William John Olson

January 27, 1927 – November 23, 2010


“One Heck of a Good Guy”


Dad was born in Prince George and at the age of one moved to Nakusp. Growing up in the logging industry and working throughout the area. There were not many lakes he hadn’t

fished and even fewer valleys and logging roads he hadn’t hunted. His warm heart, baby blues and glowing smile greeted everyone. Dad enjoyed making new friends and visiting with old ones.


He will be missed by his wife of 59 years Norma, daughters Wilma (Ron) and Wendy (Dan). Grandchildren Sheena, Shea (Corrie), Kailey, Drew, Brittany, Devin. Brother Glen (Gail) as well as numerous nephews and a niece.


The family would like to invite those who’s heart he has touched to join them in raising a glass in Celebration of John’s life. Saturday, December 4th, 2010 at the Seniors’s Centre 2 – 4 pm.


In lieu of flowers, the family is accepting donations to be used towards a bench along the Nakusp Water Front.
