Moe and the Magic Lamp.”
His music career began at Universal Studios with his “The Muppet Show” music group, which was later renamed “Muppet World” in 1972.
He played guitar, bass and drums for the band for several years before he returned to music.
He also worked on such films as “The Godfather” and the “Toys in the Attic” franchise.
Wolft played drums for his band at the U.S. Capitol, the White House and other events.
Wolfell is survived by his wife, Nancy, and two children, Hayden and Lorna.
