It is with deep sadness that the family announces the passing of Percy Olson, at St. Paul's Hospital on March 23, 2014, at the age of 89. Percy was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He had a quick sense of humour and a twinkle in his eye. Percy was a principled and kind man and lived his life accordingly. His grandchildren have recently talked about what a positive role model he has been in their lives. Percy was at peace when approaching the end of his life - his Christian faith was a source of strength and comfort to him. Percy is survived by his loving and supportive wife of 57 years, Charlotte; daughters, Karen (Jack) van Dyke, Susan (Guy) Keeler; grandchildren, Brett (Catlin), Michael, Jessica and Bryce; and his new great granddaughter Hailey Charlotte, who he proudly met on March 15th. Percy is also survived by brothers Gerald (Flora), Kenneth (Jean), Gordon (Donna); sister-in-law Lillian; brother-in-law Gerald (Joan) and numerous nieces and nephews. Percy was predeceased by his parents, Clara (Afseth) and Olai; sisters Phyllis (Elmer), Margaret and Pearl; brothers Harold, Earl (Jean), Melvin, Keith (Betty) and Orville; sister-in-laws Sue (William) Taylor, Betty Fletcher and brother-in-law Jack Paxton. Percy's family would like to thank Dr. Rob Billington for his exceptional care; and also the caring staff at St. Paul's Hospital on 6th Floor Medicine and in the Palliative Care Unit. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Luther Care Communities c/o Luther Care Foundation at 1212 Osler Street, Saskatoon, S7N0T9; or St. Paul's Palliative Care Unit c/o St. Paul's Hospital Foundation at 1702 20th St. West, Saskatoon, S7M0Z9.
