"Plumb" to mean the adverb "utterly" is correct.

As for "past or passed along wisdom," it should read: "My father passed along wisdom."
and "Always value "passed-along wisdom."
However, if "past is used to mean "beyond a point in time or space," then one uses "past," as in
"My father and I walked past the bakery."
