Robert Lee Olson died Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021 peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones. He was 82 years old.

He was born May 27, 1938 to C. Albert and Mildred (Larson) Olson.

He enjoyed farming, deer hunting and spear fishing. However, he was happiest surrounded by his “Little Turkey’s” (his great-grandchildren). He will fondly be remembered as “Turkey Grandpa” to many loved ones.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy; parents, C. Albert and Mildred Olson; brothers, Carl, Lawrence, Howard and Floyd; sister, Edith Mart; and grandson, Blaine Michael.

He is survived by children, Julie (Duane) Tate, Cathy (Bob) Adams, Bill (Loni) Olson, Bob Olson, Brenda (Dave) Rono, John (Tamee) Olson, Juanita (Tim) Decker, Sandy (Scott) Larson, Renee (Red) Olson and Lisa (Rob) Olson; sisters, Alice Zortman and Karen Wallskog; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Condolences may be posted at
